Orthopedic Back Procedure

Back and Spine Doctor

Back problems can be some of the worst to live with, taking even a single step can be excruciating. That’s not something anyone should have to endure. Our back doctor specialists take the utmost care in not only getting you the best outcome possible but recovering in a timely manner to get you back to living your life. We offer multiple solutions, some with or without surgery, making it easier to find a solution that works best for you. 

There are many different types of health practitioners that care for patients with back and spinal conditions; each has a slightly different skillset. The selection of the most appropriate form of health professional, largely depends on the patient’s symptoms and the length of time the symptoms have been present. Luckily, Orthopedic Associates have two of the best spine doctors available. Both Brady G. Giesler, M.D. and John C. McElroy, M.D. are skilled professionals that can treat your back issues and pain.

As you can see from the list of conditions below, Orthopedic Associates spine specialists can treat many different issues. The overall goal is to get to the root of the problem, while at the same time causing the least amount of disruption to the patient’s lifestyle. While Spine surgery is typically a choice of last resort after all nonsurgical methods have been exhausted, our back doctors are available to successfully diagnose and solve the problem. Most common problems our back doctors range from moderate to server, however, you shouldn’t assume your issues will go away naturally. You could have a herniated disc or damaged vertebrae which will simply not respond without surgical treatments. While studies show that more than half of back surgeries are unnecessary, there are times when surgery is the answer. Speaking with a back doctor is a smart strategy to your road to recovery.
