Approach to Care

Our UM Spine Network experts collaborate on everything from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation and patient education. Patients benefit from this collective knowledge, receiving a comprehensive care plan that is tailored around their needs. If plans call for additional expertise, patients are seamlessly connected within the network to surgeons who are skilled in highly specialized treatments.

Our surgeons know when to operate, but more importantly, they know when not to operate.  With every step, patients receive safe, superior care.

  • Advanced diagnostic and surgical technology
