Spine Fracture Surgery
Spine fracture surgery repairs broken bones, or vertebrae,
in the spine that may be caused by osteoporosis, trauma to the back or neck, or
a tumor that starts in the spine or spreads to the area.
Surgery may be recommended if the pain is severe or
disabling, has lasted for more than two months, and has not improved with other
Depending on the type of spine surgery, you will be placed
under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, and you may need to wear a back
brace for several weeks.
