“I came to the Meadowlands Hospital experiencing massive convulsion…thank god I found the best place. Nurses were at the very top in knowing what was wrong with me at probably the worst moments of my life. Doctors were very understanding and were able to make fast decisions and to use tools that resulted in decreased levels of extraordinary pain. The Registration Clerk was fast and effective. I have received care when I most needed. Here I received better care than in larger hospitals in the area. I would recommend this hospital whenever I have the opportunity to do so. God Bless You!”
— Dragan J., Meadowlands Hospital Emergency Room Patient, August 2017
“Nurse Chelline Lichtenberger at the Meadowlands Hospital was the best nurse I have ever dealt with. She was immediately on top of everything I asked for. Aides Idelle Carter and Delfi Lopez were very good. Staff provided my wife with meals – very thoughtful.”

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.
