The Kentucky Spine Institute is a center for the specialized treatment of spinal disorders. The staff physicians of the Kentucky Spine Institute are orthopedic surgeons who have all completed additional one year fellowship training in treatment of disorders of the spine. Our physicians are certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.

     The Kentucky Spine Institute's primary mission is the evaluation and care of patients (children and adults) with disorders of the spine. This includes both the nonoperative and the operative care of such conditions.

     The non-operative care of spinal problems may involve radiologic testing, neurologic testing, physical therapy, work-conditioning programs, and pain management medicine. These services are available through the Kentucky Spine Institute. We pride ourselves in being able to provide the wide-ranging comprehensive services through our institution and other associated caregivers.

     The conditions of the spine treated at the Kentucky Spine Institute are varied. They include degenerative conditions of the spine (herniated discs and spinal stenosis, workplace back injuries), deformity of the spine (scoliosis and kyphosis), fractures, tumors and infections of the spine, and other conditions.

     Our physicians have been the first to introduce many innovative surgical techniques to our area. The first laproscopic spinal fusion and threaded interbody fusion cages in the Central Kentucky area were completed by our physicians.

     Our physicians are actively involved in developing new surgical techniques and medical devices that improve patient care. 

     By being at the forefront in such areas, we hope to provide the best in care.

     Though the primary mission of the Kentucky Spine Institute is patient care, our physicians are actively involved in medical research and education. The physicians of the Kentucky Spine Institute have published numerous articles and research on spinal disorders in peer review journals and have hosted several regional and national spine surgery seminars.
