For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted nonsurgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the next step in resolving a spine problem. Because spine surgery is a serious decision, it is a good idea to obtain a second opinion.

A second opinion from Kenai Spine can provide you the following benefits: dr craig humphreys treatment for back pain neck pain kenai alaska

  • Determine if you have considered all possible treatment options and if there are any other nonsurgical options can relieve symptoms without the need for surgery.

  • If spine surgery is necessary, what type of spine surgery should be performed. You many not need a complex fusion procedure that was initially recommended.

  • Are you a candidate for new artificial disc technology that would provide a better outcome.

  • Do you qualify for minimally invasive spine surgery in day surgery, and be home later that same afternoon, for a faster recovery and return to activity.

  • Could you benefit from a second opinion? And is it worth the time and expense to travel to a spine center?
