The Problem with Spine Care Today

We know that the burden of spine disorders on individuals and society is enormous. Patients are faced with a wide array of treatment options, some of which are based more on marketing than science or clinical benefit.  This can be very stressful for a patient.  Spine care today is fragmented, expensive, and often has little clinical data to support its effectiveness.

We believe we can and must do better.  We are committed to treating patients based on scientific protocols, emphasizing education, healthy lifestyles, and conservative treatments over surgery. When surgery is indicated, the use of minimally invasive (MIS) techniques results in better outcomes with less pain and fewer complications. We have spent over 25 years perfecting our patient selection and minimally invasive surgical techniques, presenting our results at association meetings and publishing articles in prestigious journals.
