What can the Atlanta Spine Institute do for you?

The human spine is a delicate skeletal network.  It must bend and twist to maintain balance and range of motion.  Problems with your spine, such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, back and leg pain, can have a profound impact on your quality of life.  You may be dealing with lost time from work.  Maybe you can no longer run, dance, or walk without assistance.  Perhaps your medications offer little relief.  If you are one of the millions of adults who suffer from back pain or a spinal condition, the Atlanta Spine Institute can help.

This premier facility is leading the way in providing quality spine care.  Whether you are experiencing lower back and neck pain, suffering from a crooked spine (scoliosis), had degenerative disc disease or herniated discs, have a work-related injury or sports injury, the Atlanta Spine Institute offers some of the most advanced treatments.  Most importantly, the Atlanta Spine Institute offers respect and compassionate care to all our patients.  We are dedicated to the conservative treatment of patients with adult musculoskeletal problems.
