Multidisciplinary Spine Team

The Spine Center is truly multidisciplinary, providing our patients a full spectrum of spine treatment options. Our team includes physiatrists, who are extensively trained in interventional spine procedures to treat pain and disability, and physical therapists, who have specialized interest and training in maintaining or regaining spine health. 

If conservative options do not relieve your pain, you may be referred to a spine surgeon. Our surgical care team includes neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons, who have advanced training and experience in all aspects of spine health.

This surgical care is augmented by a highly trained team of advanced practice providers who are involved in your care from your first surgical visit until your pain is relieved and quality of life is restored. 

Your Spine Specialists 

Each new patient at the Spine Center is first evaluated by one of our spine physicians. Together with you, they help navigate all of the different treatment options available before considering surgery. This in-house expertise ensures that each patient has convenient access to the appropriate type of spine care provided by an experienced specialist.
