The comprehensive and sophisticated spine service brings together subspecialists from multiple disciplines to provide expert diagnosis and treatment for individuals with disorders of the back and neck.

Spine and neck problems include:

  • Pain
  • Tumors
  • Congenital conditions
    • Herniated disks

The Penn Orthopaedic Spine Service relies on conservative treatment measures whenever possible, avoiding surgery when feasible. Surgery is recommended only when non-surgical treatment cannot achieve the desired results. When surgery is needed, minimally invasive techniques are available.
