Our Spine Surgeons Are Ready to Care for You

Sports Team


"The entire team, from office staff to surgical team, give you the best care available anywhere."

"I had spinal fusion surgery which allowed me to be pain free with tremendous range of motion from the moment I was allowed out of bed."

The Spine Team is committed to helping patients get back to doing what they love — utilizing the latest technological spine treatments for nonsurgical or surgical solutions.

The spine is a complex musculoskeletal structure that enables people to move and perform their everyday activities. When someone has neck or back pain this often limits what a person can do. OrthoConnecticut's fellowship-trained Spine Specialist Team is dedicated to treating and diagnosing patients with spine conditions that impact their everyday health. Whether you have a spinal deformity, injury, or disease, our spine team has the experience and expertise to diagnose and treat your issue through nonsurgical or surgical methods.
