SURGERY IS A LAST RESORT

We feel that it’s always best if your body heals itself and corrects the problem on its own. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. If the problem has been identified and surgery has been deemed the best available method to correct your problem, we will use the most minimally invasive techniques possible.

At First State Spine we take time to explain your condition and demonstrate for you how we propose to repair it. It is very important to get a second opinion from a spine specialist who is qualified to give the second opinion. We appreciate that the choice to have surgery is not easy and we want you to be confident.

MAKE AN EDUCATED DECISION

Second and third opinions are helpful because they make you familiar with the source of your pain, the surgical options, the risks/benefits/alternatives to surgery, and the medical language we use when discussing your problem. Once you have spoken to us and understand why we are suggesting a procedure your fear level can significantly decrease.

We encourage you to bring your family and friends to hear the explanation. Many people come with questions written down and are educated as we go over each question. We outline the risks very clearly. Most patients are surprised to find that the concerns they are most worried about almost never happen.
