Do you have a question?
How long will I be in the hospital after surgery?
Most patients will go home the same day following spinal surgery. Sometimes, due to the nature of specific procedures or a patient’s particular medical issues, we may ask a patient to spend the night in the hospital. On a rare occasion, a patient may spend 2 or more days in the hospital before going home.
Who will prescribe pain medication postoperatively?
We will coordinate with you and your primary care provider or pain specialist so that you get appropriate postoperative medication. In many instances we will
prescribe medication for up to a month after surgery. After this you will get further medication from your primary care provider or pain specialist.
