Are you one of the 50 million people in the United States experiencing neck or back pain? 

Are everyday activities such as carrying your groceries, swinging a golf club or lifting a child becoming unbearable? You are not alone. 

We created the Spine Health Center with three goals in mind:

  • Relieve your pain
  • Restore your independence
  • Get you back to work and daily activities as quickly as possible

Our highly-skilled, deeply caring team of physicians, nurses and physical and occupational therapists are with you every step of the way, making sure you that the treatment we provide is exactly what you need, both physically and emotionally. You need support at a time like this. That’s why we’re here.

Here are some of our highlights:

  • We use a multi-pronged approach to pain management so we find what is best for you and your specific situation
  • We offer a “Friends & Family” coaching program to help your loved ones help you through recovery
  • You can be back to mobility the same day as your surgery
  • You have your own Spine Program navigator to help guide you through the recovery process
  • Our Care Pathways help guide your recovery during your hospital stay

Your Hospital Experience

On the day of surgery, you will be admitted to a unit dedicated to the care of patients undergoing surgery. During your stay, our team of expert surgeons, specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians will work together to provide you with care and support, help manage your pain, assist you with mobility and prepare you for a safe transition to home.
