Why Choose Duke
Specialized Approach to Treating Back Pain
Our spine specialists include physiatrists, chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons. Each takes a specialized approach to treating pain in the lower back, middle back, upper back, and neck area. Depending on the cause of your back pain, your team may also include psychologists, who can help you cope with the mental health aspects of back pain, or acupuncturists.
Nonsurgical and Surgical Options
We offer medications, many types of back injections, nerve blocks, physical therapy, and manual manipulation. We also specialize in spinal cord stimulation, a procedure that relieves pain by surgically placing electrodes on your spinal cord. Our spine surgeons perform disc replacement to relieve pain, complex reconstructive surgeries for scoliosis, and procedures to remove delicate spinal cancer lesions.
