Spinal surgery

Spinal surgery

Most people experience periods of back pain. In cases of persistent and severe pain in the lower back or neck, with or without radiation to the arms or legs, our experienced spine specialists offer a thorough and prompt investigation using clinical examination and advanced imaging technology.

After the diagnosis, such as herniated disc, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal), spinal defects, spinal deformities, nerve pain, or osteoarthritis-related pain, a treatment plan will be developed in consultation with the patient and after careful consideration of any surgical options.

Following thorough examinations of your back and possibly other parts of your body, we help you manage your problems by either prescribing medication, providing exercises, or, if necessary, performing surgery. Surgery (spinal surgery) may be considered if exercises, medication, or relief measures have not had a positive effect on your symptoms.

However, there are always risks associated with surgeries, so we only perform spinal surgery if we assess it as necessary.

What is spinal surgery?

Surgery involves opening a person's body to access its interior. It can be likened to taking a car to a mechanic, where the mechanic has to disassemble the car. It's not sufficient to just open the hood or give the surface a new coat of paint.

The word "surgery" comes from Greek (cheirurgiké) and means "work with the hand." In Danish, surgery involves addressing diseases and issues through surgical procedures. When mentioning the word "surgery," it refers to an operation, so spinal surgery is therefore an operation on the back.

Despite the term, it may also involve operations on the lower back and neck, but what they have in common is that they are related to the spine.

When do you need back surgery?

As mentioned in the introduction, back surgery is an option when there are no other treatment possibilities. If it involves a back injury that only requires time to heal, followed by rehabilitation and regular exercises until the back returns to its previous condition, we will likely not recommend surgery.

We also will not recommend surgery if it is deemed to be too risky compared to the benefits it may provide.

Whether you have lower back, upper back, or neck pain, we will always evaluate each case carefully. In consultation with you, our spine surgeons will confer with each other to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment. Surgery will be considered if it is deemed to be safe or if your back pain is so limiting that there are no better alternatives.
