Adult Spine Surgery

Back and neck  pain affects more than 90% of Americans at some point in their lives. Let the caring specialists at Tulane Spine Center help start you on your way to a better back and neck. At Tulane, we reserve surgery as a last resort, we’ll first try to provide pain relief through conservative treatments such as physical therapy and pain management.  We work closely with the patient, physical therapy, and pain management to devise the most successful treatment plan to get patients back to a pain-free lifestyle.

If non-surgical treatment does not relieve your pain, then you may be a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery. We utilize the latest operative treatments including motion-preserving surgical techniques such as cervical disc replacement and laminoplasty instead of cervical spinal fusion. For complex spinal deformities, we use CT navigated computer systems to accurately place screws. At the Tulane Spine Center, we specialize in the management of all spine conditions including cervical, thoracic, and lumbar.
