Expertise in all aspects of spine care

Norton Neuroscience Institute’s spine specialists are trained in all aspects of spine care. They have expertise in caring for all parts of the body affected by spine conditions, including the bone, ligaments, discs, spinal cord and nerves.

Our team of spine surgeons are board certified neurosurgeons with multiple years of training and expertise in treatment of all forms of spinal pathology.

Surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for spinal conditions

We offer a holistic approach to spine care, beginning with advanced testing and customizing a treatment plan for each patient. Spine conditions often can be treated without surgery, so we start with the least invasive approach to care.

Treatments may include physical therapy and pain management. Minimally invasive surgery, spinal cared stimulator (SCS) or traditional spine surgery also may be options when other treatments do not work.
