Statistics reveal that back pain will strike four out of five Americans in their lifetime. And, once a back attack hits, you are four times more likely to have a recurrence. No wonder so many people chronically wander in and out of doctors’ offices and have enough pain pills in their medicine cabinets to rival the supply of a pharmacy.

Sometimes surgery is the best treatment, especially for those suffering from herniated discs, spinal fractures, spinal deformity, spinal tumor and scoliosis. However, it is estimated that over half of back surgeries performed are unnecessary, and in some cases, even counterproductive. In most cases at Spine Group Beverly Hills, surgery is used as a treatment option only after nonsurgical treatments have been attempted. Our physicians have advanced training in back and neck pain and are often successful in helping people return to activity – without surgery.

For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted nonsurgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the next step in resolving a spine problem. Because spine surgery is a serious decision, it is a good idea to obtain a second opinion from a board-certified and fellowship-trained spine surgeon before undergoing surgery.GET A SECOND OPINION
