We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
While most cases of back pain can be successfully treated with non-surgical options, some conditions may require surgery. Some of the diagnoses that may need surgery include:
Myelopathy and Stenosis
Degenerative Disc Disease
Spinal Cord Compression
Board-certified spine surgeons at the Hilton Head Hospital Spine Center work with a specialized team of physicians to determine the best surgical treatment options for the patient. Surgical options may include:
Robotic-assisted spine surgery using Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ (Hyperlink this bullet point to click to the Globus page below with more information)
Laminectomy/Discectomy: a procedure in which part of the lamina is removed, as well as a portion of a ligament. The herniated disc is then removed.
Microdiscectomy: similar to a discectomy, but using a smaller injection.
Lumbar Spinal Fusion: when two or more vertebra are joined together using bone grafts, screws and rods.
