Specialized Orthopedic Spine Care – across an Entire System of Care

If you are suffering from neck or back pain, or having issues with mobility because of a spinal condition, we can help. Our team of orthopedic spine specialists are board-certified and fellowship-trained with the expertise to treat all spine conditions – from the more common to the most complex. Especially for those spine conditions that worsen over time and cause persistent or recurrent pain, we first start with in-depth diagnostic analysis, including a complete physical evaluation to determine the exact cause of your neck, middle or lower back pain or functional issues. Our team understands the importance of really spending time with patients to evaluate the problem, understand specific symptoms, review the clinical history of your condition, evaluate previous procedures and explore all possible sources of pain.

With decades of experience in orthopedic and spine specialization, Northside Orthopedic Institute provides the seamless coordination of care you need – through an extensive network of state-of-the-art facilities that are conveniently located near you. We offer a team approach, coordinated across our system of care, including:

  • Advanced imaging capabilities
  • Diagnostic expertise
  • Pain management solutions
  • Surgery specialization
  • Rehabilitation for improved recovery

If surgery is a part of your treatment plan, you can rest assured that surgery at Northside Orthopedic Institute offers every available technology that adds to the success and safety of the surgery. Our facilities are designed with patient comfort in mind, including rehabilitation - all available right here at Northside.

Extensive Worker’s Compensation Expertise

Orthopedic injuries of the back, shoulder and knees are some of the most common workplace injuries. Our team has decades of experience and specialized skill in the treatment of worker’s compensation injuries – especially spinal injuries. Our team is respected in the field as fair to both the injured worker and the employer. We provide care with a focus on the long-term health of the injured worker, but we also encourage the injured worker to return to work as soon as it is medically appropriate. You can count on Northside Orthopedic Institute for consistency and quality of care if you have been injured on the job.

Improving Neck and Back Pain with Expert Diagnosis and Effective Treatment

The most critical aspect of orthopedic spine care is an accurate diagnosis. Some of our patients come to us with painful symptoms or mobility issues and others have a specific diagnosis due to a previous evaluation. Our team can help determine the most appropriate treatment path for improved recovery.

If you are experiencing continued pain after a previous surgery – come to us for a reevaluation. We welcome the opportunity to identify problems that have not been addressed or provide spine pain management solutions to improve your quality of life.
