The Spine Center at New England Baptist Hospital
The Spine Center at New England Baptist Hospital offers care to patients with:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Cervical and lumbar radiculopathies
- Cervical and lumbar spinal stenosis
- Compression fractures
- Persistent problems that have failed past treatments
- Serious spine problems for which surgery is being considered
The Spine Center is staffed by physiatrists (medical specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation), all of whom have subspecialized in the evaluation and management of spinal disorders. Our physiatrists are recognized experts in the evaluation of complex spine disorders, and when needed, offer direct access to the expertise of New England Baptist radiologist, neurologists and other specialists. Our physiatrists stress the selective use of evidence-based treatments for all spinal disorders, and are internationally recognized for our research-driven approach to exercise as a treatment for spinal disorders. We help our patients initiate their selected care through continued collaboration with New England Baptist radiologists, anesthesia pain specialists, and physical therapists. For our patients for which spine surgery is appropriate, we help with timely access to New England Baptist neuro and orthopedic spine surgeons.
"Good healthcare decisions are guided by knowledge."
Information empowers people. Our clinicians are firmly committed to educating patients about all aspects of their spine problems including all paths to recovery. Our patients tell us that science-based information addresses their concerns about the spine and liberates them from the constraints that their problems have causes in their daily lives. We believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions as to their path forward.
Likewise, we believe that healthcare providers must continuously grow their knowledge in order to provide optimum spine care to our patients. We incorporate this belief into our daily work through spine research, and by constantly exploring and exchanging medical literature and ideas among our colleagues. We are medical educators and share our knowledge with other healthcare providers, including physiatry residents, pain and physiatry fellows, physical therapists and visiting healthcare scholars from other medical disciplines. Our physiatrists are academically affiliated with Harvard Medical School.
