The Spine and Orthopedic Center


SPine and ortho 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 and spinal fusion surgery. In combination, this broad-based variety of modalities helps to ensure our patients receive a comprehensive approach to recovery.
