Our Spine Specialists Help You Manage Back and Neck Pain

Spine, back, and neck pain are common problems that will affect approximately 75% of all Americans at some time in their life. The fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic surgeons at Mendelson Kornblum can expertly assess your condition and will go over both surgical and non-surgical treatment options as they pertain to your ideal outcome.

We pair diagnostic expertise with imaging — including MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, and nerve conduction testing — to design the most appropriate and effective treatment plan available while educating patients in self-care as well.

  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal deformities
  • Congenital disorders
