Spinal Care

Man with back pain

When surgery is unavoidable, the Darroch Brain and Spine Institute uses state-of-the-art facilities at Doctors Medical Center, the region’s first Level II Trauma Center and a Blue Shield of California Distinction Center for spine surgery. Our specialized, minimally invasive spine surgery offers proven benefits in treating herniated discs, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis (narrowing), fractures, spinal deformity, infections, or tumors.

Minimally invasive spinal surgery may offer some of the following benefits:

  • A smaller incision, with minimal scarring
  • Minimal risk of damage to muscles, bones, discs, nerves, or blood vessels
  • Less pain after the procedure
