Having Surgery at the Spine Center

Surgery is the best option for a very small percentage of patients with spine conditions. Wherever you may be in the process of learning about your condition and your choices, we strive to provide information that will help. The time we spend with you in our clinic is only the beginning. Take-home materials and this website are also important tools. You should always feel that you are in the driver's seat, with expert guidance to get you where you want to go.

Below, you can learn about spine surgery at our Center from a video featuring Spine Center patients and surgeons, materials in our spine surgery guide, and animations of surgical procedures.

Our Surgery Video



Your Resource Guide

When patients choose surgery, we provide a resource guide. Here is the information we have developed to help ensure the best possible experience.

Spine Center Surgery Resource Guide

We also provide patients with two booklets from Krames Patient Education:

  • The Post-Op Back Book: Taking Charge of Your Recovery from Surgery
  • Cervical Disk Surgery: Treating Pain and Weakness in the Neck and Arm

Spine Surgery Animations

A picture can be worth a thousand words, and an animation can help you understand spine anatomy and surgery on the spine.
