Reconstructive Surgeons Ready to Help Improve Your Life

Complex Spinal Reconstruction is only used to treat the most severe spine problems and should be performed by a highly trained, experienced surgeon.

Spine surgery, or reconstructive spine surgery is only recommended when traditional therapy has failed and minimally invasive surgery will not solve the problem.
Patients who are candidates for reconstructive spine surgery generally suffer from complex spine conditions resulting from scoliosis, spinal deformities, fractures, tumors or severe degenerative disc disorder.

Reconstructive spine surgery should only be performed by the most experienced spine surgeon because of the unique pathology of each case. Compared to minimally invasive surgery, complex spine surgery has much greater variability during the procedure creating a higher risk of complications.

The surgical team at CSI is known for their experience and expertise in complex spine reconstruction surgery. For years, Comprehensive Spine Institute has been accepting referrals from other spine surgeons for this procedure.

Is a Spinal Reconstruction Surgery right for me?

Although only your doctor can tell you if a Spinal Reconstruction Surgery is the right treatment plan for you, you might be a qualifying candidate if:

  • You are experiencing pain from scoliosis, severe degenerative disc disease, spinal deformities, or spinal tumors

  • You suffer from co-occurring disorders such as scoliosis paired with degenerative disc disease

  • You have tried other treatment options like (but not limited to) physical therapy, bracing or even minimally invasive surgery without success

  • Your diagnosis calls for surgery across more than 3 spinal segments

  • You have failed back surgery syndrome from a previous spine surgery and your pain or symptoms are worsening

Recovery Time from Reconstructive Spine Surgery

Although the recovery time will depend on the extent of your surgery and your general health before the procedure, you should expect to need some down time and rest immediately following the surgery.

Reconstructive Spine Surgery is usually done in a hospital rather than a surgery center because some procedures can require a few days stay. Patients generally feel some pain after the surgery and during recovery. The pain will subside and most patients report happiness with the results within just a few short months.
