Neurology

Back pain causes Americans to lose more than 264 million days of work each year and is the leading causing of disability worldwide. If you’re one of the many suffering from this common condition, Atlantic Health System’s Spine Care program can help get you back on the job. We offer individualized treatment plans to effectively manage the pain caused by herniated discs, compression fractures, sciatica and other spinal disorders. In addition, our neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive spine surgical techniques (MISS) that result in shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.
