Orthopedic Spine Surgery: A Last Resort

On the other hand, back pain, in general, may not be successfully resolved with orthopedic spine surgery, even though the surgery itself is performed successfully. At Hunt Spine, we never rush our patients into spine surgery. It is important to understand that in non-emergency situations, spine surgery is considered an elective surgery. Back pain can sometimes be addressed as effectively through physical therapy and other alternative treatments such as spine surgery. It is considered a beneficial practice to undergo 6 months of alternative therapy before considering orthopedic spine surgery.

If your symptoms include leg and arm numbness or tingling, orthopedic spine surgery may be a viable option, as these often indicate pressure around the spinal cord which can be resolved through surgery. Back pain by itself is not always caused by damage to the spine or pressure on the spinal cord and therefore does not necessarily require surgery.
