Lawrence Spine Care

Spine surgery excellence

For many people with spine disorders or nerve damage, the pain can be unbearable. Depending on the condition, different areas of the body can be affected, including the neck, back, arms and legs. If the pain of a spine disorder keeps you from living the life you love, turn to Lawrence Spine Care for help. Spine surgeon David Fritz, MD, board certified in neurosurgery, will diagnose the source of your pain to determine if spine surgery is the right course of treatment for you.

When surgical treatment is recommended, rest assured you will receive high quality surgical care at Lawrence Spine Care – before, during and after your procedure. With more than 20 years of spine surgery expertise, Dr. Fritz specializes in minimally invasive procedures that offer many benefits for patients, including shorter hospital stays and less pain throughout the healing process. He has extensive experience treating adult disorders of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, including:

Spine Surgery Procedures

Depending on your diagnosis, one of the following spine procedures may be recommended:

Of course, spine surgery is not right for everyone. Many painful neck and back conditions can be treated non-surgically with conservative measures like physical therapy, pain management, injections and other non-invasive treatments and procedures. After completing your physical exam and looking at your imaging studies (in most cases, an MRI or CT scan will be required), if we determine you may benefit more from a non-surgical procedure, our team will work closely with you to make sure you are informed about all your options and resources for non-surgical care.

We also work closely with primary care providers to ensure collaborative, attentive pre- and post-op care for every patient. When we treat someone at Lawrence Spine Care, we treat the whole patient – not just the MRI. Only after we’ve conducted a thorough physical exam can we determine what’s best for each patient, so taking the time to talk to and examine each patient is key to the personalized care we deliver.
