Piedmont Orthopaedic Complex offers patients conservative options for effective spine care. Not all pain requires a lifetime medication prescription, and not all patients require surgery. According to Piedmont's own historical data, less than 7% of spine patients required surgery. The vast majority of our spine patients are able to eliminate or alleviate pain and return to their normal lives without spine surgery or a long-term pain medication prescription.
