Our spine surgeons specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of the spine including the neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and lower back (lumbar). We take care of all aspects of spinal disorders and injuries from degenerative to traumatic. Directed by highly trained and experienced spinal surgeons, the SMOC Spine Center finds most back pain patients can be treated non-operatively. Featuring an on-site fluoroscopy suite and alternative treatments such as acupuncture, the Spine Center makes treatment more convenient and effective for SMOC patients suffering from back pain. When surgery is necessary, SMOC has fellowship trained physicians who have received extensive education in new techniques to treat disorders of the entire spine, including total disc replacement surgery.

Spine Anatomy
