Sometimes, the surgeon will not remove the whole joint, but will only replace or fix the damaged parts.
Spine surgery is rarely an initial treatment for back pain, however, there are a few emergencies that may require surgical treatment. In the vast majority of patients, spine surgery is only considered after a long course of nonsurgical therapy.
