Low back pain and neck pain are among the most common of orthopedic health problems. Many people have chronic back or neck pain that does not get better even with excellent medical and surgical care.
At St. Mary, we have physicians who are highly specialized and experienced in treating patients with back and neck pain. We use state-of-the-art technology, including digital X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans to accurately diagnose orthopedic conditions. With an accurate diagnosis, a proper treatment plan can be created that is specific to the needs of each patient.
When necessary our highly skilled surgeons can perform traditional surgeries, including fusions, using the newest techniques, and arthroscopic surgery or minimally invasive procedures when indicated.
Our Pain Management Center also can provide relief to those with chronic back and neck pain.
To increase awareness of orthopedic and spinal disorders, St. Mary presents an annual educational conference for primary-care physicians, physical therapists, and other healthcare providers.
