Spine care services
Living with chronic neck or back pain can make normal activities, such as bending or standing, extremely difficult. Our expert team of neurosurgeons are trained in diagnosing spine conditions to target the source of pain and provide relief to patients.
Our multidisciplinary spine teams include neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, pain physicians and nurses, who work together to provide a treatment plan tailored to the individual needs of our patients.
Common conditions treated
Our dedicated spine care teams treat a variety of cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine disorders, including:
- Disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Neck and back pain
- Spine infection
- Spinal stenosis
- Traumatic injuries
Expert surgeons perform multiple surgeries to correct spine conditions and relieve pain. Some of these surgeries include:
- Arthroplasty (disc replacement)—During a disc replacement surgery, surgeons will replace a damaged or worn disc with an artificial disc.
- Tumor removal—Surgeons perform tumor removals as a way to treat spine cancers.
- Surgery for traumatic injuries—When an individual has experienced trauma to an area of the spine, surgeons can sometimes mend the broken disc before a replacement is needed.
Collaborative spine care
At Appledore Medical Group, our spine care teams work together to provide patients in southeastern New Hampshire with a comprehensive treatment plan. One of the ways we do this is by using a virtual spine center.
The virtual spine center allows for a multidisciplinary approach to treating patients. Through the virtual spine center, we can collect patient records and share information with other physicians in our network to provide continuity of care. Our neurosurgeons understand that surgery may not be the only option to treat a spine condition, which is why they value collaboration with additional specialists, including:
- Physical therapists
- Rehabilitation physiatrists
- Primary care physicians
- Pain management anesthesiologists
- Interventional radiologists
Through this team approach, we can create a treatment plan that will give you the best chance to eliminate your pain and help correct spine conditions.
