Back pain at any level can be disabling, preventing you from doing some of the most basic, everyday tasks.

    Non-Surgical Pain Management
    Most patients who come to us with back pain are able to return to their full health with the use of non-surgical treatments and physical therapy.

    Minimally Invasive Procedures
    Littleton Adventist Hospital's state-of-the-art surgical equipment allows our expert staff to treat several spine conditions through minimally invasive procedures. Because these types of procedures require smaller incisions causing less damage to surrounding muscle tissue, healing time, along with hospital stay are reduced. These simple procedures are cost-effective, result in less postoperative pain and cause fewer muscle spasms.

    If you are diagnosed with one of several spine conditions treatable with a minimally invasive procedure, our skilled surgeons and compassionate staff will have you back to your full health - doing the things you love - in just a short amount of time.

    Major Surgery

    While many spine ailments can be corrected with a simple procedure, some do require a major surgery. Conditions such as major spine deformity, extensive trauma, infection or spinal tumors must be treated with open surgery. Littleton Adventist Hospital is prepared with the proper equipment, facilities and rehabilitation services to provide patients having major surgery with the best possible outcome and recovery.
