The Spine Program at Mount Sinai Morningside

The Spine Program at Mount Sinai Morningside is committed to providing exceptional services and personalized care for individuals seeking treatment for a wide spectrum of spinal conditions. We pride ourselves on our dedicated team of spine specialists who are equipped to offer expert guidance and support throughout your treatment journey.

One distinctive feature of our Spine Program is the presence of a dedicated care navigator who serves as your liaison, ensuring a seamless and personalized experience. This care navigator plays a vital role in coordinating your appointments, connecting you with the appropriate specialists, and tailoring your care to your needs. We understand that every patient is unique, and our goal is to ensure that you receive the right care from the right specialist.

Our comprehensive approach to spine care includes a full range of treatment options, which encompass both non-surgical and surgical interventions. We recognize that not all spine conditions require surgery, and our team is committed to exploring conservative treatments whenever appropriate. These non-surgical options can include physical therapy, pain management, and other non-invasive therapies.

For cases where surgical intervention is necessary, our skilled neurosurgeons at Mount Sinai Morningside are well-versed in the latest techniques, including minimally invasive spine surgery. These advanced methods are employed when they can deliver equivalent or superior results compared to traditional open surgical procedures. Minimally invasive techniques often result in smaller incisions, reduced post-operative discomfort, and shorter recovery times, all of which contribute to an improved patient experience.
