A different approach
Our patient-centered approach begins with listening to each patient's history, concerns, desires and preferences. We then work closely with the patient to develop a treatment plan that addresses their individual needs.
We offer an array of advanced technologies and techniques to help pinpoint causes of pain and optimize treatment. Beyond traditional approaches, we also can integrate alternative therapies as appropriate, including acupuncture, massage therapy and meditation. In addition, we focus on providing each patient detailed education about their pain conditions to help them avoid triggers and manage their pain as much as possible.
Virtually all movement in the body depends on the spine. Injury, illness or just normal aging can take a toll, causing pain and limiting movement from head to toe. Regardless of the reason, the NeuroHealth Institute Center for Spine Health is here to help uncover the issue and find a path to relief.
Our operating rooms are equipped with advanced imaging technology that offers surgeons real-time images during a procedure. This technology may help enhance patient safety and outcomes by helping surgeons to more precisely place implants, remove tissue and adjust anatomy inside the body during surgery.
Treating spine conditions
There are many different treatment approaches to address spine conditions. The Center for Spine Health focuses on finding the right diagnosis and then working with each patient to understand their goals, concerns and preferences. Our team then develops a personalized plan to help each patient achieve their goals.
Non-surgical treatment: When possible, we use non-surgical options including physical therapy, medications, chiropractic care and injections among other conservative therapies.
Surgical treatment: In addition to a wide range of minimally invasive procedures, we also offer our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program designed to minimize time in the hospital and potential complications while speeding the recovery process.
