Back or spine injuries are the most common musculoskeletal problems. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, 8 out of 10 people will experience back pain at some point in their lives.

The spine is a complex structure of vertebra, disks, spinal cord and nerves. Dr. Tony Tannoury, our orthopaedic spine surgeon, is a fellowship-trained surgeon with experience in all adult spine conditions.
