BayCare Clinic offers comprehensive spine care for a full range of spinal conditions, including acute injuries, degenerative conditions of the neck and back, as well as spinal fractures and tumors. We offer the most advanced spine care available for back and neck problems, and are recognized as innovators in the region. For example, we were the first to use minimally invasive spinal fusion and artificial disc replacement to treat degenerative disc disease.
Whether we recommend spine surgery or other treatments, our goal is to minimize pain and return the patient to his or her normal life as soon as possible.
Our spine specialists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic spine disorders, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Herniated disc (also known as bulging disc, ruptured disc, or slipped disc)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Spinal fractures
- Spinal infections
- Spinal tumors
BayCare Clinic offers the full range of non-operative, minimally invasive and surgical management for most spine conditions. Non-operative treatment approaches may include physical therapy, therapeutic injections, or pain management. When spine surgery is required, we use safe, effective treatments, including the latest medical advances and minimally invasive procedures.
Back Pain Relief
Back pain is the #1 reason people miss work and the #2 reason they visit a doctor. In many cases, back pain is the result of a spinal problem. Sometimes back pain resolves itself over time with conservative, non-invasive treatments. But when conservative approaches fail, back surgery may be necessary.
Treatment options include fusions, minimally invasive spine surgery or traditional open back surgery. The neurosurgeons at BayCare Clinic will help you determine if spine surgery is right for you.
