Millions of people suffer from neck or back pain at some point in their lives. Sometimes this pain can be attributed to trauma, a spinal tumor, or an infection. More often, the pain is chronic, progressive, and unrelenting. This pain often responds to multiple levels of intervention.
The team of physicians, nurses, therapists, and staff at Och Spine at NewYork-Presbyterian at the Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Comprehensive Spine Care provides state-of-the-art, comprehensive, integrated care for patients with back pain and all types of spine-related conditions and injuries. Patients receive a complete continuum of care, from diagnosis to treatment and recovery. When surgery is part of the plan, the spine surgeons from Weill Cornell Medicine's neurosurgery faculty offer world-class surgical expertise in TLIF and other advanced, minimally invasive procedures.
Our neurosurgeons see patients at our comprehensive facility on East 59th Street in New York that offers multidisciplinary services for a wide range of back and neck disorders, all under one roof.
The Spine Center prides itself on a three-part plan for each patient:
Expert, Accurate Diagnosis. Too many people suffer from back or neck pain from unknown causes — or worse, due to a misdiagnosis. Our world-class experts will pinpoint the exact cause of your pain to determine the most effective treatment.
Comprehensive Treatment: Our team approach allows us to draw on expertise from neurology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation medicine, anesthesiology, and physical therapy. After assessing your case, the spine team will tailor a treatment plan that may include physical therapy, medication, interventional pain management, acupuncture, and movement therapies. When surgery is part of the plan, we offer the most advanced minimally invasive techniques, including lateral access surgery that dramatically shortens your recovery time. We offer on-site rehabilitation, led by physical therapists whose holistic spine rehabilitation includes therapeutic exercise, manual techniques, yoga, McKenzie technique, and pool therapy.
Patient/Doctor Partnership: Patient education is one of the hallmarks of our approach. We consider you our partner in collaboratively planning the most effective and customized approach to restoring you to health.
When not directly serving patients, physicians and staff conduct cutting-edge research through laboratory and clinical research, then impart that knowledge to both patients and other physicians through a series of multidisciplinary education programs provided by the spine center in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medical College.
