About Us

Millions of Americans have, are, or at some point in their lives will experience back pain.  Acute (short-term) episodes of back pain may be caused by muscle strain from lifting an unusually heavy object, a car or workplace accident, or even pregnancy. Chronic (long-term – usually longer than 3 months) back pain may be related to the above events as well, some of which can cause herniated discs in the spine.  Spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, and osteoarthritis may also lead to pain in different areas of the back and neck.

Many people are able to live and work with low levels of back pain.  However, as the pain begins to impede many patients’ lives, they start to look for options for relieving their pain.  Sometimes pain medications, injections, massage, physical therapy, acupuncture, and other conservative methods provide sufficient pain relief – other times they do not.  BackSurgeons.com wants to help patients who are facing the difficult decision of whether to undergo back surgery to understand the options, risks, benefits, and alternatives.  In addition, we want to give you the tools that you need to locate back surgeons in your area as well as the questions you should ask when trying to find the best doctor for you.

Although we aspire to provide you with the most up-to-date information on the procedures currently being used in the spine surgery field, we want to remind you that ultimately your unique needs are best discussed with your spine surgeon.  Thank you for your interest in BackSurgeons.com.
