Spine Program
Damage to the structure of the spine or the vertebrae and its surrounding tissue can cause debilitating pain or mechanical problems that limit movement. The compassionate Temple neurosciences team at Jeanes Hospital understand how profoundly back pain can affect a person’s life.

Whether the damage is caused by an injury, infection, degenerative condition, tumors, or age-related changes, Temple neurosciences physicians draw on their extensive experience in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of spinal conditions with the focused goal of alleviating the debilitating pain for their patients.

The Jeanes Hospital spine program provides a state-of-the-art setting for the treatment of even the most complex spinal injuries. For example, in cases of spinal fractures caused by cancer or osteoporosis, our Temple neurosurgeons are highly experienced in the use of balloon kyphoplasty as a treatment option.

If surgery is required, our team is at the leading edge of a full range of surgical options—from minimally invasive, to endoscopic, to traditional neurosurgery—for conditions including spinal stenosis, lumbar disk, Chiari malformations, and primary and metastatic spinal tumors.

At the heart of all of this is the multidisciplinary Temple neurosciences team. Our highly-dedicated neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurse specialists, rehabilitation physicians, and physical therapists stand ready to provide patients with personalized care every step of the way.
