Spine (neck & back)

Innovative treatments for age-old back and neck problems

Back problems are not new. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of Americans will experience at least one episode of low back pain in their lifetime. Neck pain is also common complaint of chronic pain. Other symptoms that you might experience in addition to pain are numbness and tingling down your arms or legs, weakness, and even deformity.

Our specialists can provide an expert evaluation to help you identify the cause of your pain and recommend treatment options. If your condition does not improve with conservative treatments such as rest, medication for pain and inflammation, or physical therapy, our spine specialists may recommend surgery.

If you have had previous spine surgery, we know you need special care and you’ll get it from our highly experienced surgical teams.
