About the Virtua Brain and Spine Institute

Your spine is a complicated combination of nerves and bone that, when injured, require very specialized care. Orthopedic surgeons from Virtua and neurosurgeons from Penn Medicine have come together to review cases and determine the best possible solution for each patient.  

Not only do our fellowship-trained surgeons work together on cases, they work together on research to ensure the approach and techniques used are always evolving. The surgeries, which are tailored to the patient, can include minimally invasive options. All rooms are private for a more comfortable recovery.

All of the Institute staff are dedicated to brain and spine care, so they have a special understanding of patient needs. And, to help ensure a smooth process, patient navigators are here for you throughout your journey.

The Brain and Spine institute provides advanced care for conditions such as:

  • Trauma
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Scoliosis
  • Fractures
  • Pinched nerves
  • Tumors in the spine
  • Osteoporosis
  • Revisional surgery
  • Work-related injuries

Patients benefit from advanced technology and state-of-the-art treatment of cranial conditions including brain injuries, tumors, and a wide range of spinal cord injuries, as well as conditions such as Parkinson's disease, epilepsy and stroke.
