Complex Spine

Complex spinal disorders include conditions that involve instability of the spine because of fractures, tumors, trauma, infection, scoliosis and other conditions.

Patients with these problems often require complex spine surgery, such as spinal fusion. Spinal fusion is an operation that creates a solid union between two or more vertebrae. It may involve bone grafts and/or hardware like plates or screws. This procedure may help to strengthen and stabilize the spine and reduce severe neck or back pain and prevent neurological injury.

Successful treatment for complex spinal disorders includes not only a highly skilled and experienced surgical team, but also a comprehensive plan for pain management and rehabilitation.
