About Our Practice
Orthopaedics spine specialists
The spine serves two major functions: 1) It is the foundation of mobility and strength and 2) It also serves to protect the communication structures of the body, the spinal cord and corresponding nerves. Back and neck pain including loss of function occur in about 80% of the population. This is a staggering number of people throughout the world. At Clarksville Medical Specialists, Dr. John Friedland, M.D., an Orthopaedic spine surgeon, is highly trained in straightforward and complex spinal procedures, both with and without implants. Additionally, in conjunction with Gateway Medical Center, several other physicans are dedicated to non-operative spinal disease diagnosis and care.
Cervical and lumbar spine surgery
Neck pain, backache, pinched nerves and sciatica (stenosis) can all take their toll on our everyday lives. Fortunately, many new procedures are constantly being developed to help us alleviate pain and unnecessary suffering from spinal disease. Spinal surgery is evolving in its ability to meet the demands of a more active, older population as well as younger patients. Minimally invasive surgery, disc replacements, decompressions and even spinal fusions can all play varying roles in helping achieve a better quality life.
Non-operative spine care
For most of us, facing any surgical procedure, general anesthesia, short or long hospital stays, and post-operative pain are frightening. Luckily, better imaging techniques, diagnostic tests and improved, focused therapy, which includes comprehensive rehabilitation programs, make it possible to relieve many orthopaedic spine and neurologic problems without surgery. We emphasize holistic care and strive to reduce medication usage and maximize rehabilitative approaches—including non-surgical approaches—to orthopaedic problems.
