At UVA, our spine specialists devise a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Many of our treatments don’t require surgery. If you do need surgery, we offer a full range of options, from minimally invasive outpatient surgery procedures to complex spinal reconstruction.
Conditions We Treat
Spine Treatment Without Surgery
For the majority of our patients, we offer nonoperative care as the first method of treatment. Sometimes we’ll combine treatments to make them more effective.
Your provider may recommend spine surgery when other treatment options, such as medications or physical therapy, don't provide adequate relief of back pain, neck pain or other symptoms.
UVA also offers minimally invasive spine surgery. You may be a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery if you have:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative spinal disease
- Spine deformity
- Spine fracture
- Spine infection
- Spine tumor
If You Do Need Spine Surgery
At UVA we perform over 1,500 procedures a year. Our spine specialists have extensive training and experience in procedures, especially in minimally invasive procedures, such as microendoscopic decompression or fusion.
