  • Myelography

Treatment options for neck and back pain

Neck and back injuries and disorders are often complex. Because of this, your treatment may include specialists from our orthopedic care and neurological care programs. This ensures you receive high-quality, integrated treatment.

Nonsurgical treatments

Our spine care teams exhaust all nonsurgical treatments for neck and back disorders before progressing to spine surgery, including:

  • Injections
  • Oral medications
  • Physical therapy
Minimally invasive spine surgery

We provide access to interventional neuroradiology procedures, such as kyphoplasty, for spine treatment. Additionally, our neck and back specialists have pioneered new surgical approaches, giving you more choices when it comes to spine care.

Our spine treatments include:

  • Discectomy — Removes all or part of a herniated disc
  • Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty — Repair vertebral fractures
  • Laminectomy — Removes a bone spurs
  • Spinal decompression — Relieves compressed nerves or pressure on the spinal cord
  • Spinal fusion — Connects two or more vertebrae together to increase stability, decrease pain, or correct an abnormality

Robot-assisted spine surgery

We are proud to be specially trained and experienced with minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, including robotic surgery. These techniques use smaller incisions and offer greater tissue preservation. They enable us to correct your back and neck issues faster but with equal amounts of precision and effectiveness.

Spinal cord injury treatment

A spinal cord injury occurs when a sudden injury to the spine breaks or dislocates the vertebrae, causing damage to the spinal cord tissue. The bleeding and swelling after the initial injury can also cause additional spinal cord damage.

Because of the complexity of spinal cord injuries, specialized treatment is essential for a safe recovery. Our spine team provides this level of expert care, ensuring proper evaluation, stabilization, treatment and rehabilitation.


Spine rehabilitation

After a spine injury or surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation help strengthen your body so you can make a healthy recovery. This is why we begin occupational or physical therapy during your hospital stay. If you had a course in physical therapy for pain relief, you'll understand its benefits.

In addition to neck and back pain relief, a customized rehabilitative plan helps restore your mobility and independence. Should you need additional rehabilitation after discharge, we also offer outpatient therapy.
