TIMING: A CRUCIAL COMPONENT OF BACK SURGERY
Back surgery isn’t something our specialists rush into. Often, we will monitor your condition for several weeks or months to see if your body can heal on its own or if your condition will respond to conservative measures.
However, once surgery is recommended, you do not want to delay treatment. Ongoing spinal cord compression due to a progressively worsening condition can result in substantial, and potentially irreversible, nerve damage.
MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION FOR YOU
At Long Island Spine Specialists, we are here to walk you through the decision-making process and help you determine if back surgery is in your best interest. We will always offer honest, objective guidance based on your unique condition and circumstances — and we will only recommend surgery if we are confident that you will benefit from the procedure.
