Summit Orthopedics is dedicated to comprehensive spine care tailored to your individual needs and delivered with compassionate expertise. Our collaborative, patient-first model of care is designed to integrate the treatments you need and coordinate your care for you. It is our priority to guide you to the appropriate spine specialist for your condition with an unparalleled level of service.
During your appointment, your care provider has access to our team of spine surgeons, nonoperative spine physicians, and certified physical medicine and rehabilitation spine specialists to ensure that you receive the care you need when you need it. Because there are usually multiple treatments for a condition, we educate you about your options and let you know exactly what to expect through the course of the treatment you choose. We treat you in a supportive environment that respects privacy and individual choice. Our highly trained team collaborates in a warm, friendly atmosphere to provide an evaluation, diagnosis, medical treatment, and/or therapeutic care designed to restore you to health and help prevent recurrence of your symptoms.
The Summit spine team offers the depth of spine expertise and state-of-the-art resources to treat a full spectrum of spine conditions. Whenever possible, we take a conservative approach to your care before surgical options are considered. Together, we help you navigate your spine care decisions efficiently and effectively. Our goal is to empower you to make informed decisions and to guide you to the right provider at the right time to help you return to an active, healthy lifestyle.
