Welcome to the Memorial Health Spine Center. Spine surgery may be an option for you if you experience back or neck pain that is so severe, it disrupts your quality of life.

Spine surgery may also be necessary if you have broken or cracked vertebrae, damaged or slipped discs, spinal tumors, or a spinal deformity such as scoliosis.

At Memorial Health University Medical Center, our experienced team offers both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for a variety of conditions. Our goal is to help you get back to a fulfilling, productive life.

Memorial Health Spine is a center for spine surgery and the treatment of spine conditions. We proudly offer comprehensive surgical and non-surgical options to bring relief to people suffering from back and neck pain.

It is important for people undergoing spine surgery to have a clear understanding of the surgical process, preparation, and recovery. At Memorial Health Spine, we have found that well-informed patients and families are key to a successful surgery. Our pre-surgical class prepares patients and families for surgery and introduces them to our interdisciplinary care team, including the surgical team, specially trained nurses, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, case managers, and a care coordinator.

Memorial Health Spine is part of the award-winning Memorial Health University Medical Center. We will work closely with you to ensure the best results and your overall satisfaction.

Pre-surgical classes are held every Wednesday and Friday at 10:00am Call (912) 350-0186 for more information.
