From acute (severe) and chronic low back and neck pain to herniated discs and spinal stenosis, the University of Maryland Spine and Peripheral Nerve Program provides comprehensive care for conditions of the spine and peripheral nervous system – the portion of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord. Our highly skilled team uses the latest advances in non-surgical and surgical treatments to get people back on their feet in as little time as possible.
When indicated, we offer minimally invasive or non-surgical treatments in addition to standard open surgery.
What Sets Us Apart
Advanced Treatment Options
Our neurosurgeons provide advanced treatments for a range of spine and peripheral nerve conditions. They work with patients’ referring providers to manage conditions medically whenever possible. If medical management is no longer effective, they resolve spinal and nerve conditions by combining their expertise with the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques when feasible. Minimally invasive techniques such as lateral lumbar interbody fusion (XLIF), cervical disc replacements, and percutaneous fixation are frequently offered if appropriate.
For patients with complex spinal tumors, we also partner with the Maryland Proton Treatment Center, which offers a highly advanced and precise form of radiation therapy that can increase radiation dose to a tumor while decreasing the dose to healthy, surrounding tissue.
