Your spine is the foundation for all other parts of your skeletal system. When injured or diseased, the spine can severely lower your quality of life and make going about your day-to-day activities extremely difficult.
Dignity Health Neurological Institute is home to the only two Spine Centers of Excellence north of the Bay Area as designated by The Joint Commission.
Here at the Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California, we realize the importance of your spine's health and provide comprehensive spine care in a collaborative environment. We combine careful diagnosis, education, physical therapy, medications and, if needed, interventions such as epidurals or surgical consultation, to get your spine in the best possible shape.
Mercy General Hospital and Mercy San Juan Medical Center are the only two hospitals north of the Bay Area to be designated by The Joint Commission as Spine Centers of Excellence. Mercy General Hospital is also designated as a Blue Distinction Center (BDC) for Spine Surgery, and Woodland Memorial Hospital is designated as a Blue Distinction Center+ (BDC+) for Spine Surgery, by Blue Cross Blue Shield. As a part of Dignity Health Neurological Institute's comprehensive spine care continuum, treatment options are also available at Mercy Hospital of Folsom. Our experienced team of neurosurgeons and spinal fusion surgeons can help with nearly any spinal condition. We treat spinal cord injuries, lumbar spinal stenosis and more.
