We are a referral source for commonplace spinal disorders and pain, as well as highly complex cases that require surgical revision or reconstruction.
Excellence in Spine Care

- Lumbar laminectomy
- Lumbar spine surgery
- Minimally invasive spine surgery and procedures

- Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty
At the Spine Center, when a patient and doctor decide surgery is the best option, we offer Spine School to give the patient an overview of what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Patients tour the hospital wing where they will receive care and meet staff members who will care for them during their inpatient stay and assist with their transition home.
Seamless Coordination of All Clinical Care and Support
The Spine Hospital teams provide unparalleled post-surgical care. We schedule patients for follow-up appointments and closely monitor their outpatient post-operative recovery and transition to, and successful completion of, any rehabilitative therapy needed. We are committed to assuring that each patient functions at their highest-possible level.
