At the Daniel and Jane Och Spine Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian, our goal is to provide safe, efficient, innovative, and high-quality care for patients living with conditions affecting the spine. To achieve this goal, we have brought together a comprehensive care team offering a range of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options in one facility.

Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology

We use technology to improve the way we provide care to our patients. Our treatment facility is equipped with state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), low-radiation EOS X-ray imaging machines, and three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) to find the anatomical reason for your condition and the treatment options available.

Our doctors use those advanced imaging capabilities to perform a host of nonsurgical and surgical treatments with greater precision. Our team includes radiologists, physicists, and physicians skilled in image-guided interventions working together to determine the best imaging modality and begin treatment as soon as possible.

Conservative Therapies

We provide a range of treatments, including non-invasive methods to relieve pain and discomfort associated with herniated discs, spinal stenosis, radiating pain, coccyx pain, osteoarthritis, impingement syndromes, whiplash injuries, among other conditions. Our team includes rehabilitation medicine physicians heal and educate patients, empowering them to improve their quality of life and avoid future spinal problems. Other conservative therapies include:

  • Bed rest
  • Bracing
  • Cryotherapy
  • Ergonomics
  • Exercise
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Stress and weight management

Pain Management

We offer a comprehensive range of pain management services for patients suffering from acute or chronic pain due to spine conditions. Our pain management specialists work with patients on an individual level to quickly and efficiently customize a pain management plan to relieve discomforts. Providing the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for relief of acute and chronic pain problems, including bulging discs, spinal arthritis and other pain disorders, our pain management services include medication management, acupuncture, and interventional pain management.

Non-surgical Treatment Options

Daniel and Jane Och Spine Hospital offers comprehensive interventional care. In addition to conservative methods, we have outpatient, non-operative management of spinal disorders. Through targeted medication and injections, we can provide relief for spine conditions. Our non-surgical options include:

  • Discography
  • Electrotherapy
  • Guided injections
  • Nerve root blocks

Surgical Treatment Options

Our surgeons tailor each operation to best fit the individual patient and their specific condition by utilizing an array of techniques, including open and minimally invasive surgery, posterior and anterior approaches, and freehand and robotic surgery.

The surgical suites are designed explicitly for spinal procedures so our surgeons can perform complex procedures without the need to move or readjust the patient during surgery, which reduces the risk of position-related complications.

Our spine experts can coordinate your care with our other top specialists, i.e., cardiologists, endocrinologists, pulmonologists, to optimize surgical outcomes and expedite recovery following surgery.
