Dr. Hall joined Flagstaff Bone and Joint and started the Spine Care Program in November 2007. Spine Care at Flagstaff Bone and Joint is proud to have Dr. Hall and his spine expertise alongside the other MD’s and their sub-specialties.

This makes life difficult and frustrating for the patient. This is why Dr. Hall is passionate about the well-being of the patient and will use the latest techniques and personalized care to correctly diagnose and treat the problem. Whether the patients’ injury was caused by a snowboarding accident or osteoporosis, Dr. Hall will do his best to return the patient to pre-injury health as quickly as possible.

Artificial Disc Replacement is Here
Dr. John F. Hall is having tremendous success with artificial disc replacement (ADR) surgeries in lieu of spinal fusions. Spinal fusion is the conventional surgical options for treating degenerative disc disease, but it can decrease the spine’s overall range of motion, thereby increasing stress on adjacent discs and accelerating their degeneration. For the right candidate, ADR intervention offers the possibility of complete restoration of disc height and removal of the existing disc. All this is accomplished while maintaining stability and mobility of the joint. For more information or to schedule an appointment please call Dr. Hall’s office at (928)773-2280.
