Spine Surgery

Georgia Brain & Spine Center specializes in the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of spine disease. Spine surgery includes the treatment of neck and lower back disease. These conditions are often due to degeneration of the spine (wear and tear over time), but at times they can be due to trauma, infection, or tumor. A detailed evaluation and treatment by a spine neurosurgeon is the key to a correct diagnosis and good treatment outcomes.

We strongly believe that the majority of patients with spine problems can be successfully treated without surgery. We will always first use non-surgical treatments, including exercise, stretching, physical therapy, stress reduction, behavior modification, and pain management techniques. Only if such treatments fail do we consider surgery. If surgery is indicated, Dr. Dagnew demonstrates expertise and experience in treating all aspects of spine disease. He uses the latest, proven, minimally invasive techniques to achieve success in pain relief as well as a quick recovery and return to an active life.
