Services & Specialties

Back Institute

OrthoMaryland’s skilled physicians provide the latest in both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for spine conditions, including acute pain management. Our physicians evaluate each case carefully to maximize patient satisfaction and recovery.

Thanks to a number of recent advances in nonsurgical, orthopaedic pain management techniques, pain relief is more precise—and more effective—than ever before. We are experts in the administration of specialized spinal injections, including:

  • facet joint injections
  • epidurals
  • nerve blocks
  • radiofrequency nerve ablations

By seamlessly integrating these injections into a comprehensive orthopaedic rehabilitation program, OrthoMaryland patients benefit from a complete spectrum of care tailored to their specific condition.

Experience and expertise

When surgery is indicated, our fellowship-trained surgeons offer the most advanced and proven techniques. OrthoMaryland physicians also work with physical therapists specializing in spine care and the complementary care team in our Center for Complementary Care to create a unique treatment plan for each patient.

Depending on the diagnosis and other factors, treatment can include medication, physical therapy, exercise, counseling, therapeutic injections and surgery. Conditions diagnosed and treated by the Spine Division include:

  • Mechanical back pain
  • Displaced discs
  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Osteoporosis complications
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
  • Fractures of the vertebrae
  • Muscle and ligament strain
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis or other spinal structural complications
