Our neurosurgeons work closely with everyone on your care team, including anesthesiologists, nurse specialists, physiatrists and rehabilitation therapists.
We’re part of the Providence Neurosciences Institute, which works with referring doctors and patients to customize and coordinate the best treatment and rehabilitation plan for you. You’ll benefit from top resources in one place — including specialized doctors, nurses and therapists that treat all brain and spine conditions.
We diagnose the source and cause of back and neck pain, spine disorders, injuries and many other conditions, including:
- Herniated (slipped) disks
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Spine and spinal cord tumors
- Spine fractures
We can resolve most spine problems without surgery. However, if you do need surgical care, know that our surgical team is top-notch.
Our surgeons use the most advanced techniques and technologies every day. We can treat many conditions with advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures. High-tech approaches like computer-guided 3D video let surgeons work with great accuracy in a less invasive way than traditional surgery. This means smaller incisions, shorter recovery times, less pain and better long-term results. Many people who have minimally invasive surgery return home the same day.
Surgical services we provide include:
- Artificial disk surgery
- Minimally invasive spinal procedures, such as kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty
- Spinal decompression
- Spinal fusion
- Spinal reconstructive surgery
We’ll work hard to ease and streamline your recovery. Providence Rehabilitation Services offers a full range of personalized care – including physical, occupational and speech therapies – in a variety of settings.
Our program ranks among the top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the nation. We provide more than 70,000 treatments each year, including care for severe injury, total joint replacements and spine procedures.
Services range from outpatient care and minor procedures to a wide variety of therapy needs. We’ll show you how to improve your strength, flexibility, walking skills and other basic abilities.
Through education, exercise and training, physical therapy helps you restore strength, range of motion, balance and gait. It can ease your transition home.
Occupational therapy helps you relearn how to do essential life tasks such as dressing, bathing and household chores in a way that is most healthy for your body and minimizes pain.

Non-surgical treatments provided include:
