UAMS offers a complete range of services for the treatment of spinal conditions, whether they are due to an injury, degenerative condition, sports-related wear-and-tear, spinal tumors or a spinal deformity.
What Sets Us Apart
UAMS has a team of neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons and staff who specialize in surgery of the spine ranging from simple to complex. We have the latest technology, including the Globus Excelsius Robot which supports minimally invasive spine procedures for precise implant placement and minimal radiation exposure for both the surgeon and the patient.
Specialized Care for Each Patient
We have options for non-surgical cases that can include physical therapy and interventional pain management. UAMS also has functional neurosurgeons who collaborate with our spine surgeons for patients needing Neuromodulation to relieve chronic pain. This level of specialized, interdisciplinary, complete care is unique in the state.
A Multidisciplinary Program
Much of the spine program is housed within the UAMS Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, including the Department of Neurosurgery, the UAMS Interventional Pain Clinic and rehabilitation services like physical therapy that may be part of your spine treatment.
Spine patients at UAMS also benefit from the expertise of:
- A nonsurgical spine specialist
- Special nurses and nurse practitioners experienced in caring for spine issues
- Pharmacologists who have expertise in dealing with the medications that help with problems of the spine
