Spine care at Nuvance Health: Why choose us?

If you experience neck or back pain, the spine team at Nuvance Health can help. Experienced specialists provide a range of treatments, including nonsurgical and surgical options. Highlights of our program include:

  • National certification:
    Each of our hospitals continually improves its spine care program to offer you quality care. For example, Danbury Hospital has achieved certification as a Center of Excellence in spine care from The Joint Commission. This designation means we provide safe care based on the latest research.
  • Excellent outcomes:
    We use minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. This approach may promote quicker recoveries and shorter hospital stays. Some of our spine surgery patients may go home the same day. Dedicated patient navigators help you return home more quickly and reduce the chances that you’ll have to return to the hospital.
  • Robot-assisted procedures:
    Spine surgeons use advanced technology like the Globus Medical ExcelsiusGPS to operate with smaller incisions and high levels of precision. This technology allows us to offer you single-stage surgeries for complex conditions, meaning you avoid the need for multiple procedures.
  • Specialized surgeons:
    Fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons collaborate closely with neurosurgeons to offer many types of back and spine surgery. We also have spine surgeons with unique skills in reconstructive spine procedures. This specialization requires advanced training to reconstruct bones, joints, ligaments and tendons.
