The spine specialists at Scripps — both orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons — provide some of the most advanced minimally invasive spine surgery and other surgical options, including spinal fusion, artificial disc replacement and robotic spine surgery. Our physicians and surgeons who specialize in spine conditions are nationally recognized for their expertise, which has helped Scripps be named among the nation's top 50 hospitals in eight specialties, including orthopedics, by U.S. News & World Report.
The spine surgeons at Scripps treat many types of back injuries, neck pain and spine conditions, including lower back pain, sciatica, scoliosis, herniated disc and spinal stenosis.
Scripps hospitals, doctors and sports and physical rehabilitation facilities deliver advanced spinal care. Treatments for the neck and back include non-surgical and surgical approaches for spinal decompression, spinal stabilization and pain relief.
Common types of spine surgical procedures include:
- Minimally invasive spine procedures
- Spinal fusion
- Spinal reconstruction or revision
- Artificial disc replacement
Because not all injuries or conditions require surgery, Scripps clinicians work with patients to help them understand how lifestyle changes and non-invasive approaches may offer significant neck and back pain relief. Our spine specialists can help you determine which of these treatments may be right for you.
Scripps orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons participate in research and clinical trials for new devices and procedures to improve treatments for patients with disc degeneration, including the use of artificial discs, bone morphogenic proteins (BMP) and other innovative therapies.
