Spine surgery and care - New York Spine Care

While you may come in with mild to severe back or neck pain, our expert physicians can pinpoint the cause whether it’s from a fracture, infection, herniated or diseased discs, or injury. Using modern techniques, our staff at NYSI can provide you with proper treatments to begin your path to recovery.*

Typically we only perform spine surgery, including back or cervical (neck) surgery, on patients who have chronic pain after other treatment paths have failed. This unbearable pain is usually caused by pinched nerves, spinal cord compression, or mechanical instability.

If you find your back pain or neck pain interrupting your daily routine, or find it becoming chronic and intense, it may be time to visit New York Spine Institute in Cornwall. Let one of our spine specialists use their extensive knowledge to analyze your symptoms and come up with a treatment plan personalized to you and your condition. Once we pinpoint the cause and triggers of your back or neck pain we can provide you with treatment options from mild non-surgical methods to in depth surgeries.

When you first visit us for your back or neck pain our back doctors will thoroughly examine you to find the source of your pain. We take the time to listen to our patients and analyze all aspects before diagnosing you with a disorder or recommending back or neck pain treatment. As a surgical facility some might assume we recommend surgeries often, but here at New York Spine Institute we actually don’t always suggest them. We find that patients can benefit from other courses of treatment which do not require any surgical intervention. We only suggest our patients undergo surgery if all other forms of treatment come up unsuccessful.
