Consider consulting with a doctor at ORA Orthopedics if you live in Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, or another community in the Quad Cities and chronic back pain is preventing you from participating in the activities you enjoy.
Spinal fusion surgery is performed to stop harmful motion in a damaged area of the spine. During the procedure, a bone graft is used to fuse two vertebral segments together and limit twisting motions that can exacerbate injuries and subsequent pain. Potential candidates for this surgery include patients with degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, or spinal instability resulting from a fracture or infection.
ORA Orthopedics is the largest and most advanced orthopedic practice in the Quad Cities. Our doctors, physical therapists, and other specialists take a personalized approach to your care and provide compassionate service. As our patient, rest assured your ORA doctor will help you evaluate all of your treatment options so that you can make a confident decision regarding your spinal care. We understand that the prospect of surgery can be overwhelming. We will address all of your concerns before deciding on a course of treatment.
