The spine (neck and backbone) is a very important part of our body. It supports the body’s weight and protects the spinal cord, which tremendously impacts one’s sense of well-being. Whether you have sciatica, osteoporosis, low back pain, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, myelopathy, spinal stenosis or compression, radiculopathy, or other back problems, the caregivers at Providence Saint John’s Health Center understand the impact it has on day-to-day life. That is why the experienced team of neurologic and orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation specialists, exercise therapists and pain experts share a common goal of returning you to good health.
A wide range of spinal treatment options
Providence Saint John’s offers a comprehensive facility to handle your complete course of care, from diagnoses to rehabilitation services. Whenever possible, our surgeons will recommend conservative approaches such as physical therapy, exercises or medication. However, for more serious conditions, including large herniated discs, degenerated vertebrae or spinal stenosis, a surgical intervention may be needed, especially if causing incapacitation or signs of neurologic compromise.
Personal, specialized spine care
Providence Saint John’s physicians treat every patient with dignity and respect. We use the most current technology for diagnosis and treatment, such as the latest Zeiss microscope to enhance our visual precision during surgery. We offer specialized care for a multitude of spinal and peripheral nerve disorders with the goal of giving our patients mobility and eliminating pain.
Advanced and comprehensive spinal treatment
At Providence Saint John’s, our surgeons have access to a multitude of the latest innovative medical devices, along with spinal navigation software, so selecting the best option for our patient is never a limiting factor.
