Do Orthopedic and Neurosurgeons Always Recommend Surgery?:

At Coastal Neurosurgery and Spine the answer is NO.

That debilitating limp, tingling, numbness, everyday pain or acute fracture has got you worried -- not just about the impact it's making on your everyday life, but also about the prospect of undergoing surgery.

But you might find yourself pleasantly surprised when you bring that painful problem to CNS. Our surgeons, look to recommend non-surgical treatment methods to restore your mobility and comfort, even if another practitioner has already tried to steer you toward the operating room.

Conditions Commonly Treated by Orthopedic Surgery

Surgery isn't the only thing you can expect when going to an orthopedic doctor. There are indeed many joint and bone problems that respond well to orthopedic surgery if other methods cannot give you a satisfactory result. We may recommend surgery for conditions and situations that other methods have all been exhausted.

Trying Conservative Treatment First

Regardless of the potential benefits, you should always get a second opinion if you're told that you need any kind of surgery. Individual practitioners must rely on their own experiences, skill sets, risk assessments, and insights when it comes to recommending a particular form of treatment. But surgery should represent a last resort. At Coastal Neurosurgery & Spine that is why we have the Coastal Experience presenting a more modern and advanced program to the Panhandle area. Invasive procedures inevitably damage healthy tissues even as they repair previous damage, if only through the creation of incisions. Surgery typically requires lengthy recovery and rehabilitation periods as well. Our surgeons at CNS believes in pursuing conservative treatment first, in the hopes of giving you the relief you need without the need for surgery. At Coastal we have a variety of Options to explore.
