FAQs

What causes back pain?

 

There are several potential causes of back pain, including injury, damaged discs, arthritis, osteoporosis, and muscle or ligament strain. Working with a skilled orthopedic surgeon can help you discover the cause and your best course of action.

When is back pain serious?

 

Like most other pains, back pain typically goes away on its own with home treatment. If back pain persists for more than two weeks, it likely needs professional attention. You should also see a spine specialist if the pain is particularly severe or is keeping you from completing basic daily activities.

When does back pain require surgery?

 

Dr. Mathur is experienced in recognizing when more advanced procedures are required. Some causes of back pain require surgical treatment. Additionally, if the back pain won’t respond to more conservative treatments, surgery is likely needed.

Where should I have back surgery?

 

Many minimally invasive surgical treatments can be performed in one of our offices or outpatient surgical centers. More involved procedures will need to be completed in a hospital setting.

How should I sleep after back surgery?

 

In most cases, back surgery does not limit sleeping position options. However, choosing a more supportive position may help in recovery. Sleeping on your side with a pillow between the legs, or sleeping on your back with a pillow under your knee are both excellent choices. We generally do not recommend sleeping on your stomach because of increased pressure placed on the lower back.

What downtime should I expect?

 

Though downtime from back surgery varies depending on the procedure, most treatments we offer are performed on an outpatient basis.

Many of our patients are able to return to regular activity after just a few days. Other patients may need months to recover fully. Dr. Mathur will give you an idea of what kind of downtime you can expect at your consultation.
