SPINAL CONDITIONS

Gulf Coast Orthopedics' fellowship trained surgeon is educated and experienced in a full range of medical and surgical treatments for a variety of spinal issues ranging from lower back pain to back trauma and neck trauma.

The spine consists of individual vertebrae that form a column which provides protection for the spinal cord and nerves which communicate with muscles and telegraph sensations and messages to the brain. The surgeons who specialize in surgeries to the spine have completed specialized training in surgical procedures to the cervical and lumbar regions for repair and correction of various medical conditions. Their area of specialization enables them to repair or correct medical conditions including degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, arthritis, and to surgically repair or correct ruptured discs.

Our spine surgeons perform both “minimally invasive surgery” and “closed” procedures. Some of these procedures require advanced surgical equipment such as specialized operating microscopes that enable the surgeon to magnify areas of repair through a small incision.

Back pain is the second most common reported cause of pain behind headaches, with eight out of ten people expected to experience some sort of back pain at one time on their lives. With such a prevalent problem stemming from a variety of sources and contributing problems, it is important to make sure you see the most qualified spine care specialists possible.

The spine services at Gulf Coast Orthopedics offer a unique comprehensive blend of operative and non-operative treatments for many neck, nerve and spine problems. Our surgeons work with staff to provide patients integrated multidisciplinary care for spine and spinal nerve conditions.

 

The experts at Gulf Coast Orthopedics are dedicated to treating each patient individually, taking the time to examine each symptom to ensure proper treatment of spine problems, big and small. We are here to make sure our patients have the best possible care every step of the way. Gulf Coast Orthopedics provides both non-surgical treatment (pain management and physical therapy, injections) as well as surgical intervention if the condition calls for it.
