Fortunately, here at North Carolina Specialty Hospital, treating back pain is something that we help patients with every day. Unless it is an emergency requiring immediate surgery for back pain, we’ll first recommend treatment combinations of rest, ice, heat, spinal injections, physical therapy, over-the-counter pain medication, diet, or exercise to help manage and reduce your pain.

If that happens to you and surgery for back pain is recommended, don’t worry. You can relax knowing your North Carolina Specialty Hospital orthopedic doctors are board-certified experts who use the latest technology (including robotics) and specialized spinal instrumentation to treat cervical, thoracic, and lumbar disorders.
At North Carolina Specialty Hospital, we know that each patient’s situation, needs, and way of life are unique and require a tailored, individualized approach. We offer back surgery options to treat the most and least common causes of severe back pain. Back surgeries performed include:
