SLUCare fellowship-trained spinal surgeons are experts in treating spinal deformities and disorders, and in reconstructive surgery of the spine.
From diagnosing curvature of the spine in adolescents to treating geriatric degenerative diseases of the spine, SLUCare provides comprehensive back and neck care for children and adults. We offer the latest surgical techniques for both trauma-related and degenerative spinal problems, using treatments ranging from small "keyhole" incisions on discs to major reconstruction of the spine.
We also treat a spectrum of spinal fractures and spinal cord injuries and are among the St. Louis region's most experienced doctors treating Level I spinal injuries.
SLUCare spine surgeons work collaboratively across specialties, coordinating care to help patients manage their back and neck pain. Often, that means helping patients find relief without surgery. Treatment options may include physical therapy, activity modification, medication or injections. Our team will help you create a plan that fits your needs and your lifestyle.
Whatever your diagnosis or choice of treatment, you can count on your SLUCare team for compassionate, supportive care that eases your symptoms and helps to restore your quality of life.
