Dr. Lingutla believes that selecting the right spine surgeon is essential for patients to have the best chance at achieving pain relief, maximizing outcomes and minimizing potential complications. But even before thinking to undergo spine surgery, patients have to become completely sure that an accurate diagnosis of their spine problem is made and that surgery is the only option for them. This is because spine surgery can only address an anatomical problem but if the underlying cause of your pain is not addressed correctly, surgery even if done may not be useful. Therefore, finding an expert spine surgeon who will help you address all these questions is a key to correct diagnosis and a successful spine surgery. If you are suffering from back pain, neck pain or have been advised a back surgery and searching for a spine specialist in Hyderabad who will not only diagnose your spine problems correctly but offer you the best treatment modality, you are at right place.

Even if two patients have same spine disorder, their treatment needs are quite unique. It is the role of spine surgeon to understand this and customize the management plan accordingly’ says Dr. Lingutla. It is this philosophy of personalized care that differentiates Dr. Lingutla and his team from others.
