Many conditions that result in back pain may be treated effectively without spine surgery. Before deciding on back pain surgery, our physicians may recommend a variety of non-surgical procedures such as aquatic therapy, spinal injections, physical therapy, and medication.
To find a back pain surgery specialist, you may ask your primary care physician for a referral or use Find a Doctor on our website. This tool allows you to search for a physician by name, by practice name or by specialty, as well as by location, gender and languages spoken.
