But relief is within reach. Our doctors and care teams are here to identify, diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions and diseases with some of the most advanced technologies and treatments personalized to your needs.

Compassionate Care From Our Expert Team

We care for you like family. From initial inquiry to your first appointment, and all the way through rehab, we are here for you. It’s all about taking time to truly understand your individual concerns and answer detailed questions. The more we learn, the better we can help.

There are a variety of treatment approaches available, including pain management, spinal cord stimulation, pain psychiatry, physical therapy and, of course, a well-balanced exercise program. When surgery is needed, we offer the latest minimally invasive procedures to provide a quicker recovery, getting you back to living your best life.

Robot-assisted surgical technology is designed to enhance the safety and accuracy of minimally invasive spine surgery. We offer Mazor Robotics, Mazor X™ Stealth Edition, ExcelsiusGPS®, 7D Surgical System and TrackX guidance systems at our Celebration, Altamonte Springs, Orlando, Heart of Florida and Fish Memorial campuses.

In many cases, it’s possible to forgo spinal surgery and opt for physical therapy. Our skilled team of physicians, physical therapists and care coordinators work together to evaluate your condition and create a proper treatment plan just for you. Often, physical therapy will reduce or eliminate your pain, improve strength and flexibility and restore normal range of movement. With more than 32 Central Florida rehab locations, we’re right around the corner from your home or place of work.

Advanced technology and techniques mean better accuracy, greater safety and faster healing. Mazor Robotics, ExcelsiusGPS™ and TrackX use sophisticated robotic navigation for increased surgical precision. And our techniques, like laparoscopic fusion, can relieve painful spine compressions and reduce radiating pain from herniated or bulging discs.

Your whole-person health — body, mind and spirit — is the focus of our pain management program. We believe it’s important to address not only your pain, but the lifestyle and environmental conditions that may be contributing to it. We begin with a complete diagnostic assessment to develop a comprehensive pain management plan that will improve the quality of your daily activities and give you valuable self-management skills. Then, your physician will outline treatment options, which may range from interventional therapies to radiofrequency therapy, therapeutic injections or pain psychiatry.
