Our spine surgeons are experts in a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatments for spine disorders from arthritis to lumbar deformity. We offer both minimally invasive and open surgeries. With state-of-the-art facilities and leading-edge research, we are able to provide you the latest treatment options available. 

Why Choose Us for Spine Care

  • Personalized treatment plans: Back injury and disease are very common in the U.S. Our specialists understand that no two people are alike. We have assembled a group of experts to create a personalized plan based on your injury, disease and lifestyle. We also specialize in non-surgical methods for managing chronic back, neck and spine pain.
  • Skilled in treating degenerative disease: We are experts in treating degenerative conditions of the spine. Not only do we treat these diseases, but we also provide innovative techniques (like dorsal root ganglion stimulation) to help with the pain that often comes with them.
  • Innovative research studies: Our spine specialists are focused on designing a new way of treating spine surgery, with as few incisions as possible so that you can get back to doing the things you love. We’re at the forefront of new technologies, focused on developing better ways to treat spinal disorders and injuries. 
  • All the specialists you need: Our neurology and neurosurgery team is in one location, so your physicians and surgeons can easily collaborate to treat you. We combine the expertise of medical physicians, therapists and surgeons to provide complete care. Working together, our neurologists, neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, rehabilitation specialists and advanced practitioners provide you with treatment options that improve your quality of life and manage your symptoms.

Conditions We Treat

  • Arthritis, inflammation (swelling) in the joints in the spine
  • Back pain 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, where the median nerve is squeezed (compressed) between bones in your wrist
  • Cervical spine conditions, or neck conditions
  • Compression fractures, where a vertebra is damaged and collapses, often due to loss of bone mass
  • Degenerative spine conditions, or gradual loss of normal spine structure and function.
  • Disk disease, conditions caused by the breakdown of the disks that separate the vertebrae
  • Herniated disk, when a disk bulges, causing symptoms like pain and numbness
  • Lumbar spine conditions, or lower back conditions
  • Myelopathy, a nerve injury in the spinal cord
  • Neck pain
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, an often painful condition in the joint connecting the pelvis and the bone at the base of the spine
  • Spinal deformities like scoliosis and kyphosis, which are abnormal curvatures of the spine
  • Spine fractures
  • Spinal stenosis, narrowing of the spinal canal surrounding the nerves of the spinal cord
  • Spine trauma and injuries

Services We Offer

Your back, neck and spine care may start with medical treatments or combine medical and surgical techniques to get you on the road to recovery. Our surgeons specialize in minimally invasive techniques, which use fewer, smaller incisions so you can recover faster. Typical treatment options include:

  • Interventional therapies, which help reduce pain from conditions that are difficult to treat. These include procedures like rhizotomy, dorsal root ganglion stimulation and endoscopic foraminotomy.
  • Minimally invasive surgeries, which can offer some patients faster, less painful recovery. These include endoscopic spine surgery and minimally invasive laminectomy and diskectomy.
  • Spinal fusion surgery, which can help treat damage or deformities in the spine. We perform a number of advanced techniques, including anterior lumbar interbody fusion, lateral interbody fusion, sacroiliac fusion and minimally invasive surgical fusion.

What to Expect

From day one, our focus is providing you compassionate service. You will be greeted by our friendly staff, fully committed to caring for the whole you. At your visits, our doctors take the time to get to know you and your needs. 

You’ll begin by meeting with a surgeon, who will ask questions and recommend tests to help you determine your treatment options. If you are experiencing numbness or tingling in your arms or legs, we may also perform an EMG (electromyography) to test how well your nerves are conducting signals.

We’ll help you understand your treatment plan and choose the best options available to you. If you need surgery, our inpatient team will be by your side before, during and after your procedure. You’ll come back two weeks after your surgery for a checkup to see how your recovery is progressing. We’ll continue to guide your recovery so you can get back to doing the things you love.
