Orthopedic Neck, Spine, and Back Specialist

Effective orthopedic care comes with expertise and skilled treatment options. Finding a highly qualified orthopedic physician is one of the most important measures you can take to ensure successful treatment and long-term relief.

Many EmergeOrtho specialists are board-certified and have completed advanced training in the back, spine, and neck. That means that each spine doctor on the EmergeOrtho team has the skills and expertise to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions affecting the neck and spine.

Like many other orthopedic conditions, neck and spine problems may worsen if patients delay treatment. With that in mind, we encourage patients experiencing back or neck pain to seek care for any ailment.

Expert Diagnosis and Treatment From a Back, Neck, & Spine Specialist

At EmergeOrtho, our neck and spine doctors treat a wide range of conditions. Some such injuries include strains and sprains of the neck and back, traumatic injuries, sciatica, scoliosis, herniated discs, slipped vertebrae, nervous system disorders, fractures, spinal instability, sacroiliac disorders, and chronic back or neck pain.

While our healthcare specialists can treat many neck and back conditions nonoperatively, surgery may represent the best means for long-term relief for some patients. Our team of neck and spine doctors provides advanced surgical treatments, which include spinal decompression (laminectomy), spinal fusion, scoliosis correction, sacroiliac fusion, kyphoplasty, and spinal cord stimulator implantation. EmergeOrtho orthopedic surgeons utilize both conventional and minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Our comprehensive treatment plans include physical therapy, pain management services, electrodiagnostic testing with EMGs and NCVs, and advanced spinal imaging with digital X-ray and MRI services.
