Spine Surgery Dr. Michael Doyle Louisville KY Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic’s esteemed team of physicians includes Michael J. Doyle, MD, a board-certified neurosurgeon and Louisville, Kentucky, native who excels in minimally invasive outpatient spine surgery. If the time has come to consider surgical care for your neck or back pain, we encourage you to contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic and learn about what progressive treatment options may be available to you.

Am I a Candidate for Spine Surgery?

Spine surgery is generally only considered if conservative treatments such as physical therapy, activity modification, medication, and injection therapies fail to improve your symptoms. Surgical treatment may be appropriate if:

  • You have difficulty using your hands
  • You experience numbness, tingling sensations, or muscle weakness in your arms or legs
  • A degenerative spinal condition like stenosis or osteoarthritis is causing worsening symptoms
  • Your bladder or bowel control is being impacted by a spinal condition
  • There is pressure on your spinal cord from a bone spur, slipped disc, or shifting vertebra
  • You have a broken vertebra or spinal tumor
  • Your symptoms are severe and are taking away from your quality of life

Dr. Doyle takes a conservative approach to neck and back pain that focuses on avoiding unnecessary surgery through progressive non-surgical therapies. When surgery is clinically appropriate, he utilizes muscle-sparing and minimally invasive techniques to address underlying issues while reducing post-operation discomfort and recovery periods. Dr. Doyle often performs spine surgery on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients are able to return home to recover on the same day as their surgery.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
