To patients suffering from spinal conditions, we provide
Recovery from something as significant as spine surgery doesn’t just happen—it’s achieved.
There is a way back.
The Better Way Back champions the journey back to health by sharing patient stories and information on spinal conditions and treatment options that can help empower patients to make educated decision alongside their care team. Our recovered patients, called patient ambassadors, volunteer their time to share the modern, evolving story of life after back surgery.
We offer information on common spinal conditions and treatment options to help empower patients to make educated decisions alongside their care team.
We provide patients considering spine surgery a safe space to connect with and learn from patients who have previously undergone a spine procedure.
One of the most important decisions for patients considering surgery is selecting the right doctor. Our surgeon locator can help.
“If you stick with it and believe in yourself… you can get to where you need to be.”
“When my sciatic pain started, it was very humbling. I realized I wasn’t ten feet tall and bullet proof.”
“I’ve had remarkable results! All my pain went away… I’m dancing again!”
“When I woke up from surgery, I thought I’d made a big mistake. But the next day, it went away for the most part… Now I get to feel young again, to some extent.”
“I’m doing so well you can’t catch me at home anymore! I feel like I was reborn! I go carefully, but I go, go, go! I’m so glad I didn’t concede to ‘just getting old.”
