The Spine Center at Southside Hospital
The Spine Center at Southside Hospital is the region’s only spine center with an interdisciplinary group of physicians working together to deliver state-of-the-art care for conditions affecting the spine. It has two co-directors -- one from each of our primary disciplines -- Cushing Neuroscience Institute and North Shore-LIJ Orthopaedic Institute. The center offers prompt medical and surgical evaluations, with excellent communication between physician and patient.
Patients at the center have access to a neurosurgeon, an orthopaedic surgeon, physical medicine and rehab services, a physiatrist and pain management services, and their progress is tracked on a thorough database to ensure the most complete treatment.
The Spine Center’s continuum of care goes from initial contact with our patients to a full range of surgical and interventional resources, including advanced technologies and procedures for non-invasive and invasive testing and surgical intervention.
We offer our patients state-of-the-art operating rooms, along with minimally invasive techniques that allow for quicker recovery and reduced risk of infection. In addition, the majority of our services are conveniently located on the Southside Hospital campus.
Conditions we treat include:
- Neck and lower back pain/strain
- Lumbar degenerative disc disease
- Spinal tumors
- Spinal fractures
