Delivering long-term solutions to spine problems

The Comprehensive Spine Center has multiple specialists, diagnostic tools and treatment options housed in one center to care for your spine. The goal of our multidisciplinary team is to help patients return to normal function by providing both non-surgical and surgical solutions to simple and complex spine problems. As part of the Ohio State Neurological Institute, our team is constantly exploring novel approaches for some of the most difficult spine-related medical challenges. Advanced care is offered for congenital, deformity, degenerative, and traumatic spinal disorders.


Our team includes board certified, fellowship-trained pain management experts, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and neurologists. Our surgeons perform more complex spine surgeries than any other medical center in central Ohio. We collaborate with our physical therapists, radiologists, rheumatologists, endocrinologists, psychologists and nurse practitioners—each who specialize in spine disorders and injuries—to restore you to maximum function.

Patients benefit from the insights and expertise of an entire clinical team that will diagnose the source of pain and help achieve the highest level of function possible with the least-invasive treatment. Patients also have the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research and clinical trials through our associations with national and international spine organizations.

Spine Conditions

Spine Conditions

Lumbar and Thoracic Instability We offer multiple treatment options for instability of the spine.

For instability of the spine, a general term for abnormal movement between vertebrae, we can explore nonoperative options, such as physical therapy and medication, as well as surgery when needed.

Spinal Surgery Complications Our team works together with you to formulate an individualized treatment plan.

If you’re experiencing ongoing pain from an unsuccessful surgery for back pain, or a “failed spinal surgery,” we can explore newer treatment options. The cause of failed spinal surgery may include:

  • Post-surgical complications
  • Recurrence of original cause
  • Nerve root compression or irritation
  • Scar tissue
  • Nerve damage or abnormal regeneration
  • Improper, inadequate or incomplete rehabilitation

Thoracic Spinal Stenosis We determine the source of your pain, accurately diagnose the severity of your condition and choose the least-invasive treatment.

After diagnosing you with a physical exam and imaging tests, we can offer medication, physical therapy, braces and/or surgery to relieve pressure and pain from thoracic spinal stenosis, a rare degenerative condition in which the spinal canal is narrowed in the upper middle back.
