Neck & Spine
The spine (comprising the neck, midback, and low back) is one of the most complex areas of the human body. Because of this complexity, each patient who suffers from back pain requires individualized evaluation, assessment and treatment. The back or neck pain, whether caused by injury or disease, with prompt evaluation and care can avoid serious and often more painful consequences.
Some of the most common spine conditions treated at the University Orthopaedic Clinic & Spine Center include:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Scoliosis/pediatric spinal deformity
- Back and neck trauma
- Disc problems, herniated discs
- Degenerative spine conditions
- Cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine conditions
- Spinal stenosis, tumors, and fractures
- Spinal instability
- Spinal cord compression/abnormality
The University Orthopaedic Clinic & Spine Center offers comprehensive back and neck care, including all aspects of diagnosis and treatment (both non-surgical and surgical). We offer patients the convenience of coordinating their care through MRI testing, physical therapy, and when necessary, surgery.
Our neck and spine surgeons emphasize compassionate, conservative and individualized treatment plans based on proven, leading-edge technology. Many specialized neck and back conditions are treated by our fellowship-trained Spine Specialist Physician without ever requiring surgery.
