A Full Array of Nonsurgical Spine Treatment Options
It may surprise you to know that most back issues get better without surgery. In fact, only 5% of our patients actually require spinal surgery. That’s why the UMass Memorial Center for Spine Health offers a complete array of today’s most effective conservative treatment options including physical therapy and a range of pain management techniques.
When Spine Surgery Is Necessary
If conservative treatments haven’t worked and back pain prevents you from living your life to the fullest, surgery may be appropriate. When this is the case, it’s important to know that you’re in excellent hands at the UMass Memorial Center for Spine Health. We’re nationally recognized for our neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery expertise, with capabilities ranging from minimally invasive spinal decompression to complex procedures to correct spinal deformities and remove spinal tumors.
