Our goal is to provide quality surgical & non-surgical care, getting each patient back to a healthy and active lifestyle as soon as possible. With Neurosurgery & Spine Associates you have the unique option of being referred directly to one of our Neurosurgeons for surgical consultation or, if preferred, referral to our Physiatrist for conservative management of neurosurgical disorders. In most instances patients will not need immediate surgery.
Our services include the diagnosis and treatment of surgical disorders of the brain, spine, and peripheral nervous system. We are current on all the latest technology, including the latest in minimally invasive spine surgery.

Did You Know?
Humans are born with
33 separate vertebrae. By adulthood, we typically have 24 due to the fusion of the vertebrae in the sacrum.
The top 7 vertebrae that form the neck are called the cervical spine and are labeled C1-C7. The seven vertebrae of the cervical spine are responsible for the normal function and mobility of the neck. They also protect the spinal cord, nerves and arteries that extend from the brain to the rest of the body.
The upper back, or thoracic spine, has 12 vertebrae, labeled T1-T12. .
