SURGICAL TREATMENTS

Overview

In most cases surgery should only be considered after non-invasive/minimally invasive methods have been exhausted. Decisions about surgery require careful evaluation as the type and timing of surgery will depend on the severity of your condition, the presence or absence of pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, duration of current back pain, and your past medical history, circumstances and current general state of health.
