If back or neck pain is interfering with your ability to enjoy life, it may be time to visit Labette Health's Spine Center of Excellence.
Your spine is delicate, and we will consider conservative, nonsurgical treatment plans that might help alleviate your problem before looking at surgical options. Our expert team of neurosurgeons, physiatrists, internists, radiologists, physical therapists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses work together to create individualized short and long term plans for each patient.
Your Nurse Navigator
As part of our program, our nurse navigator will assist you in coordinating your recommended care as well as following you throughout the duration of your care within the program to ensure you are progressing. At the time of initial contact, the nurse navigator and support staff will work quickly as possible to schedule your consultation with our nurse practitioner.
The consultation visit with your nurse practitioner will include a medical history and physical evaluation. When appropriate, radiological studies such as CT, X-ray, myelograms, MRI and angiograms may be ordered for additional evaluation. Your nurse practitioner will then work closely with our spine center team and you, to select a treatment plan that allows you to achieve the optimal benefits for a healthier life.
