Spine treatments we offer

When possible, we first take a nonsurgical approach to treat back and neck pain.

We focus on practical procedures and follow-up therapies designed to speed recovery and improve your overall spine health.

Spine surgery

Sometimes, nonsurgical methods are not enough to relieve your back or neck pain issues. If surgery is necessary, our compassionate providers understand that you may be anxious about the procedures, and therefore make sure are with you each step of the way, educating you about what to expect before, during and after surgery.

In addition, our highly skilled spine surgeons have a superior breadth of experience with back and neck surgeries, from straightforward operations to highly complex procedures:

  • Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with internal fixation and interbody device
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion with internal fixation and interbody device
  • Artificial disc replacement
    • Anterior disc arthroplasty
    • Lumbar disc arthroplasty
  • Cervical corpectomy with instrumentation
