Many of us experience
neck and back pain that often goes away on its own or with little treatment. But there are
certain symptoms that indicate it’s time to seek a spine specialist.
pain that affects the activities of daily living, makes walking or using the
arms difficult, or comes on very suddenly may require the attention of
a spine specialist.
- Neck, back, arm, leg pain and/or weakness that lasts several weeks or months
should also be addressed by a specialist.
James Ulibarri, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in surgery
of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, including degenerative disease,
trauma and tumors. He has recently joined spine surgeon
Nathan Simpson, MD, and the other orthopedic surgeons at
Powder River Orthopedics & Spine (PROS) in Gillette, Wyoming.
Dr. Ulibarri tries numerous conservative, non-surgical treatments before
recommending surgery. When surgery is the best option, most people are
surprised when they learn they can usually go home the same day or the
day after. New technologies and smaller incisions used in minimally-invasive
surgeries mean a quicker recovery and a faster return to everyday activities.
