Spine care treatments and services we offer

Our compassionate spine specialists can help relieve your back and neck pain using the latest technology.

Nonsurgical spine treatments

Our back specialists will first evaluate your overall health and lifestyle so we can customize a treatment plan that meets your needs. Your spine doctor will do their best to try nonsurgical and minimally invasive therapies to relieve your pain, such as:

Interventional spine procedures

We use procedures such as radiofrequency ablation to heat and destroy tissue or sensory nerves that cause pain.

Nerve stimulation

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy or implanted peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) devices are used to deliver low-voltage electrical currents to relieve pain.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Our board-certified physical and rehabilitation therapists develop and supervise a fitness plan to strengthen and stabilize your core.

Spinal injections

We use special imaging technology to deliver epidural, facet joint, sacroiliac joint, nerve block or trigger point injections to relieve your pain and reduce inflammation.


Surgical spine treatments

If your condition requires surgery, you may be eligible for minimally invasive surgery. Our team is able to stabilize joints, decompress pinched nerves, fuse bones or correct abnormalities through only a few, small incisions. With these techniques, you will benefit from less trauma to muscles and tissues, less pain and a faster recovery. Many patients go home within 48 hours after surgery.

Our expert spine surgeons perform traditional, open or minimally invasive surgeries, including:

  • Disc replacement surgery — replaces a damaged disc with an artificial one
  • Discectomy/microdiscectomy — removes all or part of the disc, the cushion between the vertebrae
  • Foraminotomy — removes bone or tissue to open the space where the nerves leave the spinal canal<.li>
  • Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty — treats spinal fractures, eases pain and restores height
  • Laminectomy or laminotomy — removes part of the backbone to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves
  • Spinal fusion — increases spine stability by joining two vertebrae using bone grafts and sometimes implants, such as rods and screws
Spine surgery rehabilitation

Treatment at our spine surgery center is followed by appointments with your surgeon. You'll also receive rehabilitation from our licensed therapists who specialize in spinal conditions.
