Spine Center

Comprehensive. Individualized Care.

The Stormont-Vail Spine Center puts emphasis on educating patients so they know what to expect when they have a spine procedure. The information prepares the patient for his or her surgical experience from consultation to surgery and post-operative care. When surgery is scheduled, patients receive a Stormont-Vail Spine Center Handbook. Prior to surgery each patient, with his or her champion, is encouraged to attend an education session.

A specialized team of surgeons and support staff work together to provide comprehensive, individualized care – from the initial consultation, to surgery, through the final day of physical therapy. The Spine Center staff strives to help patients achieve a fast, full recovery through an immediate focus on mobility and returning to normal activities. The Stormont-Vail Spine Center team includes:

  • Neurosurgeons and orthopedists;
  • An expert nursing team;
  • Physical and occupational therapists;
  • Dietitians, social workers and case managers; and
  • Staff consultants, as needed, in pain management and chronic illness support.

Surgery and treatments include: surgery, including minimally invasive surgery; disc replacement; physical and occupational therapy; pre- and postoperative care; and therapeutic massage.

Spine Disorders Treated include: degenerative discs (cervical, thoracic and lumbar); herniated discs (cervical, thoracic and lumbar); arthritis of the spine (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid); spondylolisthesis (spine instability); and osteoporosis.
