Back and neck pain is one of the most common reasons for doctor visits in the United States, affecting up to 90% of Americans at some point in their lifetime. Approximately 50% will have recurrent episodes. It is not a specific disease but rather a symptom, and its causes are numerous. In addition, many spinal conditions can manifest not only as neck or back pain, but also shoulder, arm, hip, knee, or even foot pain. Identifying the cause of your pain is indeed the first step towards recovery. Our spine surgeons are fellowship trained in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of a variety of spinal conditions.
Many spinal conditions can and are treated conservatively, through a variety of therapies, modalities, medication, exercise, and injections, which we will carefully discuss and explain. For the patients whose condition requires surgical management, the combined experience and knowledge of the spine surgeons at Fondren insures that our patients are offered the most cutting edge and advanced surgical procedures available. We provide comprehensive surgical care with the best and newest technology available for the entire spine, and have been involved in pioneering new techniques and developing new products for the treatment of numerous spinal conditions.
We offer minimally invasive approaches when appropriate, as well as a full range of traditional and reconstructive surgical options. We look forward to helping you further understand what is causing your pain, and developing a plan for treatment that is both professional and effective.
