Using Complex Spinal Surgery for Your Treatment

Complex spine disorders can create a number of different issues like infections, tumors or spine instability. Most complex spinal surgeries are the result of revisions from prior back or neck surgery, scoliosis, or surgery across more than three spinal segments.


The majority of cervical symptoms in the geriatric patient can be treated with:

  • Physical therapy
  • Pain Medication including acetaminophen and anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Careful monitoring

Surgery may be indicated for a patient with:

  • Myelopathy
  • Progressive compression of the spinal cord.
  • Significant nerve root encroachment that causes pain and progressive weakness in a specific nerve root distribution.
  • Immobilization should be used only if necessary due to risk of further stiffness and muscle atrophy.
