Excellence in Spine Surgery Backed by Years of Experience.
Given the serious nature of Spine Surgery, all options should be evaluated prior to pursuing operative treatment. However, when surgery is required, trust your care to a physician who has had more than 50,000 patient visits and performed more than 5,000 spine surgeries.
Hear and read true stories of my patients and their experiences with Beacon Orthopaedics and Spine. You don't have to live with back pain. Often times active adults return to even higher activity levels after a full recovery.

- Placeholder Question?
Back pain although very common (up to 90% of the general population will have an episode of back pain in their life is not normal. Back soreness that can be seen with overuse (feeling of soreness) usually goes away fairly quickly. Back pain that does not go away within a few weeks usually needs treatment including medication, therapy, or injections. If someone has radiating pain, weakness, or loss of function this could be a sign of something more severe.
- Placeholder Question?
The origin of spinal pain can be degenerative, traumatic, neoplastic or metabolic, with vast majority being degenerative and traumatic. Most low back pain follows injury or trauma to the back. Obesity, smoking, weight gain during pregnancy, stress, poor physical condition, posture inappropriate for the activity being performed, and poor sleeping position also may contribute to low back pain.
