Experts in back and spine care
Your spine is literally the backbone of good health. The spine serves as your body’s support structure. Plus, it protects your spinal cord and nerves, the complex network that controls your body’s actions and sensations.
Many people with spine problems have chronic back pain. This makes everyday activities like walking or driving a challenge. But spinal conditions do more than hurt. They may damage your spinal cord and nerves. Some conditions can lead to numbness or even paralysis.
Don’t let back problems keep you from doing what you love. Aurora BayCare has the region’s largest team of spine surgeons. Whether you’re dealing with a spinal fracture, a herniated disc, or a complex injury, we can help. New treatment options reduce pain and improve function, so you can get back to doing what you love.
World-Class Spine Care
Aurora BayCare is the region’s first and only Certified Spine Surgery Program. This certification recognizes excellence in spine surgery and marks us as one of the leading providers in the state.
Not surprisingly, Aurora BayCare is also home to the region’s largest team of neurosurgeon spine specialists. Here, our commitment to research and innovation means patients receive world-class treatment.
Getting rid of back and neck pain doesn’t always mean surgery. Many patients find relief with therapy, medications, or steroid injections. Our spine specialists will develop a custom treatment approach to offer the best results for you. If surgery is necessary, we offer the latest minimally invasive approaches.
For example, our spine surgeons were the first in the region using minimally invasive spinal fusion and artificial disc replacement to treat degenerative disc disease.
