Surgical Treatments for Brain and Spine Patients

Surgical and Nonsurgical Approaches to Back Pain Relief

Physical medicine, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and pain management can eliminate the need for surgery. It will also speed up the recovery time and improve the final outcome after a necessary surgery. Relaxation techniques, pain management, and physical therapy modalities greatly reduce inflammation and its associated pain.
Surgery is offered when conservative efforts have been exhausted or when it is the only means to resolve an injury or tumor. Our surgeons always operate through a small incision site so as to minimize the post-operative discomfort which will reduce and improve the recovery period.

By way of acupuncture, acupressure, trigger point injections, medications, joint injections, epidurals, transforaminal injections, rhizotomy, or caudal injections, pain can be alleviated and inflammation reduced. When used for the correct diagnosis, these treatment options can help reduce a headache, prevent an unnecessary surgery or help recover from an injury.

The team at Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics will accurately identify the correct diagnosis anywhere along the spectrum from mild back pain or a headache to severe spine deformity or brain tumor.
