SLUCare's fellowship-trained spinal surgeons are experts in treating spinal deformities and disorders, and in reconstructive surgery of the spine. We have perfected both minimally invasive and complex spinal procedures.
From diagnosing curvature of the spine in adolescents to treating geriatric degenerative diseases of the spine, SLUCare provides comprehensive back and neck care for children and adults. We offer the latest surgical techniques for both trauma-related and degenerative spinal problems, using treatments ranging from small "keyhole" incisions on discs to major reconstruction of the spine.
We also treat a spectrum of spinal fractures and spinal cord injuries and are among the St. Louis region's most experienced doctors treating Level I spinal injuries.
