So You’re Ready for Back Surgery…Not What? 

For patients who have already determined with their doctor that back surgery is the correct option for their health journey, you may be a patient who has pushed off this form of care because the next steps could be clearer. 

Patients who are diagnosed with a serious back condition may encounter conservative therapies and treatments before surgery is on the table. When a doctor recommends back surgery, patients look for the right options to help them get started on the right track. 

Pricing & Accessibility 

Affordable back surgery is essential for ensuring that individuals needing treatment can access the care they require without facing financial hardship. The affordability of these procedures directly impacts a patient’s ability to seek timely and effective medical intervention for their spinal conditions. Whether that means you are looking for a lumbar fusion or an anterior cervical discectomy, you should have access to pricing for these costs. 

But the problem with the majority of surgical procedures is that you have to reach out to learn more about pricing after you get the process of appointments started, rather than understand the cost upfront. 

Price Transparency 

Beyond general estimates of cost, do you know what your price will be for a vagal nerve stimulator procedure if you have insurance or without? Even with insurance, doctors cannot discuss pricing because they are not the ones with specifics on pricing. Instead, your insurance must process the medical claim and then provide pricing. 

This can feel frustrating for some patients who are trying to budget or mitigate costs for their procedure. 

Quality of Doctors 

The quality of your doctors can range dramatically depending on where you are located. A quality surgeon is defined by a combination of knowledge, skill, experience, and compassion. Firstly, a top-notch surgeon must possess a deep understanding of human anatomy and physiology, with a thorough grasp of the latest medical research and techniques in their specialty. 

Additionally, they must demonstrate exceptional technical proficiency and dexterity in the operating room to perform complex procedures with precision.

Back pain can be debilitating, and for patients who are looking for spinal surgery, Smith Medical Direct Specialty Care is the answer.
