Spinal Fusion

  Explore Spinal Surgery, including Spinal Fusion, as a Second Chance

When you have experienced a significant amount of back pain, you need to learn about the options that are available to you. There may be degenerative or traumatic etiology that needs to be identified and dealt with. At our clinic, Dr. John Styliaras Neurosurgeon, can work with you to explore the various options so that you get a second chance of getting your life back.


While visiting a spine surgeon can seem like a last resort, it may be an important next step in your treatment. Depending upon the injury or degenerative process that led to the spinal pathology, you may not have the mobility that you once had. Additionally, you may be dealing with so much pain that it affects your quality of life and/or severely impacts your activities of daily living.


By taking the time to schedule a consultation, we can determine whether you are a candidate for spinal fusion. This involves fusing vertebrae together in order to strengthen the spine. It can help to eliminate pain or at least reduce it significantly.


Traumatic spinal energy needs to be established as it can affect your level of pain and even what can happen next. Not all spine surgeons take this into consideration, which is why some surgeries are not as successful as they could be.


You want to make sure that a spinal fusion is going to be the solution that you need it to be. This is why it’s important to ask questions and work with a surgeon who has the necessary expertise. I’m here to answer the questions that you have to ensure that you are prepared for what will happen next.


Many people feel as though they’ve gotten a “second lease on life” following a fusion surgery. It alleviates a lot of the chronic pain that they were dealing with prior to surgery. Further, it allows for a higher level of mobility so that you can go back to enjoying your life.


Since not everyone is a candidate, there will be the need to run different tests. Only after studying images and asking questions can we determine if you’re going to qualify for this kind of surgery. In the event that you don’t qualify, there can be other treatment options available so that you can still experience relief.


It all starts with scheduling an appointment. This gives me a chance to talk to you, look at your medical history, conduct an exam, and run some tests. I can talk to you about all that is involved in the surgery and what you can expect afterward.


If you want to start experiencing a better life and stop being hindered by back pain, let’s discuss fusion surgery to see if it’s right for you.
