The Acute Spine Center was established to provide comprehensive medical care for patients experiencing acute neck, thoracic and back conditions. The goal is to treat acute spine injuries early on using conservative medical treatment in order to prevent long term issues. The Spine Center uses the most efficient and cost effective care possible to get patients back to functioning as they were before the injury.
Specialists from the Avera Neuroscience Institute meet regularly, explore the best treatment protocols, share knowledge and create custom treatment plans. This team reviews challenging cases in a collaborative, multidisciplinary forum focusing on improving patient outcomes. Specialties include:
The Acute Spine Center has a highly skilled Spine Navigator who serves as a patient liaison helping patients and family members "navigate" through each step of diagnosis, treatment and recovery of acute spine conditions. The navigator also facilitates the referring physician's interaction with the care team and provides day-to-day information on recommended treatment plans and patient progress.
