The Spine Center
About Our Program
Wake Forest Baptist Health provides many services through our Spine Center, including spinal surgery and rehabilitation therapy.
Our spinal surgery program is about more than just treating the condition-we treat the whole patient. We know making decisions about your health can be stressful, and you may have many questions. Our staff of physicians, surgeons, nurses and rehabilitation specialists is here to help you; if spinal surgery and a hospital stay are required, we do our best to make sure you're comfortable not just physically, but with the important decision you've made.
Comprehensive Spine Treatment
Each patient receives an innovative system of care focused not just on the disease, but on the individual patient. Treating patients with the combined expertise of physicians, radiologists, surgeons, physical therapists and pain management specialists, we are able to tailor treatment plans for each individual, ensuring a greater potential for getting the right treatment at the right time, with the best possible outcome.
Our Neck and Spine Services
Whether a patient is in need of treatment for a routine spinal condition like a herniated disk, or a complex spine disorder, our highly trained and experienced staff is able to provide the best spinal surgery care available using the newest technology. We give each patient the individualized care they have come to expect from Wake Forest Baptist. We perform hundreds of orthopaedic, neurological and spine surgeries every year and are nationally recognized for our expertise in many neurological disorders. Meet our physicians.
Superior Service and Compassionate Care
Our doctors are committed to providing exceptional service to each patient who chooses Wake Forest Baptist for their surgical needs. We choose the best course of treatment, keeping in mind the financial and emotional needs of our patients.
Spine Cancer Treatment Technology
We are one of the few centers in the country to focus on spine cancer treatment using spinal surgery noninvasive Gamma Knife technology. Gamma Knife pinpoints tiny beams of radiation to destroy diseased tissue without harming healthy tissue. Its high success rate and short recovery period for patients makes it the preferred choice of neurosurgeons worldwide.
We have been using this spinal surgery technology since 1999. We are one of the few centers funded by the National Cancer Institute to conduct brain cancer research using the world's most innovative therapies. Our current Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ machine is the most accurate and advanced radiosurgery technology available.
