What should I think of when making a decision for Spine Surgery?

When finally deciding on the type of approach for your spine surgery, you must be working with a trusted spine surgeon who has your best interests in mind. Your doctor should be a caring and compassionate individual, and he or she should listen to your concerns about surgery and answer any questions you may have.

There are best practices to follow when searching for the right doctor for you, including:

Facing spine surgery for your back or neck pain, you should know all of your options. Your surgeon should explain to you the type of surgery you are having and the benefits of having minimally invasive spine surgery vs traditional surgery.

When facing spinal surgery, you should take time to learn as much as you can about the procedure and approach. Finding a trusted, top-rated spine can help your decision-making process be a smooth and easy one. That way you can focus on your rapid recovery from surgery and your return to your normal active lifestyle.

The most common surgical procedures are:

ALIF, PLIF, TLIF, LIF: All pertain to lumbar interbody fusion used to stabilize the spinal vertebrae and eliminate movement between the bones.
