Spinal Surgery - Food for Thought
I’m Dr. Mark Wolgin, an orthopedic surgeon in Albany, GA. Many non-surgical treatment options are typically available for issues concerning the neck and spine. Even concerns like a herniated disc can often be successfully treated by non-surgical methods. I specialize in orthopedic surgery (spine surgery and neck surgery) as well as surgery for the foot and ankle. I am a am a spine surgeon but I always review alternative treatments with my patients.
Patients Treated as I Would Want to be Treated
When a new patient comes to me with back pain or neck pain I treat them as I would want to be treated. I start with a non-operative approach whenever possible, offering surgical care only when needed. If surgery is necessary I have a focus on minimally invasive techniques, where the surgery is done through small tubular retractors, without big incisions. Of course any treatment option will depend on the needs of the particular patient. The patient or an authorized family member will always have final control over treatment decisions.
