Spine Treatments and Surgical Procedures

A better approach to treating back and neck disorders

We offer the latest conservative treatments along with minimally invasive surgical options. Patients can expect prompt appointments with leading specialists and individualized attention from the entire care team. This helps to ensure that every step of your experience – from diagnosis to rehabilitation – progresses smoothly and successfully.

San Diego’s Palomar Health Orthopedic and Spine Center offers the expertise and experience of sub-specialty trained orthopedic and neurosurgeons covering:

  • Micro-discectomy
  • Motion-sparing disc arthroplasty
  • Minimally invasive lumbar and cervical fusion
  • Spine tumor removal

Nearly a third of our surgical patients do not require instrumentation. When fusion is necessary, our surgeons use the most minimally invasive technique possible for:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Quicker recovery with less pain
  • Improved range of motion
  • Fewer complications

A Dedicated Team of Orthopedic Experts

When it comes to matters of the spine and neck, specialists at Palomar Health’s Orthopedic and Spine Center know it takes a thorough and detailed analysis to determine the exact cause of pain or discomfort. That’s why the Orthopedic and Spine Center’s team of spine experts includes neurosurgeons and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, interventional radiologists, pain management specialists and integrative medicine specialists.

The extensive training, vast experience, and state-of-the-art diagnostic tools which physicians apply when pinpointing the source of pain in these sensitive areas help ensure the most conservative remedies will be employed. Often, patients will find relief from pain with conservative treatment. However, when necessary, your physician will recommend the most minimally invasive surgery available, which promotes less blood loss and faster recovery.

No matter the path taken to achieve your goal, you can be assured that your needs are the most crucial factors taken into consideration by your specialist and health-care team.
