Spine surgery guide
If you need spine surgery, we’re committed to making sure your experiences are positive. The following information will help you prepare for your surgery and learn what to expect during the recovery period.
Before your surgery
Our office staff will work with your insurance company to authorize your procedure, and we’ll do our best to schedule your back surgery as quickly as possible. Depending on your age and your overall physical health, you may need to report to the hospital or your primary care physician for pre-surgical testing. This will help us keep you safe on the day of your surgery, and we’ll work with you to make sure you get the tests you need. Read more
After your surgery
After your spine surgery, Dr. Brisson and one of his physician assistants will visit you at the hospital to see how you’re feeling. We’ll also give you detailed instructions about recovery and be caring for your back as it is healing. Hospital staff members are responsible for planning your trip home, but we’re always available to help should complications or questions arise. Read more
