The board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians of the Chicago Spine Center at Weiss Memorial Hospital care for a wide range of back and spine conditions, from cervical spine disorders and degenerative disc diseases to scoliosis, spine trauma and tumors. When surgery is necessary, our highly experienced orthopedic surgeons employ the latest surgical techniques to stabilize painful joints, decompress pinched nerves, fuse bones and correct deformities. When appropriate, minimally invasive surgery is used to perform smaller-scale spinal procedures to enable an easier and faster recovery period.
