In the past, physicians relied solely on MRI’s or CT scans for a diagnosis, but these tests may not reveal everything. Our minimally invasive spine specialists use a variety of precise tests to accurately diagnose the location and cause of symptoms. This allows our medical team to focus on the most effective and efficient treatment plan. Our non-surgical and surgical physicians work as a team to ensure patients receive the treatment they need in a timely manner. For information on our most common non-surgical procedures click here.
For certain patients and conditions, surgery may be the most effective treatment available. Our board certified spine surgeons specialize in neurosurgical spine surgery and orthopedic spine surgery. This is a unique combination in one practice. Indiana Spine Group surgeons are leaders in spine surgery, actively developing and refining the newest techniques for traditional and minimally invasive surgery and microsurgery.
