Choosing the right Spine Surgeon
If you’ve struggled with back pain and or leg pain for an extended period of time, you may be wondering if spine surgery is the next step in your treatment plan. The vast majority of back problems can be treated non-surgically. After a course of conservative care which typically includes physical therapy, chiropractic care, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, you may be referred to spine surgeon.
There are several things to consider when choosing a spine surgeon:
- Years of Experience
- Specific Training for you problems
- Were all of your questions answered
- Were you given options
