Treatments our spine doctors offer

We provide comprehensive orthopedic care for spine conditions. Our spine doctors will evaluate your overall health and may order imaging tests to analyze the cause of your symptoms. Depending on your diagnosis, we may suggest nonsurgical therapies, minimally invasive procedures, advanced spine surgery or a combination of treatments.

Nonsurgical treatments

Sometimes, nonsurgical treatments can resolve your back pain and other symptoms. Some of our nonsurgical therapies include:

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation — Therapy and rehabilitation strengthens and stabilizes the body's core. Medically supervised, personalized fitness plans are developed by our board-certified physical therapy doctors to help you heal and increase your range of motion.
  • Spinal injections — Spine specialists use image-guided technology to inject medications that relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Injection therapies can include facet joint injections, epidural steroid injections, sacroiliac joint injections, nerve blocks and trigger point injections.

Advanced spine surgery

If your spine condition requires advanced techniques, our spine surgeons have expertise in a variety of procedures, including:

  • Disc replacement surgery — Replaces a damaged cervical or lumbar disc (the cushion between the vertebrae) with an artificial disc
  • Discectomy/microdiscectomy —Removes all or part of the disc
  • Foraminotomy — Removes bone or tissue to open the space where the nerves leave the spinal canal. It's sometimes performed along with spinal fusion surgery
  • Kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty — Involves injecting medical cement into the spine to treat spinal fractures, ease pain and restore height
  • Laminectomy or laminotomy — Removes the back of one or more vertebrae to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves. It's often performed with spinal fusion surgery
  • Spinal fusion — Joins two vertebrae with bone grafts and, sometimes, implants, such as rods and screws. The treatment helps improve spine stability
