Almost all of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. In most cases, back pain will get better without medical treatment, but some symptoms should prompt you to set up an appointment with a Summit spine specialist.

When this motion causes severe pain and inability to function that can’t be eased by conservative treatments, spine fusion surgery may be considered.

I was 29 years old and had back pain for years. I started having severe sciatic pain that eventually became constant. I was unable to do any of the activities I love and was having to miss work. Dr. Wills did my surgery and when I woke up all the sciatic pain was gone. It was amazing! Dr. Wills even called the morning after surgery to check on me. From start to finish I had nothing but great care from the Summit team. It's been 10 months since my surgery and I'm pain free. Thanks Dr. Wills and his team for giving me my life back.Read this patient story Find more stories
