Spinal injuries can result in a lot of different medical issues requiring spinal surgery, so it is important to hire a spinal surgery expert with a strong background in the details of your case. Spinal surgeons are often knowledgeable in additional branches of medicine as orthopedic surgeries, neurosurgeries, and other health-related disciplines.
Physicians working in spinal injuries include orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, as well as nurses and experts on rehabilitation. Spinal injuries and related health issues include spinal anomalies, spine tumors, spinal disorders, issues with cervical spines, traumatic spine injuries, neck pain, back pain, fractures, sports injuries, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, spine metastasis, trauma, lumbar spine issues, and degenerative disc disease.
There are several different types of spinal surgeries and procedures, including artificial disc replacement, scoliosis surgery, spinal fusion, endoscopic spinal surgery, surgical reconstruction, pediatric spinal surgery, complex cervical surgery, lumbar decompression, and spinal tumor surgery.
Similar to other disciplines within the medical field, lawsuits related to spinal issues are often a result of medical malpractice, insurance issues, misinformation provided to a patient regarding surgery or other types of treatments, or unforeseen negative side-effects, as well as issues with healthcare insurance.
Spinal surgery can be a complicated issue in terms of both the condition and form of treatment, making the selection of the proper expert a very important factor in the outcome of a court case.
