Comprehensive Spine Center
The UConn Musculoskeletal Institute offers a full range of services for patients suffering from both chronic and acute neck and back pain through our Comprehensive Spine
Center. Here, experts provide today’s best non-surgical and surgical approaches to alleviate pain and restore function and mobility.
Our team includes experts in physiatry – non-surgical approaches to care – as well as highly trained spine surgeons, neurosurgeons and more. Together, our goal is to identify and
address the cause of a patient’s back, spine and leg pain. We usually begin with a non-operative approach using life style modification, oral medications, physical therapy and, when
indicated, spine intervention procedures.
Spine surgery is considered with the input of our patients only after non-surgical methods have been tried. Our spine surgeons offer today’s most advanced minimally-invasive
surgical procedures. We strongly believe that surgery should address the anatomical problem completely while performing the least invasive surgery possible.
For your convenience, all services are available under one roof, in the UConn Musculoskeletal Institute’s modern building on the UConn Health Center’s Farmington campus.
Here, we offer imaging, physical therapy including the region’s only warm-water SwimEx therapeutic pool, as well as an outpatient surgical center where all of the injection
procedures, and many of the surgical cases, are performed. In addition, some of our experts see patients in Southington.
Our Specialists and Staff
are now designated a “Blue Distinction Center” for both spine surgery
and total joint replacement.
We try to make your
hospital stay as comfortable as possible. See our Patient and Visitor Guide for more information. Learn more >
