Low back pain and neck pain have become two of the major health problems of the modern era. Unfortunately, many people suffer from chronic back or neck pain that does not get better despite excellent traditional medical and surgical care. We developed the SpineCare Medical Group to help people with chronic spine pain.
SpineCare is a large group of physicians from different specialties who have come together to provide specialized care for patients with back and neck pain. We only treat spine problems, and as a result, our physicians have become highly specialized and very experienced. We use state of the art X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans, and spinal injections, and we can make an accurate diagnosis in almost every patient. Only then do we create a treatment plan that is specific for each patient.
At SpineCare, we emphasize arthroscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery when indicated, but we also perform more traditional surgeries, including fusions, using the newest techniques. We particularly specialize in treating patients who have had unsuccessful spine surgery.
We are committed to learn more about spine problems and to teach what we learn to others through our research and education division, the San Francisco Spine Institute. We actively engage in research that may ultimately lead to improved treatments of spinal disorders, and we are recognized internationally as one of the leading private practice research institutes for spine problems. To increase awareness of spinal disorders, we present educational forums for physicians, physical therapists, and the general public.
