Surgical Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

Few people need surgery for back and neck pain. For those who do, no single type of surgery works for every pain problem. If your doctor thinks surgery will improve your back or neck pain, he or she will suggest the type of surgery that is the best for you. A number of surgical procedures have been developed to treat each type of back and neck pain. Surgical procedures are generally done for one of four reasons:

  1. To remove pressure from the nerve roots
  2. To remove pressure from the spinal cord
  3. To stop the motion between two vertebrae
  4. To preserve the motion between two vertebrae
