Back Pain

Getting Your Life Back

Spine pain caused by an illness, sports injury, or trauma requires special care and treatment. At Piedmont Medical Center, we have a neurosurgical spine program to help patients suffering from spinal injuries or diseases of the spine.

The program aims at improving the quality of life of patients by potentially helping to alleviate pain through spine surgery or by recommending more conservative practices such as physical or therapy or cortisone injections when inappropriate.

Why Choose Piedmont Medical Center’s Neurosurgical Spine Program?

  • Expert Neurosurgical Spine Care Team – The neurosurgical spine team at Piedmont Medical Center is one of the top spine care teams in the country.
  • Comprehensive Spine Care Services – Our neurosurgical spine program is a full continuum of spine management. From diagnosis of disease to surgery and rehabilitation, our spine care services are aimed at providing the comprehensive treatment that a patient deserves.
  • Tailored Rehabilitation Programs – To ensure that the patient experiences a smooth recovery after surgery, Piedmont Medical Center’s physical therapists and nurses provide compassionate rehabilitative care to the patient.

Our team of expert neurosurgeons, physiotherapists, and nurses give special attention to the individual healthcare needs of patients and devise a treatment plan that accommodates their expectations of an independent, healthy life, and help them quickly recover and get back to the activities they love.

At Piedmont Medical Center, we often use non-invasive treatment methods that may help patients get back to their routine activities as early as possible. However, sometimes non-surgical treatments may fail to provide complete pain relief. For severe spinal conditions, our neurosurgical spine program offers compassionate care close to home.
