Excellence in Spine Surgery
There may come a time when back or neck pain reduces the quality of your life. Everyday activities such as walking, shopping, or housework can become difficult or unbearable as conservative measures like diet, exercise, physical therapy and medications no longer provide relief or alleviate your pain. If this is you, it may be time to consider spine surgery. Broward Health North offers several specialized procedures as part of a comprehensive program featuring an interdisciplinary team approach and pre-operative and post-operative patient education:
- Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion
- Lumbar fusion
- Lumbar laminectomy
- Lumbar microdiscectomy
Broward Health North' Spine Program is the first and only Joint Commission Certified program in south Florida. The Spine Care Center features a team of expert surgeons, nurses, therapists, pain management specialists, and technicians specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing back and neck surgery.

Our team of experts, including surgeons, nurses, therapists, pain management specialists, and technicians, work closely with you in a structured recovery program, including pre-operative and post-operative patient and family education, a patient guidebook outlining what to expect each step of the way and daily newsletters while in the hospital. Family members, referred to as “coaches,” are encouraged to participate with the recovery process, learning about special exercises, medications and follow-up care.
We believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to superior education for you and your family. Our comprehensive approach includes:

The Latest Technology
Broward County's first CyberKnife®, in use at Broward Health North, is designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body, pain-free. A non-invasive alternative to conventional surgery, the CyberKnife® works with sub-millimeter accuracy and unsurpassed flexibility tracking tumors in the brain, spine, lungs, liver, pancreas and prostate. It delivers radiation beams with a superior range of positions allowing access to a tumor from any direction.
Because of its precision and continuous imaging, the CyberKnife® ensures target accuracy without manually repositioning patients – treating what were once considered "inoperable" tumors. This non-invasive, pain-free technology allows patients to resume normal lives with minimal recovery time and risk.
