Spine Center


Since 1982, St. Mary's Spine Center has provided patients with excellent care. We take pride in our experience as the oldest continuously operating spine center in the western U.S. Today, we continue to be known as San Francisco's premier Spine Center, with the latest procedural innovations and holistic, well-coordinated care.


Our team of doctors, pain management specialists, physical therapists, and registered nurses works closely to offer you continuity of care and education as you follow along your path to recovery. We focus on you as an individual and your specific needs.

Experts In Less Invasive Treatment

Of all patients treated at the Spine Center, only 6% have needed surgical treatment. We offer a full spectrum of treatment options, including less invasive techniques such as:

  • Exercise
  • Manual manipulation
  • Medication management
  • Nutritional counseling

Advanced Surgical Techniques

If you require surgery, we use leading-edge surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery that can dramatically reduce recovery time. Surgeons at the Spine Center invented the X-STOP implant for the treatment of spinal stenosis. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure and the "Pro-Disc" artificial disc replacement procedure, also developed by our surgeons, are nationally recognized.

In 2014, St. Mary’s began using the Mazor Renaissance™ guidance system, offering increased safety and precision during a wide range of spine procedures. St. Mary’s Spine Center is the only Bay Area hospital to utilize this leading-edge technology for spine surgery.
