Dedicated Concussion and Head Trauma Program
Our dedicated Concussion and Head Trauma Program features expert care from doctors, nurses and rehabilitation specialists focused on the diagnosis and management of complex head injuries. We help you recover from head trauma as completely as possible using effective treatments such as:
Comprehensive care for back pain
Your treatment team may consist of experts from several medical specialties through the Advanced Spine Center, including orthopedics, neurology, pain management, chiropractic medicine, physiatry and rehabilitation. We work together to find the best treatment options for you.
Unmatched surgical expertise
If your condition requires surgery, you’ll receive the best care from our board-certified neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons. Many of our providers are fellowship-trained (meaning they have completed the highest level of medical training in their specialty) and are experts in the field with leading-edge research efforts.
In addition, we’re the first health network in the region to obtain Mazor X Stealth™ Edition robotic guidance platform that delivers improved accuracy and precision in back surgeries. This allows surgeons enhanced 3D pre-surgery planning, greater precision, increased visibility during surgery, reduced surgery time and less patient X-ray exposure.
SeaSpine FLASH™ navigation system, featuring 7D technology
We’re the first in Pennsylvania to use a new operating-room navigation system that provides a radiation-free tool for placing spinal implants. Featuring 7D technology, it uses machine-vision cameras and advanced algorithms for image-guided surgery. For the first time, spine surgeons can guide their tools to the critical anatomy using sophisticated camera technology linked to a computer in the operating room. Increased precision and speed, and less radiation, mean less time the patient is under anesthesia, which can reduce recovery time.
We’re with you for the long haul. Regardless of how long your recovery takes, we offer multiple ways to help you continue to achieve your goals.
From aquatic physical therapy (water therapy) to chiropractic care, our specialists work with you to help you bounce back from head, neck or spinal injuries or illnesses.
