Our approach to spine and back care

We understand spine conditions don’t just hurt — they disrupt your daily life. When simple movements such as bending down, walking up stairs and even getting out of bed become challenging, we can help.

Our team of specialists includes physiatrists (rehab specialists), pain management physicians, spine surgeons, physical therapists, behavioral health experts and nurse navigators. We have extensive experience in a variety of innovative treatment options to treat new and chronic spine conditions.

Expert spine care

WellSpan's team of spine specialists includes board-certified surgeons, physiatrists, pain management physicians, physical therapists, behavioral health specialists and nurse navigators, all working as one to treat your neck and back issues.

Innovative technology

WellSpan's image-guided spinal and cranial surgery program was the first in the nation to integrate Stryker navigation and the Airo TruCT imaging technology. These advanced technologies have enabled intraoperative (during surgery) computed tomography (CT)-based imaging technology at WellSpan York Hospital.

Minimally invasive techniques

If other, more conservative treatments aren’t working for you, we offer interventional pain procedures, such as epidural steroid injections and radiofrequency ablation.

Personalized treatment plans

We address spine conditions with surgical and nonsurgical approaches, depending on your situation, needs and treatment goals.

Seamless continuity of care

We strive to offer you seamless continuity of care from the inpatient to outpatient setting, as we get to know you and manage your health needs over time.
