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 developed an Orthopedic 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 more conservative practices such as physical or therapy or cortisone injections when inappropriate.

Why Choose Piedmont Medical Center’s Orthopedic Spine Program?

  • Expert Orthopedic and Spine Care Team – The orthopedic team at Piedmont Medical Center is one of the top orthopedic and spine care teams in the country.
  • Comprehensive Spine Care Services – Our orthopedic spine program is a full continuum of spine management. From diagnosis of the 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 orthopedic and 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 Orthopedic Spine Program offers surgical treatment.
