Spine Center

Mission Spine Center's primary philosophy is to help patients prevent injury and avoid surgery whenever possible. We use a multidisciplinary approach to help patients return to and maintain a life free of spine pain. Our highly specialized experts carefully coordinate a personalized prevention, treatment and rehabilitation program that matches each patient's unique needs. Mission Spine Center offers treatment for a full range of neck and back conditions, providing a continuum of care.

Education and Prevention Program

Mission Spine Center offers a comprehensive education and prevention program designed to help patients avoid spine injuries before they occur. Our experts work to provide patients the knowledge and tools they need to maintain neck and back health, including daily-living tips, proper body-mechanic instruction, spine-strengthening and injury-prevention exercises, and workplace ergonomics.


We are highly experienced in all types of spine surgeries. Our respected affiliated surgeons use state-of-the-art surgical techniques to ensure that every patient receives unsurpassed treatment and care. Mission Hospital also offers an advanced surgical intensive care unit, providing patients the monitored support they need to achieve fast and complete recovery.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Mission Spine Center specializes in minimally invasive procedures that offer more treatment options for a wide range of spine conditions. State-of-the-art procedures are performed at Mission Hospital and our outpatient Mission Surgery Center, providing several significant advantages over traditional surgeries, including faster recovery times, limited tissue disruption, shorter hospital stays, smaller incisions and less scarring and more surgical precision.

Rehabilitation Center

Following treatment, patients often require a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Mission Spine Center rounds out its care with a team approach to rehabilitation ranging from mild muscle strengthening to intensive training.

Other benefits include:

  • Full scope of rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech therapies
  • Board Certified Orthopedic Certified Specialists
  • Group and individual classes, and health- education programs
  • Work-hardening programs that help patients regain the strength they need to return to work
