Non-Surgical Treatment

Saint Francis Healthcare provides a range of non-surgical treatment options for conditions causing back pain that include:

  • Injections: such as epidural steroid injections, cortisone steroid injections, facet joint injections and injections to the nerve root sacroiliac.
  • Physical Therapy: including both passive and active treatments, stretching, strengthening and low impact aerobic exercise

Surgical Services

While most cases of back pain can be successfully treated with non-surgical options, some conditions may require surgery. Some of the diagnoses that may need surgery include:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Myelopathy and Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral Fractures
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Cord Compression
  • Sciatica

Board-certified spine surgeons at the Saint Francis Bartlett Joint & Spine Center work with a specialized team of physicians to determine the best surgical treatment options for the patient. Surgical options may include:

  • Laminectomy/Discectomy: a procedure in which part of the lamina is removed as well as a portion of a ligament. The herniated disc is then removed.
  • Microdiscectomy: a procedure similar to a discectomy, but using a smaller injection
  • Lumbar Spinal Fusion: when two or more vertebra are joined together using bone grafts, screws and rods
  • Hardware Revision
