Orthopedic Back and Spine Surgery

Westmed's orthopedic back and spine surgeons are physicians who specialize in surgical procedures of the spine. Patients often consult with our spine surgeons when medications, physical therapy, and/or injections have failed to relieve radicular pain from the back and neck. For conditions that do not require emergency surgery, our spine surgeons generally begin with a non-operative approach to treatment.

Conditions We Treat

Our specialists treat numerous conditions that affect the spine, including herniated disks, sciatica, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, fractures, spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis, radiculopathy, scoliosis, kyphosis (unnatural curvature of the spine), spinal deformities, degenerative disk disease, arthritis and tumors.

Modes of Treatment

Our board-certified surgeons are highly skilled in the latest minimally invasive techniques of spine surgery, which allows for less post-operative pain, smaller incisions, and faster recovery time. Our physicians are also highly experienced in traditional open spine surgery. Depending on the procedure, surgeons may use an anterior, posterior or lateral approach to the spine. Their areas of expertise include:

  • Microdiscectomy
  • Laminectomy
  • Minimally Invasive Lumbar Fusion
  • Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
  • Posterior Cervical Spine Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Lumbar Instrumentation

Why We Are Different

Our board-certified orthopedic spine surgeons are highly experienced in numerous forms of surgery that involve the spine. They use the latest minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, employing computer-assisted image guidance. Our surgeons work with patients to ensure that all pre- and post-surgical protocols are followed. Surgery is performed in state-of-the-art operating rooms. Patients are informed of all options for treatment, and play an active role in decision-making.
