Spine Disorders

Spine surgeons at Barnes-Jewish & Washington University Spine Center treat a wide range of spine disorders, both operatively and non-operatively. Our orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons are able to coordinate with other specialties, such as oncology, radiology, internal medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, to fully address the impact a spinal disorder can have on a patient’s quality of life.

When more conservative treatment, such as physical therapy or medication, does not provide optimal relief, surgical options are available. Our surgeons specialize in specific types of disorders as well as specific locations within the spine, such as the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas. Given this unique specialization, Spine Center patients have access to the some of the highest levels of clinical spine care available in the U.S.
