Back surgery is considered a last resort when chronic back pain does not respond to nonsurgical treatments. Also called spine surgery, back surgery is meant to correct serious problems affecting the spinal vertebrae and/or spinal nerves. In some cases, back surgery involves replacement or fusion of bones to eliminate pain and improve mobility. When people need an experienced back surgeon, they know they can always depend on Coastal Neurosurgery and Spine to provide superior personalized treatment and care.
