Get info on Spine Surgery in Atalanta from Dr. Erik T Bendiks, M.D.

Are you needing a second opinion or consult on spine surgery in Atlanta? Dr. Erik T. Bendiks, M.D. can help you with that. He is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Orthopedic Surgery. 


Opinions and treatment options can vary for neck and spine pain or other back problems. For run of the mill back pain a first treatment can mean physical therapy. Sometimes though, the problem will be more severe than physical surgery can handle. When this happens, your healthcare provider or doctor may want to consult with an orthopedic surgeon.


Procedures that may be considered when treating back problems that are specific to Dr. Bendiks are:

  • Bendiks Percutaneous Lumbar Fusion
  • Bendiks Stenoplasty for Spinal Stenosis
Other treatments for both neck problems and back problems are available. No two patients are alike. Each person is an individual and should always be treated as such. Treatment options and opinions are based on your own personal symptoms and your individualized treatment plan. 



Many doctors and insurance companies suggest that you get a second opinion before any type of surgery. Dr. Erik T. Bendiks, M.D. is affiliated with seven Atlanta area hospitals. As a spine surgeon and researcher he is qualified to be the surgeon of your choice or to render second opinions.


Sometimes, it won't even be necessary to come into the office. If you need an opinion on an MRI you can get a free review right over the telephone. All you need to do to get this going is visit their website through any of the links on this page. You will find a MRI Review and Consultation Request Form to fill out. 


Your best chance to get the best healthcare is to be an educated patient. Visiting the website for this orthopedic surgeon in Atlanta may be the first step in helping you get the healthcare that you want.
