Spine Institute

Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance

At Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance, back support means more than performing procedures. It means giving you the full support of experts in every aspect of back and neck care. It means using conservative and minimally invasive approaches whenever possible, and corrective surgical treatments when necessary. It means providing pre-op classes to help you prepare for surgery, and the latest rehabilitation therapies to help you recover quickly and safely. And it means streamlining every step, from evaluation through treatment, to ease your way through the process.

In our Spine Program, we pair you with a spine-care coordinator who works with you to consider all of your options – because back support means more here.
