Preparing for Your Spine Surgery

Learn what to expect before, during, and after your surgery by attending our pre-surgery spine class. It’s only 13 minutes long and can help you feel ready.

Understanding what to expect before, during, and after your spine surgery is vital to your recovery and long term success. Our pre-surgery spine class video outlines how to prepare your home prior to surgery, describes how you will spend your time while hospitalized, and gives guidelines for recuperating at home and managing post-surgical symptoms.

As always, if you have any questions about your upcoming surgery, please contact your surgeon or hospital spine coordinator.
