Spine care treatments

Depending on your condition, surgery can be the most viable option for successful recovery. However, some conditions can be treated via nonsurgical means. No matter the case, we cater your treatment plan specifically to what you are going through.

Spine surgery treatments

When other forms of treatment like medication, pain management and physical therapy are not effective, surgery is often necessary. Whenever possible, our surgeons employ minimally invasive procedures, which use a series of small incisions, rather than one large incision, allowing for less pain, less scarring, less blood loss and faster recovery. Some of our surgical offerings include:

  • Bone fracture repair via injections of bone cement
  • Herniated disc removal
  • Nerve pressure decompression
  • Neuromodulation therapy
  • Neurosurgical treatment
  • Spinal fusion of two or more vertebrae
Nonsurgical treatments

When your condition is not severe enough for surgical intervention, we offer an array of nonsurgical treatments, including:

  • Epidural steroid injections directly into inflamed back nerves
  • Facet joint injections that reduce inflammation and confirm the source of spine pain
  • Pain management with medication
  • Physical therapy
