The BACK Center Review: Everything You Need To Know

Dr. Deuk
An expert in all things spine, Dr. Deukmedjain is a board certified neurosurgeon who has performed thousands of minimally invasive surgeries and procedures including the revolutionary Deuk Laser Disc Repair and the Deuk Spinal Fusion. 

The BACK Center (Back Authority for Contemporary Knowledge) is a healthcare facility that provides back pain therapy and spine surgery. Because the Center is dedicated to the promotion of knowledge in spine care and treatment, diagnostic tests and an ambulatory surgical facility are also available as medical services.

The BACK Center has been around for years, but there have recently been worries regarding the medical safety and effectiveness of the treatment options. This article is The BACK Center Review and it covers its treatment options, surgery procedures, and better alternatives for chronic pain and spine-related health care surgery

What is the BACK Center?

The BACK Center is a neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery medical group practice in Melbourne, Florida. The Center is dedicated to advancing science in the care and treatment of the neck and spine. In addition to medical services, there is an auditorium designed for educational programs for the public and staff and a venue for training visiting residents and physicians.

Dr. Glenn Bryan created the Brevard Orthopedic Clinic in 1981. With the appointment of Dr. Richard A. Hynes in 1992, the Clinic concentrated on the treatment of the neck and spine. In 2002, the name was changed to Brevard Orthopedic Spine and Pain Clinic, doing business as The Back. Center. The term is an abbreviation for "Back Authority for Contemporary Knowledge.”

Conditions treated by The BACK Center

The following are some of the conditions treated at the BACK Center.

  • Fracture of the thoracic and lumbar spine: The most common spinal fractures happen in the thoracic (mid-back) and lumbar (lower back) spines, or where they meet (thoracolumbar junction). Trauma, such as a car accident, a fall from a great height, a violent act, or other underlying activity, is a common cause of thoracic and lumbar spine fractures.
  • Kyphosis (Curvature of the Spine): Kyphosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine which causes the top of the back to appear more rounded than normal.
  • Sciatica: Sciatica is caused by irritation of the nerve roots in the lower and lumbarsacral spine. The nerve roots may be pinched by the narrowing of their pathway, also known as foraminal stenosis, which irritates the nerves and causes pain and other sciatica symptoms, such as weakness, numbness, and shooting pain.

Other conditions treated by The BACK Center include scoliosis in children and adolescents, spinal fusion, spinal stenosis, and spondylolysis.

Is the Back Center good? 

While The BACK Center offers many treatment options for various spinal, neck, and back issues, it’s important to consider alternatives when looking at treatment options.

The Back Center and Deuk Spine Institute: Comparison

Both The BACK Center and Deuk Spine Institute have the same surgery similarities: 

  1. Both perform spine surgeries
  2. Both provide cutting-edge
  3. Both are minimally invasive procedures. 

The real difference is the Deuk Laser Disc Repair, the unique laser spine surgery technique performed at the Deuk Spine Institute–and nowhere else. The Deuk Laser Disc Repair is a minimally invasive, outpatient surgical method that uses endoscopic techniques to repair problematic discs without fusion, implants, or biologics. It’s the world's most advanced laser spine surgery, utilized as an alternative to risky invasive procedures such as complete disc replacement and spinal fusion.


Dr. Ara Deukmedjian, a renowned neuro-spine surgeon and a real pioneer in minimally invasive, laser, and endoscopic back and neck pain therapy, pioneered this breakthrough procedure. For 15 years and over 1,300 individuals treated, there has been a 95% success rate with no problems in any patient.

Deuk Laser Disc Repair provides several advantages over traditional spine surgery. Among these advantages are:

  • There are no implants (either plastic or metal) involved
  • It is the world's least invasive spine surgery, with fewer than 7mm or 4mm incisions
  • You can go back to work right away (with some restrictions)
  • There was no internal injury or scarring
  • No need for postoperative pain relievers
  • Outpatient surgery the same day
  • So far, no surgical problems have occurred

Unlike other laser spine surgery techniques, Deuk Laser does not degrade or weaken the spine's health.


How it works

To get started, Deuk Laser Disc Repair requires a very small incision, less than a quarter-inch long. A cylindrical rod called a dilator is inserted in the small opening to gently spread the muscle to create a small passage and guide through which the surgery is performed endoscopically. 

The tip of the dilator is advanced into the symptomatic disc through the tear in the annulus where the herniation originates, and a tube called the retractor slides over the dilator and is carefully positioned into the painful disc. The rest of the entire Deuk laser disc repair surgery will occur inside this narrow tube.

To access the spine, an endoscopic camera is inserted into the tubular retractor to allow the surgeon to guide the laser inside each symptomatic disc. This process ensures that bones and surrounding tissues are not damaged, unlike traditional spinal fusions, microdiscectomy, and artificial discs.

Some of the conditions treated with Deuk Laser Disc Repair include:
