Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine

CU Medicine's Orthopedic surgeons provide comprehensive spine care to the citizens of the Rocky Mountain Region including neurosurgery and orthopedic spine surgery, physical and rehabilitation medicine, and alternative medicine therapies. The Orthopedic Spine Division provides state-of-the-art surgical intervention from fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons. Our surgeons are thoroughly trained and experienced in treatment of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine.

Treatment of spine-related pain typically involves conservative measures such as rest, physical therapy, medications, therapeutic injections, and alternative therapies; however, when these fail, surgery may be indicated.

We specialize in spine from the basic disc herniation to disc replacement, and motion preservation to complex spine care, including treatment of patients who have had unsuccessful treatment elsewhere. We also see patients who have been told that their condition is too complex for surgical treatment or who have had previous failed surgery, and will provide surgical opinions.
