Back pain relief is the ultimate outcome of back surgery.
Age and injury are the leading causes of back pain in the United States, but it doesn’t have to cripple you. While nearly 80 percent of all Americans will suffer back pain at some point in their lives (and more than 30 million Americans currently have back pain), most can relieve their pain with:
- Rest, ice and heat
- Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication
- Non-invasive techniques, such as stretches or physical therapy
- Epidural steroid injections
The goal of all these treatments is back pain relief, however, not correcting a medical condition or severe injury. When you have a serious condition, your doctor may recommend surgery. The goal of back surgery is to stop the pain at its source by correcting the root problem. The ultimate outcome of back surgery is waking up every morning without back pain.
Types of Back Surgery
Back pain relief doesn’t happen with the wave of a magic wand. It takes knowledge, technology and skill — things you’ll find in abundance at the Southeastern Spine Institute. The spine specialists and surgeons at SSI work together, across disciplines and specialties, to accurately diagnose and treat back problems. As a result, fewer than 10 percent of all patients at SSI end up needing back surgery.
If you’re among those few who need surgery, your surgeon at SSI will match the most appropriate procedure to alleviate your condition. Long-term back pain relief is still the main objective. The type of surgery you need may be one of the following:

Imagine back pain relief so thorough, so pervasive, that you never again even think about it. Imagine waking up every morning looking forward to the day’s activities without having to consider how you’ll manage your pain. Imagine not just returning to a normal life, but being able to return to a level of activity that you haven’t known since before your back pain began. That’s what successful back surgery can mean.
