Our spine care services

Our program offers a variety of services, including surgery, to help patients with back, neck and spine conditions.

Spine surgery

Our orthopedic care program reserves spine surgery as a last resort to treatment. However, if surgery is needed, our spine surgeons use advanced surgical technology. We provide minimally invasive spine procedures, which allow for shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries.

After surgery, our physical therapy and rehabilitation program helps our patients get back on their feet to promote healthy, full recoveries.

Spine patient navigator

Our spine patient navigator will help patients prepare for surgery and learn what to expect after their procedure.

The navigator's role is to provide education, support and coordination to help patients through the process of spine surgery. This includes:

  • Facilitating communication between all members of the healthcare team
  • Ensuring patients are aware of the educational offerings for their upcoming surgery
  • Helping patients understand the necessary pre-planning before surgery, such as arranging for home help, pet care and preparing your home
  • Serving as a reliable and trusted resource
  • Visiting patients during their hospital stays

To contact our spine patient navigator directly, please call (850) 315-8259.
