MRI

We look forward to serving you during your upcoming MRI at our Spine Center imaging facility. As a courtesy to our patients, OrthoCarolina representatives routinely verify your health insurance coverage prior to your appointment. We will also complete any prior notification and/or approval process that your carrier may require. In addition, we will provide you with an estimate of your expected financial liability based on the MRI order as instructed by your health insurance carrier. Please be advised that the estimate of financial responsibility provided to you is based on services performed and billed by OrthoCarolina only. The estimate does not include the charge associated with the interpretation of the MRI which is a service provided by Triad Radiology. Depending upon how your insurance company processes these charges, you may receive a bill from Triad Radiology as well.

At OrthoCarolina’s Spine Center, our fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons specialize – and excel – in one area. Nationally recognized for spinal care, we lead the field in research and in the number of procedures performed, including minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Our physician staff, comprised of eight dedicated spine surgeons and three physiatrists, is committed to providing the highest level of care to patients suffering from pain, numbness or weakness anywhere from the neck to the lower back. Many of the procedures performed are outpatient procedures or allow the patient to go home the following morning. Our spectrum of care ranges from nonsurgical management of spinal disorders to the most complex reconstructive procedures for patients with debilitating conditions making us the best spine care center in the region.

We perform more than 2,000 spine surgeries and nearly 4,000 interventional spine procedures each year.

At OrthoCarolina, we make it our goal to only hire the best spine physicians to care for our patients. In addition to regularly seeing patients, our current physicians are actively involved in research, including the development of spinal implants and bone substitutes, and they are instrumental in teaching these latest techniques to other physicians. Additionally, our physicians often serve as a 2nd opinion option for many patients.
Our spine surgeons and physicians have experience treating a wide variety of spinal problems in the cervical, lumbar and thoracic areas of patients in Charlotte:

  • Adolescent and adult scoliosis
  • Disc problems including microdiscectomy
  • Back pain
  • Arthritis of the spine
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal tumors

Pardon Our Progress

We are hard at work converting to a new Electronic Health Record.

As a result, our team members at our offices and on our phones are a bit slower than usual.

We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your OrthoCarolina experience.

Thank you.
