Orthopedics - Spine and Neck

What is Spine or Neck Surgery?
When people experience pain in their neck, mid- or lower back, spine and neck surgery can repair damage to alleviate pain. 

When Should You Consider Spine or Neck Surgery?
  •  If you've tried other methods/treatments to alleviate spine and neck pain without success 
  • When headaches, shoulder, leg and arm pain keep you from everyday activities 
  • When bone spurs, ruptured disks or vertebrae pinched nerves cause pain 
After Surgery
After every surgery, recovery and rehabilitation are important steps for every patient to take. At Kaweah Delta, patients will work their orthopedic surgeon and staff members at Kaweah Delta Rehabilitation Therapy Services to begin an exercise program that will help them regain range of motion and return to their favorite activities.

Considering Surgery
If you are considering spine or neck surgery, speak to your primary care physician. For a list of orthopedic surgeons call Kaweah Delta's Information Center at (877) 529-3241.
