The latest techniques in lower back surgery are available at Tidewater Orthopaedics, where our fellowship-trained spine surgeon, Dr. Jonathan Mason, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a full range spinal conditions, including lumbar herniated discs, lumbar stenosis, lumbar spondylolisthesis, and degenerative scoliosis. For patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, and Newport News, Virginia, Dr. Mason offers comprehensive spinal care that incorporates the latest conservative approaches as well as minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Our mission at Tidewater Orthopaedics is to provide the most technically advanced, patient-centered spinal care delivered in a comfortable and welcoming setting. We understand that back pain can cause significant discomfort and interfere with a patient’s ability to work and enjoy everyday activities, so we offer comprehensive consultations in a timely fashion. Whether a patient requires surgery or conservative treatment, our goal is to provide effective relief as quickly and safely as possible.

Recent advances in diagnostic imaging and surgical techniques and equipment allow Dr. Mason to address certain spinal conditions through smaller incisions than those associated with traditional, highly invasive open spine surgery. The potential benefits of minimally invasive lower back surgery include:

  • Minimal disruption of soft tissue and damage to spinal muscles
  • Less blood loss
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Minimal scarring
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery

Dr. Mason performs lower back surgery at the Orthopaedic Hospital at Sentara CarePlex and CarePlex Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center, the only dedicated ambulatory surgery center in the Hampton Roads. Both of these outstanding facilities focus exclusively on providing orthopaedic care.
