Spine Center at Keck Medical Center of USC

The spine provides the framework for all body systems. The spinal column not only includes bones and cartilage in the neck and the back, but it is woven with an intricate webbing of nerves, veins and arteries. At the Spine Center at Keck Medical Center of USC, we understand and treat the varied and complex clinical problems that are associated with the neck and the back.

We have an experienced group of spine surgeons who are accomplished in performing minimally invasive and the most complex spine surgery procedures. Our doctors are recognized as leaders in the field, appearing in U.S. News and World Report, Pasadena Magazine’s Top Doctors and Best Doctors.

Unique to the Spine Center is true comprehensive, coordinated care. We provide diagnostic testing, pain management, psychological counseling, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and a wide variety of surgical procedures such as microdiscectomy, cervical and lumbar spine fusion and artificial disc replacement.

We also offer advanced diagnostic testing and treatment plan design for patients experiencing high acuity conditions such as spine tumor and advanced spine deformities. Our team of specialists will collaborate to determine the best approach of care for every patient. 

Additionally, our spine specialists are dedicated to developing new techniques and instrumentation for spine surgery. We also participate in clinical trials that assess the best treatment regimen. Our goal is to develop new and effective approaches to alleviate spine and back pain for our patients.
