​Pain is an individualized experience. It's a connection of the physical and emotional perception regarding our state of well being. Pain treatment is ​a multidisciplinary effort. In the Pain Center, we evaluate the person as a whole, never by body parts alone. Spine care for each patient is unique and tailored to each patient's individual needs. You have the support of specialists with expertise ranging from musculoskeletal medicine to neurosurgical surgery who use a combination of treatment options tailored ​to your specific spine problem.
