When to consider back surgery?
Our spine is one of the most important parts of the body. It supports all the movement that goes on in our bodies. While it is one of the most important structures in our bodies, it is also the most taxed since various injuries can occur from regular movement. When that happens, seeing a doctor is a must before things get worse.
Almost all of us have experienced some kind of back pain or another in our life. Many types of back issues can be very painful and cause some intense discomfort in our daily routine. Patients that have experienced this wonder what kind of treatment plan is necessary, and if surgery is in the near future. However, some back pains get better in time without surgical intervention. That is why consulting with an orthopedic doctor or a neurosurgeon is highly advisable since they are spine specialists who have seen and treated all kinds of spinal issues.
Neurosurgeons and Orthopedic Specialists
While these two have different specialties, they are both qualified to carry out spine surgeries. Neurosurgeon specialize in handling spinal surgeries, tumors, and pain management while an orthopedic doctor specializes in bones, muscles, joints and the general musculoskeletal system. In some cases neurosurgeons and orthopedists work closely together to resolve a patient’s ailments.
When considering surgery your doctor will be able to help you with your decision making process and should be able to help you choose the best options for your treatment as well as explaining the risks of each procedure. As a patient, you must remember that you are in control of how you want to proceed with treatment. So choosing the right doctor who can help keep you informed and knowledgable about how each procedure works is essential when you are considering surgery.
Back Pain Relief
Back surgery, when needed, can help bring much needed resolution to a back issue. However, there are a few tests that are used to further evaluate your candidacy for surgical intervention. Spinal instability and nerve pinching are the types of problems that can be seen on MRI scans and CT scans. If non-surgical solutions still do not help alleviate the patient’s pain, a spine specialist can determine with the assistance of imaging techniques if surgery is the next logical step in spine care.
In a medical scenario it’s always good to seek professional help when feeling chronic pain since our spine is very important for us to function in our daily life. Our center provides top of the line quality spine care and surgery. We have qualified surgeons that will be able to help in diagnosing the problem and provide the best solutions for your back pain.
