For those who suffer from back and neck pain and have exhausted non-surgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the next step in resolving a spine condition. Because spine surgery is a serious decision, it’s a good idea to request a second opinion.

A second opinion from the Reno neurosurgeons at Swift Institute can provide you the following benefits:

  • Determine if you have considered all possible treatment options and if there are any other non-surgical options to relieve symptoms without the need for surgery.

  • If spine surgery is necessary, what type of spine surgery should be performed. You may 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 performed in an ASC, that would allow you to 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?

Complete the web form below. After learning of your condition, the spine specialists at Swift Institute can advise you if a second opinion would be helpful.
