Initial Consultation with Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialists

Patients typically begin their treatment plan by meeting with one our physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians to evaluate whether non-surgical treatment options, like physical therapy, medication, or injections, can provide relief. If surgery is determined to be the best course of treatment, you will be referred to one of our Massachusetts General Hospital-affiliated spine surgeons for expert care.

Our medical spine specialists are board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Medical spine specialists work in collaboration with physical therapists, neurology physicians and pain management specialists, and also consult weekly with our surgical spine specialists.

Surgical Approach

Our spine surgeons are specially trained in both minimally invasive and complex spine procedures and are affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). They work with patients to provide the least invasive, safest and most effective care. All follow the same processes and protocols used at MGH in Boston and collaborate in ongoing education and discussion about new treatment approaches and outcomes.
