At the Spine Clinic at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, our goal is to provide our patients with alternatives to back surgery, such as bracing, exercise, physical therapy or medication or when appropriate, minimally invasive procedures, such as precisely guided injection therapy. We develop comprehensive treatment plans to manage pain and improve function so patients can resume the everyday activities they love, get a better night’s sleep, or return to work, school, a hobby or a favorite sport.
If surgery is needed, we work closely with our Neurosurgery, Pain Management and Orthopedics colleagues in the Tufts MC Spine Center to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment for your unique spine condition.
Our physicians are consulted by specialists throughout Greater Boston for second opinions, and are frequently is sought by patients who have had “failed back surgeries.”
The range of back problems we diagnose and treat includes, but is not limited to:
- Lumbar (lower back) pain
- Cervical (neck region) pain
- Mid-back pain
- Compression fractures of the spine
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Idiopathic back pain (pain without a clearly identified cause)
