Spondylolisthesis is literally a “slipping of one vertebra on another”. Most patients experience some back pain. Many patients also experience radiating leg pain, numbness, and muscle weakness resulting from nerve compression by the slipping vertebra.

Spondylolisthesis Treatment Options

We specialize in the treatment of Spondylolisthesis. The best treatment for spondylolisthesis depends on multiple factors including the type of Spondylolisthesis, nerve involvement, and the duration and severity of symptoms. Our approach is to customize the treatment plan to each patient’s unique circumstances. Most patients are successfully treated without surgery. In many cases, however, surgery that relieves nerve compression and stabilizes slipping vertebra results in rapid and dramatic relief of back and leg symptoms.
