Finally a center of excellence for back & neck pain Research has proven that complex health issues are best treated by Centers of Excellence that focus on a single specialty. For example, the best care for back and neck pain requires a team approach. Kenai Spine combines under one roof two fellowshiptrained spine surgeons (the highest level of medical education possible), a Mayo Clinic-trained MD who specializes in nonsurgical care and spine specialized physical therapists. Kenai Spine, founded in 2011, has helped thousands of back and neck pain sufferers across Alaska get back to activity, most of them with non-surgical treatment options. If spine surgery is necessary, the spine surgeons operate through minimally invasive instruments the width of a ballpoint pen — to reduce the length of incision, shorten time in the hospital and speed return to activity with a less painful recovery. Kenai Spine is one of few centers in the U.S. to use advanced O-arm surgical navigation technology. Some patients qualify for the most advanced artificial discs, such as Mobi-C and Prodisc-C, which lessen the risk of future disc herniations. Want to learn more? Visit us at KenaiSpine.com.
