What is a Spine Surgeon?

Spine surgery is one of the most challenging subspecialties of medicine, due to the delicate nature of spine anatomy. A spine surgeon is a highly trained orthopaedic surgeon, well versed in the intricacies of back and neck structures. After completing medical school, spine surgeons receive specialized residency and fellowship training in the field.

A spine surgeon stays up-to-date with cutting-edge spine surgery treatments for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine as they become available. Spine surgeons have devoted their career to focusing on back and neck treatments specifically, gaining experience and perfecting their skill. They are dedicated to achieving the best possible treatment outcome for their patients.

A spine surgeon treats the spine with conservative efforts before rushing to surgery whenever possible, understanding that surgery isn’t always risk free. They reduce the risk of spine surgery complications by ensuring that the surgery is necessary, working closely with a skilled anesthesiologist, and prescribing the necessary medications to help you avoid blood clots. During surgery, your spine surgeon will also help minimize risks by carefully protecting the nerve fibers and other structures of your spinal cord. Afterwards, your surgeon will monitor the location of any surgical implants you may receive.
