Types of Spine Care

Different types of physician specialists and staff may care for spine patients, depending on their particular condition and stage of treatment. Surgeons, neurologists, physiatrists (rehab specialists), pain specialists, neuroradiologists and physical therapists may all be involved with a patient’s care.

Spine Surgery Expertise

For patients needing surgical treatment, spine surgery is now available at Providence St. Peter Hospital for problems involving the spinal cord, spinal column and surrounding nerves. Treatment is provided by our expert surgical team, made up of neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons.

Each surgeon has extensive experience in surgical techniques for the spine, with medical training gained at top institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and Baylor University. Procedures they perform range from the routine to the complex and include:

  • Discectomy
  • Foramenotomy
  • Laminectomy
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery
  • Spine fusion
  • Spinal disc replacement

Program Expansion for Spine Surgery

At Providence St. Peter Hospital, we have greatly expanded our capability to provide complex spine surgery in other ways, too. Our operating room and staffing schedules have been adapted to accommodate the growing program.

We’ve increased the size of the surgical team supporting our surgeons during surgery. And after surgery, more nurses are available to care for patients as well. (Read our Case Profiles for more information about three recent spine surgeries).
