Dr. Kelley's message to patients: Low back pain, neck pain, or some other problem arising from the spine will affect the majority of us at some point in our lives. These ailments can cause significant pain and lead to a decrease in physical function and quality of life. Many of these problems can be managed without surgery, and I believe that in most situations these nonsurgical treatments should be attempted prior to surgery. However, when these other methods fail, surgery can be the best approach for relieving pain and increasing physical function. I also believe that when the time for surgery presents, most procedures can be done in a minimally invasive fashion. Minimally invasive surgery decreases postoperative pain, blood loss, and the time that patients remain in the hospital. Many surgeries can now be performed through an incision that is 14 to 16mm in length, which is less than the distance measured across a penny. In addition, I feel that as a spine surgeon, I am obligated to provide excellent medical treatment and to treat all patients with a high level of respect and care.
