Our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons offer the latest treatment options—both conservative and surgical—for neck and back pain and other symptoms related to spine conditions. To ensure the optimal approach for each patient, our surgeons and pain management specialists work closely together on site.

Why Is Specialized Spine Care So Important?

The spine is a complex and intricate structure made up of many bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerve roots, and, of course, the spinal cord. For this reason, effective spine care requires specialized knowledge and experience. The spine care team at AOSMI has the focused expertise necessary to accurately determine and thoroughly understand an underlying issue in the spine.

After we diagnose a spine condition, we then collaboratively develop a personalized treatment plan using the most conservative therapies that are appropriate. For instance, before suggesting surgery, we typically recommend one or more non-surgical spine care options, such as:

  • Activity modifications
  • Stretches
  • Low-impact exercises
  • Customized physical therapy
  • Pain relievers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Fluoroscopy-guided spine injections

When Does Spine Care Involve Surgery?

Conservative spine care is effective for many patients, allowing them to delay or avoid surgery—and the risks, downtime, and costs that go along with it. However, if the symptoms persist or worsen after several weeks of non-surgical therapy, surgical treatment may be considered. The skilled spine surgeons at AOSMI utilize advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, which can lower the risk of surgery and lead to a quicker recovery.
