If you suffer from neck or back pain and conventional treatment methods haven’t worked, your pain may be caused by an underlying spinal condition. For an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment, you should see a doctor who specializes in disorders of the spine.
Dr. Matthew Goldstein and Dr. Derek Ju are orthopedic surgeons who specialize in spine surgery. Both surgeons are fellowship-trained, which means they have received the most advanced training in the spinal surgeries.
Our spine doctors diagnose and treat a spectrum of back and neck conditions, including:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar and cervical disc herniations
- Spinal stenosis
- Spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae)
- Spondylolysis (stress fracture of the spine)
- Neuropathy (nerve pain)
- Pediatric scoliosis and adult scoliosis
Surgery may be necessary depending on your condition, but OAM physicians believe in exhausting all nonsurgical forms of treatment, such as physical therapy and pain management procedures, before making this decision.
If you do need surgery, Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Ju are highly skilled in the latest, most advanced surgical techniques, including these minimally invasive procedures:
- Spinal lumbar fusion
- Artificial lumbar disc replacement
- Artificial cervical disc replacement
- Minimally invasive lateral access spine surgery
- Minimally invasive posterior fusion spine surgery
- lumbar microdiscectomy
- Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF)
- Anterior lumbar interbody fusion
- Minimally invasive laminectomy/decompression
Having a spine disorder can be frustrating and stressful. One of the best ways to alleviate any fears you may have regarding your condition or treatment is to first understand your disorder, beginning with the symptoms. At Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset, our doctors will guide you through this process. They understand the importance of patient education and will help explain your condition to you, as well as the best treatment options available.
