Spinal and Orthopedic Surgeons: Exceptional people; extraordinary work

According to the North American Spine Society, four out of five adults will suffer significant back pain during their life. Spinal disorders also often affect various other parts of the body, notably the neck, arms, feet and torso. Injuries and difficulties in these areas are often found to be related to a neurological problem, whether a symptom or a cause.

As you read this, great surgeons are performing extraordinary work routinely, with skill and dedication, in the area of Spinal and Orthopedic surgery. These surgeons are at the cutting edge of medicine, intent on freeing sufferers from pain and restoring them to as normal and active a life as quickly as possible. They know how debilitating a life with pain is and they want to help you reach your full physical potential as efficiently as they can with the minimum of discomfort and 'down time'.

Also, as many advanced treatments mean muscle or tissue need not be cut, healing and recovery is much faster than with traditional open back surgery.

Traditional orthopedic procedures can require long periods of recuperation and can result in unsightly scarring, but the most advanced and least invasive techniques result in faster recovery and far less scarring or bruising.

Successful Spinal and Orthopedic surgeons recognize that practices will change and they are required to constantly learn, change and grow, utilizing new ideas and treatments. Surgeons in these areas will have typically have gone through at least 13 -14 years of study, exams and residency experience to gain the necessary experience to be considered qualified to work in these rarefied surgical areas.
