Back pain relief: Minimally invasive & nonsurgical solutions.
If you suffer from back pain, you know how painful and debilitating it can be. But did you know that up to 80 % or more of American adults will experience back pain at some time during their lives? The causes of back pain are many. They include muscle strain, cervical and lumbar disc herniation,degenerative disc disease, spinal fractures, tumors, scoliosis or spondylolisthesis. When back pain strikes, you’ll want an experienced specialist who can deliver the skilled, compassionate care you deserve.
Our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine physicians have the training and experience you need. Along with our physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, we have successfully treated thousands of patients, reducing pain and restoring function.
Skilled care in a surgical suite.
If you cannot function at a desired level for your lifestyle, or your problem becomes progressively worse in spite of conservative treatments, then surgery may be your only option. In the most cases, modern spinal surgery is extremely successful at alleviating pain and restoring mobility. The following are some of the most commonly performed procedures:
- Discectomy – removal of all or part of the damaged disc
- Decompression – removal of bone spurs
- Corpectomy – removal of vertebra
- Fusion – joining of spinal segments in the affected area
- Lumbar laminectomy
- Minimal-access surgery
- Artificial disc replacement

Physical medicine can help you avoid surgery.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation can often strengthen the spine and the muscles that support it. They can alleviate back pain without surgery.
