Spine Surgeon

Why should I see a spinal surgeon?

Whether you suffered from serious trauma or have been suffering from lingering back pain for years, you might need to consider spine surgery. You should schedule an evaluation with a spine surgeon if you have:

  • Broken or dislocated vertebrae
  • A slipped or ruptured disc that isn’t improving
  • Bone spurs that are aggravating your spinal cord
  • Muscle weakness, numbness, or pain in your legs
  • Narrowing of your spinal column (spinal stenosis)
  • Back nerve problems that lead to loss of bowel and/or bladder control

It’s also important to see a spinal surgeon if your back pain and symptoms are so severe, they’re keeping you from your work or other daily activities.
