Spinal surgery includes the surgical treatment of all disease patterns of the spine. However, in about 90% of patients with back problems, there is no need for surgical treatment. It is part of the spinal surgeon's job to identify patients for whom spinal surgery is necessary or advisable and to advise them accordingly. For degenerative spinal conditions, possible surgery is usually at the very end of the treatment chain. However, there are a few situations where surgery is needed quickly to avoid secondary damage, such as paralysis and unstable fractures.
