Novant Health Total Spine Specialists is devoted solely to diseases, disorders and injuries affecting the spine. Our physiatrists, orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons are committed to uncovering the root of your neck or back pain, and determining the best course of treatment for you.
Who comes to Novant Health Total Spine Specialists?
Millions of Americans suffer from back pain, neck pain or sciatic nerve pain caused by accidents, injuries, normal use or genetic conditions. Often, this pain radiates from the back or neck into the arms or legs. This can cause numbness in the limbs and, in severe cases, can be debilitating.
Patients who come to Novant Health Total Spine Specialists are looking for pain relief. Some have tried back pain exercises or other therapy; others have been referred by physicians or chiropractors who see the benefits of a medical diagnosis and treatment plan; others have suffered for years with no treatment. By calling Total Spine Specialists, you can start down the road to recovery immediately. We see new patients as quickly as possible (click here to schedule an appointment), and you will see a physician, not a physician assistant, at your first appointment. This helps us come to a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that works for you without delay.
You do not need a referral to be seen by a physiatrist, orthopaedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon at Total Spine Specialists.
A physiatrist (a doctor who is focused on nerves, muscles and bones, and treats injuries and illnesses that affect how you move) will likely be your first point of contact. This physician will work to determine the cause of your pain and outline treatment options, which might include nonsurgical interventions, minimally invasive surgery or traditional surgery. Depending on the treatment option you choose, you might be seen by one of our board-certified spinal surgeons or neurosurgeons.
