Dr. Anita Cone-Sullivan from Resurgens Spine CenterQ: I am having spinal surgery and I’m worried about the recovery time. Are there any short cuts to getting back on my feet?

A: Generally speaking, spinal surgeries vary in recovery time. The keys to a speedy recovery are following your physician’s orders during the post-op period and participating in a rehabilitation program tailored to your specific needs. If you try to take short cuts to getting back on your feet sooner than advised, you may find it to be detrimental in the short and long term, and it could potentially negate the positive effects from the surgery.
