Back Pain

Is your back keeping you from the things you love?

Spinal problems are among the most common—and challenging—orthopedic conditions and often encompass neurological issues. Our team of physiatrists, anesthesiologists, physical therapists, pain-management specialists, nurses, and specially trained spine surgeons is trained and equipped to assess and treat spinal problems resulting from injuries, genetic abnormalities and diseases such as arthritis, sciatica and scoliosis.

Our approach to back & spine treatment

Whenever possible, we strive to achieve positive results using nonsurgical or minimally invasive techniques. When surgery is needed, our surgeons employ an image-guided stereotactic surgery system and closely monitor the spinal cord and other nerves to minimize the risk of neurological complications.

Florida Medical Center is one of the few hospitals in Broward County to have The O-arm® Intra-operative Imaging System.

Meet the O-Arm

In the modern OR, intra-operative imaging is a vital tool for the surgical team striving for the best patient outcomes. The O-arm® Intra-operative Imaging System can be used before, during and after surgery and is designed to bring intra-operative imaging to a new level. Benefits may include:

  • Fast access to real-time, multi-plane 3D images (as well as 2D images) when the surgeons need them most, for full support of the unique workflow of spinal procedures
  • Improved safety for the surgeon and staff
  • Confidence in the achievement of surgical goals and hardware therapy placement, potentially eliminating revision surgeries
  • Improved visualization, allowing surgeons to complete complex and minimally invasive procedures with ease
