Back pain affects 80% of Americans

There are many types of conditions that cause back pain. Like most medical conditions, back pain is treatable through several methodologies. Determining what condition you have is the key to determining the right treatment option for you. Back pain comes in many forms. Lower back pain, middle back pain, and upper back pain are just a few of the symptoms associated with spinal conditions. You may also have pain or tingling in your extremities that may be indications of spinal conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

We participate in all major insurance plans.

It is better to see your primary care physician at the outset of your journey. He or she can order appropriate tests, which can help determine whether you need to see a neurosurgeon. We can accept patients without a referral in some instances.

We perform surgeries in state-of-the-art operating rooms at Research Medical Center and Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

After your initial appointment with your neurosurgeon for a head or brain treatment, we will schedule you for any additional, necessary tests. If you arrive with all the studies needed to diagnose the problem and surgery is indicated, your surgery can be scheduled usually within two to four weeks.

No, only a portion of our patients go on to surgery. After we establish a diagnosis, the physician will outline various treatment options. You and your physician will arrive at the best solution for your particular problem, which may require surgery, but may also respond to epidural steroid injections, physical therapy, or a “wait and watch” approach.
