Back Surgery Overview
Back surgery is a treatment for sever back pain that is usually explored only after other treatment options have been exhausted. If you're still experiencing considerable amount of pain despite using medications and other non-surgical methods, and if your symptoms result from conditions that your doctor thinks can be corrected by surgery, this method can be used.
Below are possible indications for surgery:
- Herniated disc
- Fractures of the spine and dislocations
- Painful spondylolisthesis
- Neurologic deficits caused by nerve compression or instability
