Have you been suffering from serious spinal issues lately? If yes and also if you want to ensure your surgical operation goes well- here are 5 tips that you will have to follow before spine surgery.

People want their surgery to go smooth, but sometimes they incorrectly assume that the doctor will single-handedly make it happen. An experienced surgeon is crucial to the success of your non-fusion spine surgery, but you too play a big role in whether or not you experience the best results. Today, we share five tips that will make up for a successful spine surgery.

5 Ways To Prepare For Back Surgery

Here are five tips to remember before you head in for your surgery/robotic spine surgery.

1. Ask Questions – Doctors are always up to answer to patients questions related to their condition. It shows the doctor that the patient is looking forward to have a successful operation and treating their condition properly. If you get answers to your questions, you’ll feel more confident heading into surgery.

2. Healthy Diet – Don’t eat a lot of unhealthy food in the days leading up to an operation. Your body will want to have a healthy amount of vitamins and nutrients in the days and weeks leading up to your operation. Also, since your spine shoulders a lot of your weight when you move and walk, if you gain weight leading up to your operation, your back is going to be over-burdened.

3. Exercise – This may not be all that easy depending on the type of spinal operation you’re about to undergo, but exercise and strength training can help build muscles and other structures that will offer  support and will prepare your spine for the operation.

4. Be An Open Book – During your pre-surgical consultation, act like an open book. A doctor isn’t there to judge, they just want to know about your daily habits and health history so that they can best prepare for surgical treatment.

5. Pre-Surgical Instructions – Your neurosurgeon Tampa Florida is going to give you some pre-surgical instructions on what you should do in the 24-48 hours leading up to surgery. Follow those instructions. Do not eat or drink or take medications after the listed time frame.
