Is your back out of whack? Let our spine care experts straighten you out.
Back pain affects almost everyone at some point in their lives. Pain in the back or neck area can be acute, which comes on suddenly and intensely, or chronic, which can last for weeks, months, or even years. When everyday activities such as shopping or housework can become difficult or unbearable, and back pain can't be eased with a combination of rest, medication or exercise, you may opt for surgery. The goal of back and neck rehabilitation is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving your overall quality of life — physically, emotionally, and socially.

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.
