What We Treat at the Spine Care Center

Patients experiencing neck and back pain receive an initial evaluation and the appropriate tests so that an accurate diagnosis can be made and treatment can begin.

Specific treatment plans are customized for each patient. The treatment depends upon the specific disorder or condition diagnosed. Treatment may include physical therapy, pain management, biofeedback or surgical intervention.

Our Spine Care Center is available to treat conditions from simple to the most complex. This includes:

  • Failed previous back surgery
  • Spine trauma
  • Spine tumors
  • Spine infection
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Disk herniation
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Scoliosis
  • Chronic lower back and neck pain
  • Sacroiliac joint disorders
  • Automobile accidents
  • Work-related accidents

Minimally Invasive Surgery

The Spine Care Center surgeons are experts in peforming minimally invasive surgery. Smaller incisions, a hallmark of minimally invasive surgery, lead to faster recovery times, smaller scars and less pain.

With easy access to appointments with an orthopaedic specialist, you will be able to get diagnosed, get treatment and get back to enjoying life.

Back Revision Surgery: Relief When Other Methods Fail

Our Spine Care Center team has special interest in managing patients who are still experiencing pain following spine surgery. We assess each patient thoroughly to make sure we know the pain's origin and if revision surgery would be beneficial.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Our team treats complicated cases of sacroiliac joint pain, including injections, radiofrequency ablation and fusions.
