Our Spine Center team is comprised of a wide range of specialists who can see you through your treatment plan from diagnosis to rehabilitation. Our expert team includes:

  • Physiatrists—Physicians trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions. Physiatrists use a variety of approaches to treat back and neck pain non-surgically, including interventional spine procedures. These specialists are often your first contact in the treatment process.

  • Spine Surgeons—Experts in either neurosurgery or orthopaedic surgery who focus exclusively on conditions affecting the spine that cannot be relieved through other means. Each patient is first carefully evaluated to achieve the most effective and long-lasting outcome through the most appropriate minimally invasive or complex surgical technique.

  • Pediatric Spine Surgeons—Specialty surgeons with additional fellowship training in pediatric spine conditions. The MedStar Spine Center is one of the very few in the area to care for children aged 10 and up.

  • Psychologists—Experts who help patients cope with both the physical and emotional aspects of pain. Psychologists teach relaxation techniques, help patients build new coping skills and adopt lifestyle changes to help address pain-related anxiety or depression.

  • Physical Therapists—Rehabilitation specialists who work in hand-in-hand with your physician to address strengthening, flexibility, stabilization and mobility using techniques geared specifically for your condition. Within the Spine Center, and across our network of 50 conveniently located physical therapy sites, our spine therapists can help reduce your pain and restore function.
