What type of surgeon is best for back surgery?

Fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons are equally qualified.

However, the main difference is in training. A neurosurgeon is trained to treat conditions of the brain and spine, while an orthopedic spine surgeon specializes in treating the spine.

Is back surgery high-risk surgery?

Any time surgery is done on the spine, there is some risk of injuring the spinal cord or the individual nerves.

This can occur from instruments used during surgery, from swelling, or from scar formation after surgery. Damage to the spinal cord can cause paralysis in certain areas and not others.
