Advanced Treatment to Get You Beyond Back Pain
As one of the most common symptoms that send people to their doctors, back pain affects just about all of us at some point in our lives.
Along with degenerative disc disease that occurs with normal aging, back pain can result from a herniated disc, osteoarthritis or spinal stenosis. The spine specialists at Virtua understand that every case of back pain is unique, and they’ve earned a reputation for uncovering the causes and offering solutions.
Virtua’s spine surgeons offer a high level of excellence. They perform more than 1,000 spinal procedures every year as part of the advanced care we provide for conditions such as trauma, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, scoliosis, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, fractures and pinched nerves, tumors in the spine, osteoporosis, and work-related injuries. Virtua Memorial Hospital has received an Aetna Institute of Quality designation for our spine surgery program, which reflects our outstanding care.
Partnership with Penn Medicine
Virtua has partnered with Penn Medicine to bring the region’s foremost leader in neurosurgical treatment and research to Virtua Memorial Hospital for spinal (back) and cranial (brain) procedures. The Penn Medicine Virtua Neurosciences Alliance is another way these two great health systems are working together in today’s challenging healthcare arena to ensure the highest level of care is available to the residents of South Jersey.
Whether your back pain came on suddenly or you’ve been struggling with it for some time, you can call on Virtua’s spine experts for diagnosis, treatment, and an opportunity for relief.
