Find the Freedom To Move Without Pain

Most adults experience back pain during their lifetimes — as many as 8 in 10 Americans, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). Treatments and medications often only mask the pain, but our spine care at AdventHealth Apopka is different. We provide treatment for spine and back issues based on evidence-based research to target the cause of the pain using an individualized combination of physical therapy, pain management, pain psychiatry and minimally invasive surgery when needed.

We’re here to help you find the right spine expert or a location that’s convenient for you.

Spine Care Coordinators

From the moment you contact us, our spine care coordinators will walk you and your family through each step of the treatment process from scheduling an appointment to returning home after surgery. They provide the following services:

  • Educate you on diagnosis, treatment and rehab options
  • Facilitate scheduling of additional testing as needed
  • Coordination of scheduling and treatment
  • Communication with referring physicians
  • Refer you to appropriate provider based upon your individual circumstances
  • Navigation of patient through surgical process (if applicable)
  • Follow-up after discharge from hospital

  • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)

    ALIF procedures approach the spine from the front (anterior) of the body to remove all or part of a herniated disc from between two adjacent vertebrae (interbody) in the lower back (lumbar spine). The vertebrae on either side of the remaining disc space are then fused together using a bone graft or bone graft substitute.

  • Discectomy

    A discectomy is a spinal surgery to remove all or a part of an intervertebral disc.

  • Epidural Steroid Injection

    An epidural injection delivers steroids directly into the epidural space in the spine, where the steroids function as a potent anti-inflammatory. By using live X-ray imaging, your provider can inject the medication close to the site of the pain.

  • Extreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF)

    XLIF is a minimally invasive procedure performed through the side of the body to treat spinal disorders and reduce long-term back or leg pain that has not responded to other treatments, such as steroid injections, physical therapy or pain medication.

  • Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty

    Like vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty is ideal for patients with spinal compression fractures. Kyphoplasty can potentially restore bone height in the vertebra and reverse a spine deformity. We offer both treatments, allowing specialists to choose the correct option for each patient. As in vertebroplasty, a patient undergoing kyphoplasty lies face down.

  • Laminectomy

    Laminectomy, also called decompression, is a procedure that removes the lamina, which is the part of the vertebra covering your spinal canal. Laminectomy enlarges the canal, relieving pressure on the spinal cord or nerves caused by a narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis).
