Clinical specialists, including back and spine surgeons, pain management specialists, physical therapists and radiologists have been brought together to form a team focused on providing patients with the best possible options for diagnosing and treating back and neck pain. If you are suffering from back or neck pain, please call 866-982-3131 to speak with a nurse navigator who will help begin the process of being evaluated.
"This program enables us to quickly get patients headed in the right direction for their treatment," said Sylvia Fields, clinical coordinator and nurse navigator for the Back and Spine Center. "Our system allows us to compile all of the patient's information, including records and images, and get that to physicians faster."
Back and spine specialists from the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine provide years of experience and expertise in the surgical treatment of back and neck pain for adults or children.
"This is a valuable service that gives patients access to a wide range of specialists in back and spine disorders," said Dr. Charles Shuff, director of the Back and Spine Center. "We are committed to a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to back and spine care, as well as providing an easy-to-use method for reaching staff and being evaluated."
