State-of-the-Art Spine Care Offers Treatment Options for Back, Neck Problems
Holy Cross Hospital's spine care program offers expert diagnosis and treatment for patients with problems related to the spine - back and neck. The program features the latest technology to pinpoint problems. While our team approach to care strives to find non-surgical approaches to treatment whenever possible, Holy Cross Hospital offers significant expertise in minimally invasive surgical procedures for back and neck injury and illness. Follow-up support is also part of the services offered, helping patients return to their normal activities as quickly as possible.
Full Range of Care: Our team of specialists is dedicated to helping patients throughout diagnosis, treatment and recovery. We focus on patients with spine problems, from chronic spine pain and disorders such as scoliosis and spinal stenosis, to patients with serious spinal damage, such as injury to the lumbar or cervical spinal cord.
Team Approach: The team strives to find the best treatment for each patient. This may include medical approaches to provide pain relief such as medication or physical therapy, or minimally invasive surgery for spinal stenosis or herniated disk.
Access to Resources: The Spine Center is supported by the full resources of Holy Cross Hospital, such as the hospital's geriatric program to help care for patients with age-related spine problems, our pain management team, and rehabilitation specialists.
Surgical Leadership: The spine care team also is actively involved in training surgeons from across the world in the latest back and neck surgery techniques at its GATE Institute. And we are continuously conducting research to help find better ways to decrease infections of the spine and improve surgical results.
