There are different approaches or forms of spine surgery; each correcting a specific problem. Your physician may need to remove bone or disc tissue, relieve pressure or fuse vertebrae together to provide more stability or support. Your surgeon’s goal will be to identify the most reasonable course of surgical intervention that will serve two purposes: correct or relieve your condition and cause the least amount of disruption in the process.
We perform back surgery at multiple facilities in Memphis, and some patients may even be candidates for outpatient spine surgery at one of our two ambulatory surgery centers. Several factors dictate where your spine surgery will be performed, including your overall health, specific spine condition and insurance.
