Comprehensive Care for Back, Neck and Spine Conditions

Northwestern Medicine offers comprehensive care for back, neck and spine conditions in downtown Chicago and the suburbs. We offer the full range of treatment options including nonsurgical and surgical treatment to help you get back to the things you enjoy.

We emphasize nonsurgical management and minimally invasive approaches first and foremost. Available options include but are not limited to medication, injection therapy, physical therapy and alternative treatments. Some conditions can be addressed with surgery to relieve pain. In those instances, our surgeons offer a range of solutions for even the most difficult conditions, focusing on minimally invasive surgical techniques when appropriate.

Our goal is to treat the entire patient — not just the pain. We work collaboratively to develop a personalized plan to treat your specific condition.
