Advance Spine Surgery

*The primary purpose of back surgery or neck surgery is to correct an anatomical lesion in individuals who doesn´t show any improvement with conservative (nonsurgical) treatment. Surgery is not an option for patients when an anatomical lesion can not be identified.


*Modern spine surgery has made major advancements in both technique and spinal instrumentation/implants over the past couple of decades, but by far the most significant advancement in spine surgery has been better preoperative imaging techniques, which have greatly improved the ability of surgeons to identify accurately and correctly an anatomic lesion as a cause of pain.


Specifically, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan) has revolutionized back surgery. It is most often the best test to identify an anatomical lesion responsible for the patient’s problem.
