The Best Spine Physician is Closer Than You Might Believe

Kris E. Radcliff, M.D. January 19th, 2017

The spine is critical to the health and mobility of the body. Don't leave it's care up to just any doctor. Here's how to find the best spine physician...

The spine plays a critical role in the body's ability to coordinate all kinds of actions and reactions. From supporting the weight of the head and stabilizing the entire torso, to housing the incredibly important spinal cord, the stack of vertebrae we know as "the spine" is worth protecting at all costs.

So, when we're talking about the spine, we're talking about one of the most complex parts of the human body - one that should be left to the care of only the most qualified physicians. In fact, the very best spine physician will be an expert in their field, and a fellowship-trained specialist with years worth of successful surgeries completed.

Finding the Best Spine Physician

When to Go

For patients with neck or back pain that continues for several weeks, the best course of action is to make an appointment with a spine physician. If you've already seen a physician and tried a variety of nonsurgical approaches with no relief, it's time to set up an appointment specifically to discuss surgery.

If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, it's important to see a doctor as quickly as possible:

  • Debilitating or immobilizing back or neck pain

  • Deformity of the spine

  • Fever, chills, or weight loss associated with back pain

To determine if you have a spinal condition and what treatment methods are available for you, an evaluation by one of the highly trained spine specialists at Rothman Institute is your best bet.

  • Rothman Institute Cartilage Restoration Center of Excellence

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
