Preparing for Spine Surgery


Join us for Back on Track, a free class to help you prepare for your spine surgery at Beaumont hospitals in Royal Oak, Troy or Grosse Pointe.

A discussion led by Beaumont spine care professionals will answer common questions and address your concerns before you have surgery. They will cover pre- and post-operative care, as well as at-home recovery practices.

A friend or family member may attend the class with you, but this is not required. You will take home educational material to help you prepare for your surgery.

Topics covered will include:

  • parking/registration
  • pre-op and anesthesia
  • post-op and post-anesthesia care unit
  • admission to inpatient floor
  • post-op expectations
  • pain management
  • average length of stay
  • discharge planning
  • physical therapy
