The Spine Center provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to neck and back pain. Our team includes world-renowned specialists from neurosurgery, orthopaedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, behavioral health, pain management, and physical therapy. Our goal is to improve each patient's quality of life with the least invasive spine treatment. When surgery is required, our surgeons use state-of-the-art surgical technology, including advanced surgical navigation for more precise placement of implants.
Our dedicated team of spine specialists offers advanced, personalized, and patient-focused spine care that starts with a comprehensive assessment for a variety of spinal ailments and injuries. Because patients with spine problems often benefit from having more than one type of health care provider, the members of our Spine Center team come together at one location to optimize patient care.
