Non-surgical and Minimally Invasive Options
There are many factors that can essentially contribute to a spine injury such as trauma, aging, wear and tear, and improper positioning of the body. Most spinal injuries are known to limit your activities of daily living and significantly diminish your quality of life, leaving individuals desperate for immediate treatment. These damages may also lead to severe chronic pain in the neck and back area without any signs of alleviation, which may ultimately require more advanced treatment. In fact, a physician may suggest surgical options… but is spinal surgery the only answer?
HEALTHPOINTE understands that spinal surgery can be a difficult and unsettling option to consider for your back pain. That is why we fully promote the utilization of the most advanced non-surgical treatments and minimally invasive options to effectively treat our patients’ conditions and symptoms. These alternatives will be administered by our team of neurosurgeons and physicians who are dedicated to the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all back pain and spinal conditions.

Indeed, our team favors these options as the first line of treatment, while reserving the traditional spine surgery for patients who are suffering from persistent, progressively worsening or disabling symptoms. There are many benefits from choosing the non-surgical and minimally invasive options including reduced surgical complications, reduced duration of hospitalization, and the increased speed of functional recovery.
However, if interventional pain management, comprehensive treatments and non-surgical treatments fail to provide patients with relief of their symptoms, then surgery may be considered. Fortunately, we are capable of providing each patient their own customized treatment that is appropriate and suitable for their issues and lifestyle.
Our goal is to diagnose all problems and conditions and help optimize your recovery in a safe and timely manner. Combined with our top-of-the-line medical equipment and unrivaled quality service, HEALTHPOINTE is proud to provide patients with the finest medical treatment around.
