The Patient Experience

Patients receive highly personalized care at the Mayfield Spine Surgery Center.

When you’re in pain, anxiety often accompanies it. That’s why we designed our center to feel more like a relaxing spa than a medical facility, with private rooms, cutting-edge technology, and a warm, calm environment. 

What to expect

You may feel anxious or have questions about the next steps. Our goal is to help you understand what to expect, what tests and clearances are needed, and how to prepare for spine surgery—so that you are in the best possible health for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery.


Our dedicated physicians, nurses, and staff will make sure you and your family know:

  • How to prepare before a procedure
  • What the day of procedure looks like
  • The technology or treatment that will be used
  • Recovery expectations   
  • Where you can stay if you’re traveling from out of town for treatment

Follow your physician’s instructions regarding stopping medications and blood thinners. You should check with your Primary Care Physician or Cardiologist to make sure it is safe for you to discontinue these medications. If you are unable to stop these medications, please let your pain management physician or surgeon know before your procedure so that you may discuss your options.


Follow your physician’s specific instructions regarding eating and drinking prior to the procedure. In many cases, you are not allowed to eat or drink before the procedure.
