The NEBH approach to treating back, neck, and spine pain is based on decades of researching new therapies and patient outcomes. As a rule, we try to avoid surgery. Common non-surgical treatments including pain-relieving procedures, thoughtful use of medications, and physical therapy are available through our Spine Center. Even if you have tried these treatment methods somewhere else, you should consult with one of our physiatrists and see if one of our treatment protocols is right for you. 90% of the patients who receive treatment at our Spine Center do not need surgery.
However, if surgery is the best option for relieving your pain and/or restoring function, you can take comfort in knowing NEBH performs more back, neck, and spine procedures than any other hospital in Massachusetts. We offer the full range of orthopedic and neurosurgical procedures, including minimally invasive surgeries, deformities, and revisions. In every case, we focus on ensuring that you have the best possible long-term outcome.
For some patients, NEBH offers surgery with robotic guidance which allows surgeons to precisely plan surgery in advance and then execute that plan with greater accuracy. This can be especially useful during complex or minimally invasive procedures.
