Back Surgery Q & A

How do I know if back surgery is for me?

There are a number of nonsurgical treatment options available to treat back pain, including: 

  • Physical therapy
  • Medication
  • Chiropractic care
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle modification
  • Meditation and mindfulness
  • Injection-based treatments
  • Heat or ice
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Exercise 
  • Alternative medicine 

Unfortunately, these treatments do not always minimize or eliminate your back pain successfully. The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), suggests that individuals with the following conditions are candidates for back surgery:

  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Degenerative disc disease

 If your pain persists and doesn’t respond to nonoperative treatment options, visit Subach Spinal Solutions for an examination. The results of your evaluation inform the team and determine if you are a candidate for back surgery.

What are the different types of back surgery?

The team at Subach Spinal Solutions consists of highly skilled surgeons who can perform:

  • Extreme lateral interbody fusion
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion
  • Mazor robotic screw fixation
  • Lumbar Microdiscectomy
  • Lumbar Laminectomy

The team ensures you are fully educated on your condition and procedure prior to receiving surgery. They aim to provide you with state-of-the-art care and improve your overall quality of life. 

What is recovery like after back surgery?

Back surgery is a more invasive treatment option that requires a longer recovery period. Healing has the potential to take months depending on what back surgery you receive and how healthy you are prior to receiving the surgery.

Your providers will discuss with you a pain management strategy post operatively to aid in your recovery.
