Spine Surgery ChatWhen Should You Consider Spine Surgery? | Dr. Scott Boden | Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center

The thought of having spine surgery can be frightening. The good news is that less than 10% of patients who experience back or neck problems are candidates for surgery. At Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center, our team of highly-trained spine specialists work together to diagnose and treat cervical spine and lumbar spine conditions ranging from herniated discs to more complex problems such as spinal tumors and scoliosis. 

Have you been told you need spine surgery? It is important to have the proper information before electing to have spine surgery. On Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. EST, join Scott Boden, MD, director of the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center, for an interactive web chat. Dr. Boden will be available to answer questions for those considering spine surgery.
