Comprehensive Back Surgery in Northern California

Back surgery is often a treatment for back pain or other spine-related conditions. Although most back pain subsides within a couple of months, spine damage and abnormalities cause persistent pain that limit your movement. When medication, physical therapy, and at-home remedies don’t cure your back pain, trained surgeons at Dignity Health North State can perform orthopedic surgery to restore your comfort and mobility.

You might be a good candidate for back surgery if you have chronic back pain that interferes with your daily activities. To learn if surgery is a good option for you, Find a Doctor online to schedule an appointment for spine surgery consultation in Northern California.
