Our Back, Neck, and Spine Specialists
Having dedicated their practices to the specialized field of spine surgery and spine care, our specialists have undergone extensive training and education to provide expert surgical and nonsurgical care. Committed to learning the newest procedures, surgeries, treatments, and less invasive techniques, our spine surgeons are highly skilled in performing spine surgery, and all of our doctors are experts in providing care for the spine.
Patients with new acute or chronic neck or back pain will be evaluated and triaged by either Dr. Meier or Dr. Jones. Each patient will receive an extensive workup to determine the cause of their pain. The assessment may include EMG/nerve conduction studies, diagnostic injection therapy, physical therapy, or additional imaging. Our specialists will then work with each patient to determine the appropriate nonoperative treatments available for their pain, or if indicated, a surgical consultation with one of our spine surgeons will be set up.
If spine surgery is required to relieve your pain, rest assured that our spine surgeons have extensive training and experience in performing spine surgery, including surgery that is less invasive.
