The Spine and Orthopedic Center


At the Spine and Orthopedic Center, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care relating to back and neck conditions. Additionally, we also specialize in treatment of orthopedic conditions, including shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot conditions.

We believe that patients benefit from a conservative (non-surgical), multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. Our focus is on addressing total patient care by guiding our patients through the process of diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and re-injury prevention. Treatment options include pain management, spinal injections, and, if necessary, minimally invasive surgeries such as outpatient microdiscectomy, spinal fusion, and arthroscopic surgery. In combination, this broad-based variety of modalities helps to ensure our patients receive a comprehensive approach to recovery.

Here at the Spine and Orthopedic Center, our dedicated team of physicians includes Dr. Alan Moelleken, Dr. Amit Nathani, Dr. Benjamin Dirkx, and Dr. Tristan Zhang, who bring with them decades of combined experience. Dr. Moelleken is Board Certified in Orthopedic surgery, and is Spine Fellowship Trained in Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Surgery. He specializes in surgical and non-surgical spine treatment. Dr. Nathani is Board Eligible in Orthopedic Surgery, and is Fellowship Trained in Sports Medicine. He specializes in injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee, arthroscopy, shoulder replacement, and trauma surgery. Dr. Dirkx is Board Certified in Pain Medicine and Electro Diagnostic Medicine, and Board Certified and Fellow in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He specializes in treating all musculoskeletal conditions ranging from common knee issues to chronic back pain.

Our team of physician assistants work closely with our physicians to provide patients with a full spectrum of treatment solutions.
