How an orthopedic spine surgeon can help you

Spring, The Woodlands & Houston

Back pain may be a common problem, but for some, the pain is so severe and chronic that it requires a surgical approach to treat. Fortunately, spine surgery has been an area that’s benefited dramatically from modern medical technologies, so it is an effective solution for common back pain symptoms in patients where conservative treatment is not providing adequate relief. At Next Generation Orthopedic and Spine Institute, you will be under the care of a fellowship-trained spine surgeon, Dr. Anthony Owusu, who can help you restore your quality of life and live free from back pain with conservative and minimally-invasive treatment options.

Symptoms to Address with a Spine Surgeon

Most patients who experience a slipped or herniated disc are older, as degeneration of the spine naturally occurs with age. However, there are other risk factors that can contribute to disc injuries, such as:

  • Persistent back pain that occurs in the same area of the spine
  • Numbness or weakness in the extremities
  • Low back pain accompanied by poor bladder or bowel control
  • Back pain following an acute or traumatic injury
  • Loss of mobility related to back pain
  • Spinal deformities, such as scoliosis or kyphosis

Treatment Options with Spine Surgery

We work closely with patients to address their back pain and select the most appropriate treatment options. The first line of care will be conservative treatment with medication, physical therapy, and other non-surgical options. If these treatments are not effective, the doctor may recommend one of these minimally-invasive surgeries:

  • Spinal fusion
  • Decompression
  • Discectomy
  • Disc replacement
  • Microdiscectomy
