The importance of back pain treatment

At Central Florida Regional Hospital, we are dedicated to providing excellent spine and orthopedic care. Back pain is a very common condition, and chronic back pain is pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lives.

Left untreated, back pain may be a symptom of a more serious medical condition. So if you are experiencing chronic or intense back pain, you should be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible.

Spine conditions we treat

Many spine conditions can lead to back and neck pain. We provide treatment for the following conditions:

  • Degenerative scoliosis
  • Facet osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Kyphotic deformities
  • Myelopathy
  • Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Traumatic spinal fractures

Spine surgery

Some spine conditions can be treated with medication, physical therapy and lifestyle changes. Other spine conditions may require surgery. Our spine surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat spine conditions.

Spine surgeries we provide include:

  • Cervical and lumbar fusion
  • Cervical discectomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Laminectomy
  • Microdiscectomy

Robotic spine surgery

Our spine surgeons treat patients using minimally invasive robotic surgery. Our robotic spine surgery system offers our surgeons a 3D virtual tool that allows them to preplan the procedure. Once the custom surgical plan is in place, our surgeons use the robotic surgical system to help them throughout surgery.

The surgeons control the robotic system during surgery. The robotic system translates the surgeon's movements into tiny movements inside the body. This allows us to perform complex operations using small incisions with great precision and accuracy.

Benefits of robotic spine surgery include:

  • Fast recovery
  • Fewer scars
  • Reduced pain
  • Small incisions
