Duke spine doctors use advanced technologies to diagnose and treat your spine condition. Often, nonsurgical treatments are effective in treating back pain and getting you back to the activities you enjoy. When spine doctors identify something physically wrong with your anatomy -- a spinal deformity, bulging disc, or spine fracture -- spine surgery may be necessary.

Our spine surgeons perform disc replacement to relieve pain, complex reconstructive surgeries for scoliosis, procedures to remove delicate spinal cancer lesions, and more.
