When to refer patients for specialized spinal care
Do you suspect your patients with back or neck pain may have a serious undiagnosed condition of the spine beyond your area of expertise and may require surgery? Patients initially seek help due to extreme spinal pain. Arm, leg, neck or back pain that is associated with the spinal pain sometimes makes the condition worse. Most patients describe symptoms of numbness, weakness or tingling with pain in any of the four areas shown or radiating pain down the back or legs.
Always refer to fellowship trained and board-certified spine specialists
Regardless of whether you refer to an orthopaedic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon, you should always recommend a fellowship trained and board-certified specialist who has additional training and a high level of expertise in their sub-specialty.
