Spine and pain management

With back pain recognized as the single most common physical condition for which patients visit their doctor, our goal is to support you in providing the very best care for these patients. We offer the only comprehensive, interdisciplinary program in West Michigan with the entire care team together, in one location, to ensure functional recovery for each patient using the therapies most appropriate for their condition and unique needs. Our expertise allows successful treatment of a diverse range of spinal conditions, including the most complex. A unique intake process matches each patient with most appropriate specialist who coordinates his or her entire treatment plan. Our main outpatient location is Grand Rapids, with an additional spine surgery clinic in Greenville. Inpatient elective spinal surgery is performed at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids.
