Back and Neck Pain Treatments
Non-surgical Spine Management
Most people with spine conditions find relief with conservative (non-surgical) treatments. At Kettering Health, our spine care team includes two pain management specialists. They can create a customized treatment plan that may include the following:
- Epidural steroid injections
- Nerve blocks
- Pain medication
- Pain pumps
- Physical therapy
Surgical Spine Care
If your symptoms don’t improve with conservative treatments, it may be time to consider surgery. We specialize in a range of spine procedures, many of which are minimally invasive.
Our team includes fellowship-trained spine surgeons with extensive experience in
- Discectomy: removal of an intervertebral disc
- Kyphoplasty: repair of fractured vertebrae
- Laminectomy: removal of the back part of a vertebra
- Spinal fusion: permanent fusion of two vertebrae together
Kettering Health Main Campus (formerly Kettering Medical Center) was the first hospital in the Midwest to use Brainlab Cirq® robotic arm for spine surgery.
The surgeon-controlled robotic arm provides excellent accuracy for drilling and hardware placement. These benefits often lead to better surgical outcomes.
