Back Surgery Options

When a back condition does not respond to other therapies, back surgery may be needed. Some procedures may be performed in a doctor’s office while others may be done in a hospital setting.

When back surgery is needed, you’ll benefit from being in the hands of skilled surgeons and PinnacleHealth clinical staff. PinnacleHealth performs more than 1,600 inpatient back and spine procedures each year and offer a full range of services, from diagnostic testing to surgery, to rehabilitation following spinal surgery.

We’ll continue your care after your back surgery as well, should you need inpatient rehabilitation, home-based services or outpatient physical therapy to help you return to a pain-free life. Being a patient with PinnacleHealth, the area’s healthcare leader, also means that you have access to the most innovative surgical advances, including:

  • Artificial Surgical Disc Surgery - Intervertebral discs act as cushions between vertebrae. Age, injury, or disease can cause damage in these discs.This damage to the discs can cause chronic pain and limited mobility which may require disc surgery.

  • Spinal Fusion Surgery - The spine surgeons at PinnacleHealth Spine Institute use advanced minimally invasive techniques to perform spinal fusion surgery.


  • Cervical Spinal Fusion Surgery - This spine surgery permanently joins vertebrae together from which the joined vertebrae grow into a single bone.

  • Kyphoplasty - This is a minimally invasive procedure treats spine fractures caused by osteoporosis. The procedure provides fast back pain relief and helps straighten out the spine.

  • Laminectomy - This is performed through an incision on the lower back where the Lamina is removed. This relieves pressure on the nerve roots.

  • Laminotomy/Discectomy/Foraminotomy - Minimal Invasive practices are used for these pain relieving procedures. 

  • Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery - This treatment is used to relieve pain caused by degenerative disc disease and can be performed endoscopically.

  • Robotic & Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery - PinnacleHealth offers state-of-the-art technologies for the treatment of spinal conditions including the da Vinci Si Robotic Surgical System.
