Back Pain Surgery Options for Patients Who Need Relief in Hampton, Williamsburg, or Newport News, VA

The fellowship-trained (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) spine surgeon at Tidewater Orthopaedics, Dr. Jonathan Mason, performs the latest techniques in back pain surgery for patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News, Virginia. Dr. Mason focuses his practice exclusively on the diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions, including herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis (narrowing), and degenerative scoliosis. As a highly experienced orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Mason offers a full range of spinal care, including effective, non-surgical techniques and advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Dr. Maloof is a spine surgeon who is well respected throughout Hampton Roads and beyond. His treatment philosophy is to recommend the most conservative approach that is appropriate for a patient, reserving surgery as a last resort. At Tidewater Orthopaedics, we understand that a patient’s decision to pursue surgery for back pain does not come easily – nor should it. Rather, it is usually reached only after a patient continues to experience significant discomfort and reduced quality of life after attempting several forms of non-surgical treatment, such as medications, hot/cold therapy, and exercise.

Patients who elect to undergo spine surgery at Tidewater Orthopaedics are in good hands with Dr. Mason, who is often able to address spinal conditions through small incisions. Some potential benefits of minimally invasive back pain surgery include:

  • Marginal disruption to surrounding tissue
  • No muscle dissection
  • Low risk of infection
  • Minimal scarring
  • Relatively quick recovery

Dr. Mason performs surgery at the Orthopaedic Hospital at Sentara CarePlex and CarePlex Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center. Both of these facilities have excellent reputations and are dedicated to providing outstanding orthopaedic care.
