Skokie Hospital has opened a new spine center. The news was announced today by NorthShore University HealthSystem.
The new spine center at Skokie Hospital will treat patients with back and neck conditions, some of the most common causes of pain and disability in the United States.
Part of the NorthShore Orthopaedic & Spine Institute, this innovative space brings together a multidisciplinary, collaborative team of specialists including orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, anesthesia, physical therapy, integrative medicine and pain psychology to conservatively treat complex spine conditions.
“We’re thrilled to open this dedicated space where our expert physicians and care teams work together to offer the best, personalized care to help the growing number of people challenged with spine conditions or complex back issues,” said Skokie Hospital President David Rahija. “Many of our physicians are nationally recognized in their specialties and treat patients from the entire region including professional and college athletes. We are proud to offer their expertise to the entire community.”
The NorthShore Spine Center offers a full range of treatment options, from physical therapy to integrative medicine treatments, including massage therapy and acupuncture, to the most advanced minimally invasive and computer- and robot-assisted surgical procedures and motion preservation techniques.
To enhance and support the Spine Center’s mission to help patients return to pain-free living, NorthShore has also opened the NorthShore Integrated Pain Center at Skokie Hospital to treat complex pain conditions using the most advanced interventional pain procedures.
In 2019, the NorthShore Orthopaedic & Spine Institute became Illinois’ first hospital dedicated to orthopaedic and spine care.
