Spine Conditions Treated

Spine Care Program Treats Common and Uncommon Spine Conditions

Holy Cross Hospital's spine care team treats many types of back and neck problems in adults. We diagnose and treat patients with complaints of neck pain and headache, lower back pain, and herniated disk symptoms, such as low back and leg pain known as lumbar radiculopathy.

Degenerative Conditions: We care for patients with such degenerative conditions as:

  • Cervical or lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Herniated cervical (neck) disk

  • Osteophytes, also called bone spurs

Inherited Spine Problems: We evaluate and treat patients with such inherited problems as scoliosis and adult deformity of the spine - and spine problems related to growing older, such osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
