Norton Leatherman Spine Services and Conditions

Norton Leatherman Spine treats a broad range of spine conditions without surgery. If your condition requires surgery, our specialists have decades of experience, training and a worldwide reputation for providing excellent care.

Nonsurgical treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, ice, heat, massage and physical therapy can improve function and reduce pain. Although these alternatives will not cure any spinal disease or condition, they can help relieve your symptoms.

The specialists at Norton Leatherman Spine have the training and expertise to know when your condition needs surgery and when it doesn’t.

Surgery is considered only if you have nerve damage or the condition does not heal after a long period of time.

If surgery is needed, Norton Leatherman Spine specialists will consider advanced minimally invasive procedures that allow for less postoperative pain and a faster recovery.

Norton Leatherman Spine physicians are leaders in Louisville and Southern Indiana using minimally invasive techniques.  Our surgeons use robotic assistance to more precisely reach and treat diseased tissue.
