Finding the right spine surgery treatment center for you
Living with severe neck or back pain can be very disruptive to your life. While conservative therapies like rest, medication and injections work for some people, they don’t work for everyone. You may be recommended to consider surgery if you have not found enough relief for a good quality of life after fully exhausting conservative treatments.
In addition to hospital settings, spine surgery can also be performed in a dedicated spine surgery center that offers many potential advantages in terms of both the experience and the procedures offered. The following tips can help you find a spine center that is equipped to offer you the lasting pain relief you deserve.
Three factors to look for in your search
- The staff. Make sure that the surgeon who will perform your procedure is credentialed, experienced and has a good reputation. It is also important that a prospective surgeon makes you feel comfortable, takes the time to answer your questions and fully explains the procedure being performed.
- The facilities. Look for a clean, well lit, aesthetically pleasing facility with updated equipment. You should feel comfortable and at ease in the waiting area, and you should have access to amenities like food and the internet.
- The search. Do your homework to find trends about patient satisfaction and the overall reputation of the spine surgery center you’re looking at. Also, ask your family, friends and your primary care doctor for advice or recommendations. You may be surprised how word travels, and someone might have some insight into the spine center you’re considering or recommend another one you hadn’t looked at yet.
