Spine Centers of Excellence

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. 


Spine Center of Excellence Northern CaliforniaDignity Health Neurological Institute is home to the only two Spine Centers of Excellence north of the Bay Area as designated by The Joint Commission.

Team-Centered Care for Spine Conditions

At the Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California, we realize the importance of your spine's health and provide comprehensive 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.
