“Everyone who took care of me at Meadowlands Hospital from the Emergency Room to ICU to the unit where I was discharged, did an excellent job.”
— Ann G., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/3West Patient, August 2017
“Nurses couldn’t have been kinder or more understanding. There were no delays. I would definitely recommend Meadowlands Emergency Room and if I or my husband were injured again we would definitely go there.”
— Elaine B., Meadowlands Hospital Emergency Room Patient, September 2017
“Very good experience. No delays at all. I would recommend this hospital to everyone – I will always go to Meadowlands Hospital. I was treated like a queen!”

There are many different reasons why a person may need back surgery. Disease, aging, and trauma are all reasons why a patient may seek out this medical option. Here at Meadowlands Hospital our surgeons will evaluate each patient on an individual basis to see if this is necessary. Chronic back pain can be so debilitating that a person's life is altered drastically. Some might feel that surgery is the only answer for relief. In fact, only a small percentage of cases will require surgery. Anti-inflammatory medication, heat, ice, physical therapy, and massage may offer aide, but if these treatments do not help, our surgical services may. Many types of surgery such as diskectomy, laminectomy, vertebroplasty, and fusion can be performed on patients who do not respond well to non-surgical treatments.
