You. Improved.

The spine surgeons and physicians at OrthoCarolina have experience treating a wide variety of spinal problems in the cervical, lumbar and thoracic areas, including adolescent and adult scoliosis, disc problems including microdiscectomy, back pain, arthritis of the spine, spinal stenosis, spinal tumors, spinal fractures, and other spinal deformities.

Physicians collaborate as a team to provide a spectrum of cutting-edge interventions—ranging from physical medicine and rehabilitation to complex, minimally invasive spine surgery—with a compassionate approach that emphasizes partnering with and advocating for each patient.

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.
