Spine care

Spine specialists, who can be orthopedists or neurosurgeons, diagnose and treat injuries, trauma and diseases related to the spine. Spine care doctors also offer care for herniated disk, nerve damage, sciatica, neck pain or chronic back pain.

Our spine care services

We offer a multidisciplinary approach to spine care, ensuring our patients receive the type of care that is just right for them.

Spine surgery

We offer inpatient and outpatient surgery to resolve back pain and spine disorders and to restore mobility. After surgery, you receive ongoing care — including physical therapy — to aid in your recovery. Some of the spinal surgeries we offer include:

  • Disc arthroplasty
  • Spinal instability procedures
  • Vertebral fracture repairs
Robot-assisted spine surgery

Robotic technology for back surgery is associated with safer and higher-quality outcomes compared to traditional techniques. The robotic system ensures accuracy and limits your exposure to radiation. It also enables us to operate using smaller incisions, which reduces blood loss, postoperative pain and risk of infection.

Using an advanced guidance platform, your spine surgeon develops a comprehensive orthopedic care plan and visual outline of the procedure. Then, using robotic navigation, our spine doctors operate with precise, efficient movements.

Our spine surgeons use robotics to perform:

  • Decompressive laminectomy
  • Discectomy
  • Spinal fusion
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Kyphoplasty

Spine surgery coordination

No matter your surgery type, our orthopedic patient coordinator helps guide you through the surgical process and facilitates communication with your care team. This approach to spine surgery results in positive patient outcomes.
