Why choose Henrico Doctors' Hospital for spine care?
No two spines are the same, so our spine specialists provide individualized treatment from diagnosis through recovery. We use advanced imaging modalities to find the exact cause of your neck or back pain and emphasize conservative approaches to care, such as physical therapy or injections, before recommending spine surgery.
Spine surgery requires a high degree of skill and precision, and the spine experts at our hospital have been through extensive training in spinal conditions and have performed and assisted in many different types of spine surgeries. All of our spine specialists use the latest technology, including digital biplane angiography (or 3DRA) to precisely target and help deliver treatment for spinal problems.
Minimally invasive spine surgery
With minimally invasive spine surgery, many patients are able to go home soon after surgery, sometimes even the same day. We offer minimally invasive procedures to treat a range of spinal conditions, including:
- Cervical, thoracic and lumbar herniated discs
- Decompression procedures for cervical, thoracic and lumbar stenosis
- Spinal fusion
- Artificial cervical disk spinal surgery

When to seek help for your neck or back pain
The spine is a very complex structure that provides vital support for mobility and strength to the body. A healthy neck and back allow for fluid movement, but, when there is a deformity, injury or disease of the spine, common activities, such as turning, bending or stretching, may become painful.
Most back pain will begin to improve within a day or two of restricted activity or over-the-counter medication. If you find yourself taking medication repeatedly or over an extended period of time to relieve back or neck pain, you should see one of our spine specialists. Our primary care physicians can help determine which type of spine specialist is right for you, a neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon.
