Surgical Treatments

Typically, surgery should be considered only after non-invasive or minimally invasive methods have failed. Any decision about surgery requires careful evaluation because the type and timing of surgery depend on the severity of the disorder, the presence or absence of pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, how long the pain has been present, and past medical history.
