Spinal Surgery

Dusty Smith, MD

Back surgery might be an option if conservative treatments haven’t worked and your pain is persistent and disabling. But before you have back surgery, here are three important questions we will answer for you.

What is the specific cause of my pain?

Before you have back surgery with Gadsden Orthopedics, we will make sure that we have thoroughly pinpointed and can explain what the source of your pain is.

Have I tried all the right conservative options first?

We will help you explore all your options. This may include injections, weight loss and physical therapy.

What will my recovery be like?

We will talk with you about what you can expect post-surgery and how much physical therapy will be required for your success. We will continue to support you throughout the recovery process until you are back to school, work or play.
