Spinal Surgery

There once was a time when having spinal surgery meant facing months of a slow and painful recovery. 


Now, you have a choice that can mean less pain and muscle damage, as well as a shorter hospital stay, minimal scarring and a quicker recovery. Using a few, small incisions, Baystate Medical Center’s experienced neurosurgeons are performing advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures for a variety of complex spine problems. 


These include:


  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal fractures
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Tumors


Our neurosurgeons are also performing minimally invasive spinal fusions and less invasive procedures for spinal stenosis, such as the X-Stop. If you need spinal surgery, ask to have your surgery performed at Baystate Medical Center. 


For more information or a referral to a Baystate neurosurgeon, please ask your doctor or call 413-794-2255.
