Spine care

If you live with back or neck pain, turn to the experts at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, part of Montage Health. Members of our medical staff offer a full range of nonsurgical and surgical options to help you feel more comfortable and enjoy a more active life.

Conditions treated

Get a diagnosis and treatment for conditions such as:

  • Cervical radiculopathy (nerve pain starting in the neck)
  • Herniated (bulging or slipped) disc
  • Sciatica (nerve pain in the lower back and leg)
  • Scoliosis, kyphosis, or lordosis (curved spine)
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowed spinal canal)
  • Spine fractures and other spinal cord injuries
  • Spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebra)

Treatments and therapies

You may get the best result with more than one type of care, such as:

  • Neurological care – Focuses on treating nerves
  • Pain management – Includes a variety of approaches, such as medication and alternative or complementary techniques
  • Physical therapy – Uses gentle exercises and hands-on techniques to improve range of motion and relieve pain
  • Surgery – Repairs spine injuries using a minimally invasive approach whenever possible to reduce pain, risk of complications, and recovery time

Back and neck surgery

You will be in the experienced hands of one of our board-certified orthopedic surgeons or neurosurgeons. Trust your doctor to provide excellent care during procedures such as:

  • Cervical or lumbar fusion – Joins two or more vertebrae in the neck or lower back to improve spine stability
  • Disc replacement – Exchanges a worn-out disc for an artificial one
  • Kyphoplasty – Injects a cement-like mixture into a broken vertebra to strengthen the bone and ease pain
  • Spinal decompression surgery, including discectomy and laminectomy – Removes a disc or part of a vertebral bone to remove painful pressure on nerves
