Treatment options for back and neck pain

Depending on the type of pain you are experiencing, treatment options can vary. 

Your spine specialist may opt for a nonsurgical approach, such as pain management techniques or nonsurgical therapies. If nonsurgical methods are unsuccessful at treating your condition, your doctor may recommend surgical treatment. Our surgeons perform the following spine surgeries:

  • Cervical fusion: surgical joining of two or more vertebrae in the neck to stabilize the spine
  • Disc replacement: replacement of the disc, or cushion, that exists between each vertebrae
  • Discectomy: surgical treatment for a herniated disc where the damaged portion of the disc is removed
  • Kyphoplasty: surgical treatment for fractures of the vertebrae
  • Laminectomy: surgery that removes the back portion of a vertebra, called the lamina, which relieves pressure being put on the spinal canal
  • Lumbar fusion: surgical joining of two or more vertebrae in the lower back to improve stability or correct an abnormality
