Back & Spine Treatments

Working to provide the comprehensive treatment you need

The spinal cord is tasked with transmitting signals from our brains throughout the rest of our bodies. Depending on the location of the damage, any disruption to that signal can seriously affect countless other areas of our bodies. While the bundle of nerves that makes up our neurological pathways is protected by a bone casing, even something that seems like a small injury can quickly become something far more severe.

Our medical professionals are committed to providing superior care for our patients suffering from spinal disease or spinal trauma. Our spinal care specialists and neurosurgeons work alongside our orthopedic spine surgeons to perform complex reconstructive spinal procedures, and treat a wide range of spinal conditions, including:

  • Cervical and lumbar disc
  • Herniation cervical
  • Myelopathy
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Cord tumors
  • Spinal malformations
  • Stenosis
  • Spinal trauma

What you can do to prepare for an appointment

No matter the severity of your injury, it’s important to take the time to care for yourself in order to mitigate the potential damage and prepare to meet with your doctor. Whether your injury was caused in a single event or developed over time, our team of medical professionals are ready to treat you using the latest and most effective treatments available today. Some of the treatments we offer include:

  • Microsurgical neurological care
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Spinal stabilization
  • Motion preservation
  • Spinal fusion
  • Traditional open surgery
  • Disc arthroplasty
  • Disc replacement

Our spine surgeons remain at the forefront of microsurgical neurosurgical care, and have advanced the field of minimally invasive surgery through continued development and application of new and innovative surgical and non-surgical treatment options. We will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that will help you recover from your injuries.
