For our Levittown patients who are experiencing any degree of back pain or neck pain our experienced back doctors will first suggest the least invasion treatment option. We understand that all other avenues should be explored in order to provide you with the best care. Though for some patients at NYSI spine surgery is their next or only option to reduce their pain. When it is decided upon that a patient will undergo spine surgery it is likely to give relief due to pinched nerves, spinal cord compression, or mechanical instability of the spinal cord.
