Specialty care for back injuries, scoliosis and more

Our spine care team listens to understand you and your health concerns. Then, we create a personalized care plan to help you get back to what you love. We provide nonsurgical and surgical treatments for conditions affecting the middle back and lower back, such as:

  • Herniated disc
  • Nerve compression (sciatica)
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spine fracture

Surgery is not the first treatment option. We offer conservative treatments to help reduce the inflammation of a compressed nerve causing numbness and pain. When surgery is recommended, our surgeons use image-guided, computer-assisted technology to treat persistent spine pain. Minimally invasive treatments include:

  • Decompressive lumbar laminectomy
  • Lumbar microdiscectomy
  • Spinal fusion 

Our neurosurgeons also specialize in cervical spine care and cerebrovascular conditions affecting your neck and brain. We use diagnostic imaging and functional neurological tests to detect the cause of your pain and numbness. We listen to understand you and your health needs. Then we deliver the care that’s right for you.
