Approximately 80% of individuals will experience at least one episode of spine pain in their lifetime. For some, that pain may be minor and temporary. For others it can be debilitating, affecting every aspect of their daily lives.
Who we are
In 2018, St. Mary’s Medical Center and their affiliate neurosurgeons, began an initiative to develop a Comprehensive Spine Center with the primary goal of increasing accessibility to spine care for all patients, regardless of the duration of their pain. Our center sees over 1,000 new patients per year. We believe in providing multi-disciplinary care with increasing emphasis on non- surgical modalities. In fact, almost 90% of our patients are treated non-surgically.* We have developed protocols that help standardize treatments for acute and sub-acute spine pain. We also provide unique, cognitive based therapy for chronic spine pain. Additionally, we evaluate clinical outcome data in an effort to improve the services we provide to our patients. By doing so, we hope to provide value based care while decreasing overall cost of spine care.
Philosophy of care
When you are our patient, we don’t have walls. We will work with you and your primary care physician on the best treatment plan for you. You will have the benefit of our combined expertise throughout your treatment at home or elsewhere.
