Are you experiencing sharp pain in your tailbone upon sitting? The tailbone in humans is called the coccyx. It is very vulnerable and permanent injury can occur quite easily.

Coccydynia is a debilitating condition that occurs in the tailbone. NJ Spine and Orthopedic has a large center that specializes in the treatment of coccyx pain.


The most common cause of coccyx pain is a coccyx fracture. The tailbone is easily fractured from a fall onto one’s buttocks. Once fractured, a small portion of patients never heal. They have chronic persistent nonunion. This hurts. You can’t sit. You have pain with walking. Most of our patients even have pain with a bowel movement.

Permanent painful nonunions and malunions of the coccyx are quite common. The reason why these nonunions occur is that once broken the bony structure has a scant blood supply. Thus, the tailbone has a difficult time healing itself without intervention and the pain is often chronic.

Specialized treatment of painful coccyx fractures

The treatment is simple. Remove the broken tailbone. You don’t need it. We are currently the leading center in the country at performing this type of procedure. We treat patients from all over the United States with a broken tailbone. We have a 99% success rate. So far, the surgery has always been done outpatient and most of our patients see immediate relief.


If prolonged or permanent buttock and tailbone pain occurs, we are one of the few practices in the United States that specializes in the treatment of painful coccyx fractures. In fact our surgeons have successfully treated and cured more painful coccyx problems than any other center in the country. We treat coccyx injuries every week at our facility. The outpatient tailbone surgery is simple and effective.

Patients no longer have to suffer with chronic tailbone pain. There is a safe, effective cure. The orthopedic treatment (and subsequent cure) is a coccygectomy. It is a safe outpatient surgery that our surgeons have used successfully time and time again. Once the tailbone is removed, 95% of our patients are pain free in 90 days or less. Overall, we are #1 in the country with a 99% success rate for coccygectomy procedures used to reduce and eliminate tailbone pain.
