Conditions We Treat

The Johns Hopkins Neurosurgical Spine Center brings together the best minds in diagnosis and management of spine disorders, including:

Degenerative spine conditions: inflammatory degenerative conditions, including disc disease, spinal stenosis, facet joint arthritis and spondylolisthesis

Spinal deformitiesscoliosis and other deformities affecting the spine

Spine tumorschordomas and other tumors that affect the spinal cord and bony structures of the spine, including metastases from other areas

Spinal trauma and infectioninitial trauma, compression, instability and spinal infections

Minimally Invasive Techniques

“Minimally invasive” is an approach that informs every procedure we perform. Our surgeons understand that smaller incisions, more efficient methods and less disruption of healthy tissue can result in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery for you.

With that in mind, wherever and whenever possible, we use techniques that lessen the impact of surgery while pursuing optimal relief and wellness.

From minor procedures to the most complex surgical treatments, our surgeons employ the newest technologies and methods to help you get back to your normal life as soon as possible.

Renowned, Multidisciplinary Expertise

Back pain affects many aspects of your life and requires a multidisciplinary approach that treats the whole person. Our spine specialty teams comprise world-renowned neurosurgeons and neurologists who collaborate with specialists in pain management, orthopaedic surgery, physical medicine, rehabilitation and other disciplines. 

In addition, clinical and scientific advancements from Johns Hopkins research laboratories help inform your surgeons' recommended plan for you. For instance, with the assistance of advanced intraoperative monitoring during surgery, we are able to safely remove spinal tumors that were once believed to be inoperable.
