Complex Spine Surgery

Surgeons at Inland Neurosurgery and Spine provide comprehensive care for patients with complex spine disorders. This resource, centered at the advanced medical campus at Sacred Heart Medical Center, is unique in the region.

Complex spine disorders affect many people. These spine disorders include:

These disorders may cause pain, numbness, or weakness from compression on nerves or tension on the spinal cord, and may cause‚Äč muscle fatigue as the body tries to compensate for the spinal abnormality. If progressive or severe enough, these conditions can affect many parts of life, may compromise lung function, and can affect the ability to walk or perform daily activities.


Complex spinal disorders may be helped with surgery. Whether or not surgery is appropriate, and which type of surgical intervention is best, is a decision that we tailor to each individual patient.

Our surgeons meet with patients to discuss their symptoms, perform a neurological examination, review imaging such as x-rays, MRI and CT scans, and consider options for treatment. Our surgeons recommend conservative options when possible. If surgery is a good option, our surgeons are skilled at performing these procedures with the most current and advanced methods and technology.

Surgery is performed at Sacred Heart Medical Center by our highly skilled team of surgeons. We follow protocols to maximize the safety of each procedure, including advanced intraoperative imaging and navigation technology. Patients who undergo surgery for complex spinal disorders may require rehabilitation services as they recover and we coordinate this care to assure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Our goal is to provide the best possible outcome for patients with complex spinal disorders. Successful surgery and recovery leads to less pain, less neurological symptoms, and better functional status in daily life. To accomplish these goals we team with you in addressing your complex spinal disorder.
