The Spine Center at Johns Hopkins provides comprehensive care to our patients - from initial diagnosis to post treatment rehabilitation. We are at the forefront of surgical techniques and clinical research. The spinal neurosurgeons on our team are amongst the most skilled in the world in treating a wide array of spinal disorders, including spine and spinal cord tumors, spinal deformity, degenerative spinal disorders, and pediatric spinal disorders. We are also involved with the latest state-of-the-art minimally invasive and endoscopic surgical techniques.
Our collaborative team is comprised of world-renowned specialists. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, pain specialists, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians and therapists partner to develop a unique treatment plan individualized for each patient. We also participate in a joint program with orthopedic surgery, which allows a full spectrum of the most up-to-date approaches to spine care.
At Johns Hopkins, we are committed to offering the most advanced clinical and scientific expertise to our patients. The multi-disciplinary team of the Spine Center leads complex spinal reconstruction – from the removal of the most difficult of spinal cord, spinal column and sacral tumors, deformity correction, to multi-level fusion techniques for degenerative spinal disease. Additionally, with the assistance of advanced intraoperative monitoring during surgery, we are able to safely remove spinal tumors that were once believed to be impossible to remove.
We are very proud of our strong history in spinal care. In fact, the very first spinal operations, such as disk excision for the treatment of sciatica and anterior cervical disk removal, were pioneered right here at Johns Hopkins. As we build on this history and experience, we are poised to be at a center of spine care excellence now and in the future.
