Patients facing spinal conditions may be relieved to learn that there are today many safe and effective treatment options for back conditions. In fact, many University Spine Center patients will actually discover that there may be more than one way to treat the problem. That’s why we created this website. Here you’ll find:

  • A wealth of articles on a wide range of treatment options
  • Medical terms for the treatments along with plain-language descriptions of how the treatment is performed
  • Illustrations to show why these treatments can help
  • Information on the most appropriate candidates for different types of treatments
  • A full range of treatment information, from non-surgical approaches to advanced, state-of-the-art operations

However, every patient is unique. There are many individual factors to be considered as you and your physician at the University Spine Center determine the best course of treatment for you. For that reason, we urge you to learn what you can and use this as the starting point for a discussion with your physician.
