Welcome to the Department of Spine Surgery at La Peer Health Systems. This particular department is a sub-specialty of the Department of Orthopedics & Sports Medicine – the department that treats conditions and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. At La Peer, patient care starts well before the day of the operation, with debriefings and pre-op appointments, and it extends long after spine surgery is completed, with regular check-ups and follow-up consultations to ensure the site is healing as planned.
The spine is susceptible to injury and misuse and many people suffer from spinal problems today. Despite the huge demand, it’s estimated that around 650 orthopedic physicians complete residency training each year and go on to complete surgeries. La Peer Health Systems is very lucky to have 14 orthopedic surgeons on staff. At La Peer, we feel it is important to use surgery only as a last resort and to use minimally invasive techniques when possible.
La Peer Health Systems was also named one of the 100 Greatest Places To Work by Becker’s ASC Review. The list is compiled through nominations and editorial research and places are chosen based on benefits, wellness initiatives, development opportunities, and overall work environment. We take great pride in our professional and courteous staff and are honored to be included on Becker’s 2013 ASC Review.
From musculoskeletal infections to injuries, tumors and congenital disorders, there are numerous conditions that can affect the spine. Lumbar spinal fusion, intervertebral disc surgery, lumbar partial discectomy and thoracic derotation are amongst some of the spinal surgery procedures carried out by our surgeons when non-invasive or minimally invasive surgery is not possible.
