Orthopaedic Spine

Orthopaedic Spine DoctorMore than 8 of every 10 Americans will experience a lifestyle-altering episode of back pain at some point in their lives, and 90 percent of single episodes of back pain become recurrent. Our goal is to prevent and provide relief for back pain and spinal disorders.

Our highly qualified physicians specialize in providing treatment for:

  • Traumatic and overuse injuries to the spine
  • Spinal deformities, both acquired and congenital
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Systemic diseases affecting spinal function
  • Degenerative spinal conditions such as arthritis
  • Spinal osteoporosis
  • Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis
  • Herniated disc
  • Scoliosis and kyphosis
  • Soft-tissue sprains, strains and contusions
  • Work-related back pain
  • Mechanical back dysfunction
  • Fractures, dislocations and subluxations
  • Spinal tumors

After effectively establishing a diagnosis, our team of specialists develops a plan of care that best meets the needs of each patient with a spinal problem. We first explore a variety of non-surgical treatment options, including prescribed rest, exercise and conditioning programs (such as physical therapy). If these methods do not correct the problem, our surgeons use the latest minimally invasive techniques to restore a more normal contour to the spine, minimize or eliminate pain, and restore mobility.
