Sarasota Lumbar Spine Surgeon

For patients who medically qualify for outpatient lumbar (low back) surgery or procedure at GulfCoast Surgery Center in Sarasota, they enjoy incredible cost savings and recover without hospitalization and with family and friends.  Dr. Fine performs laminectomies, discectomies, and lumbar discectomies and fusions (LDFs) at GulfCoast Surgery Center, where patients leave the surgery center and post-surgically return to their point of origin.  Home Health (skilled nursing) is ordered for a minimum of three days for patients who undergo LDFs, and patients will have a follow-up with either Dr. Fine or Brett Griffin, PAC. If you do not qualify for outpatient surgery, Andrew Fine, MD has privilieges at Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Doctors Hospital of Sarasota.


Sometimes the source of pain in the lower extremities can be linked to the lumbar spine (low back).  It is wise to visit an orthopedic surgeon for them to diagnose the source of your problems, and if medically necessary, they will direct your care to a neurosurgeon.
