How We Can Help
Customized Evaluation and Treatment
Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians will provide a complete and thorough evaluation of your back or neck problem. This includes clinical evaluation and may also include x-rays, advanced imaging (such as CT scans and MRI) and other testing. Our team works with you and your primary care provider to create an individualized treatment plan that may include treatments such as physical therapy, spinal injections, nerve ablation or spinal cord stimulation and only if necessary, surgery.
Seamless Care Across Health Care Settings
We address spine conditions with both surgical and non-surgical approaches, depending on your situation, needs and desires. We strive to offer our patients seamless continuity of care from the inpatient to outpatient setting, as we get to know you and diagnose and manage your condition over time.
Regional Leaders in Surgical and Interventional Pain Procedures
When other, more conservative treatments are unsuccessful, we offer interventional pain procedures, such as epidural steroid injections and radiofrequency ablation. We also offer surgical procedures such as decompression or fusion. We are leaders in using intraoperative image-guided spine surgery to maximize your safety and the effectiveness of the procedure.
If you’re in pain, we understand that the first thing on your mind is getting relief. At the same time, you’re likely concerned about long-term dependence on pain medication. We focus on getting our patients away from long-term pain medications through a full range of interventions that may also include the use of complementary treatments, such as massage, nutrition, acupuncture and yoga.
