Spine Surgery

0064The spine surgery program at UC Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is the referral center for the region. Physicians from throughout Southwest Ohio trust their patients with complex spine conditions to the care of the fellowship-trained experts in spine surgery at UC Health.

The same experts that handle the most complicated cases welcome patients with any spine condition, including:

  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Deformities
  • Curvature of the spine
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal instability
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal tumors
  • Spine infections
  • Traumatic spine fractures

Treatment Options Driven by Science and Results

Regardless of the severity of the problem, UC Health orthopaedic spine surgeons explore all treatment options to guide a patient toward the most effective and least disruptive treatment for his or her needs. UC Health surgeons are experts in nonsurgical, minimally invasive and traditional surgical approaches. That means they can chose the care that is the most appropriate and effective long term. The surgeons understand that if a less invasive procedure is not backed by evidence that it is effective, a second surgery or additional procedures needed later could cost the patient more time, money and pain in the long run.

Patient Focused Care

UC Health orthopaedic spine specialists are committed to caring for their patients personally and tracking their progress over time. Their involvement in research and education means they stay on the forefront of new techniques, and are constantly evaluating and challenging innovative procedures for their effectiveness in improving function and reducing pain.

Both shorter, routine surgeries and most complicated procedures can be performed at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, West Chester Hospital and our facility in Wilmington, Ohio. Office visits are also available at multiple locations.
