It comes as little surprise that with age comes back pain. But does age influence the potential for back surgery complications?
According to a 2008 study available through the US National Library of Medicine, research results indicate that the rate of complications after minimally invasive spinal surgery is as low in the elderly as it is in the younger population. Something the specialists at Gulfcoast Spine Institute have a great deal of experience with.
Doctors Bono and Ronzo are part of the Healthgrades 5-star spine surgery program at Citrus Memorial Hospital but you can consult with them locally at their Villages office.
