Spine Surgery - What it is

The Spine

The spine is often called the ‘backbone’. It supports your head and upper body and protects your spinal cord and nerves. Back and leg pain are likely caused by spinal nerves pinched by:

  • Herniated or ‘slipped’ disc
  • Changes in the shape of the vertebrae by some orthopaedic conditions.

Your doctor will explain to you what causes your back pain and the need for surgery to relieve the pain and discomfort.
