Spine surgeons and doctors are orthopedic and medical specialists who have training and expertise in diagnosing and treating spinal conditions. Spine specialists help people coping with challenging spine and back conditions, like a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, or spondylosis. These specialty-trained surgeons and physicians also treat arthritis and other degenerative conditions of the spine.
At Advanced Orthopedics of Oklahoma, our spinal care team includes surgeons and doctors who have extensive training and experience in spine anatomy, nonsurgical orthopedic care, spine pain treatments, orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, and minimally invasive spinal procedures.
Our spine care team includes fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons Dr. Kasra Ahmadinia, Dr. R. Tyler Boone, Dr. Thomas Craven, and Dr. Randall Hendricks. Our additional spine provider is fellowship-trained sports medicine doctor and nonsurgical spine specialist Dr. Steven Hardage. Together, our team draws on their knowledge and expertise to develop a tailored, comprehensive treatment plan for every patient. Our doctors will always recommend an approach that will best serve that patient, considering treatment options other than surgery first. As board-certified orthopedic surgeons, our surgical spine specialists can also perform a full range of surgeries for all spine-related pain and limitation.

Our Spine Experts Care for Patients Just Like You
When a patient first notices pain in the spine, it’s common to wait to see if the pain will go away. However, pain may not improve, and some injuries should be treated immediately, like a spinal injury. It’s important not to wait too long if you believe you have any type of spine problem.
Our spine doctors provide the expert care a patient needs, including medication, X-rays and MRIs, home exercise and injury prevention programs, epidural injections, guided spinal injections, physical therapy, or spine surgery. Often times, our spine doctors can find treatment options for a patient using nonsurgical therapies. For example, we offer epidural steroid injections, wherein your physician injects a steroid into a nerve root in the spine to relieve back or neck pain or other related symptoms. In another situation, the doctor might recommend that a patient see a physical therapist versus having a type of spine surgery.
If spine surgery is the treatment your doctor recommends, your orthopedic surgeon, backed by our entire spine treatment team, can expertly perform the surgery. Whatever spine surgery is required, they have access to the latest state-of-the-art equipment to perform the surgical procedure, including:
- Discectomy surgery
- Disc replacement surgery
- Microdecompression surgery
- Minimally invasive spine surgery
- Navigation-guided spine surgery
- Scoliosis surgery
- Spinal fusion surgery
