Spine Care

Carrollton Orthopedic Spine Center is committed to providing the highest quality care and compassion to our patients. Our experienced healthcare professionals are dedicated to treating our patients as an individual, deserving of our time, attention, and respect. Our highly trained physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners will tailor your experience to address your specific spine needs. We provide collaborative care with other healthcare professionals specializing in spine care including physiatrists (Dr. Pence), pain specialists, physical therapists, etc.

We perform thorough evaluations, reviewing the patient's history, examination, and diagnostic imaging studies to determine the appropriate conservative measures. Once all conservative treatments have been exhausted, our spine team will determine the appropriate surgical procedure. The vast majority of patients do not require surgical intervention.

  • Herniated Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar Disc
  • Degenerative Disc

  • Spinal Stenosis (narrowing)
  • Spondylolisthesis (slipping of the vertebra)

  • Medications
  • Heat and Ice therapy
  • Injections (epidural, nerve block, facet joint)
  • Acupuncture
  • TENS unit (muscle stimulator)
