Minimally Invasive is Maximally Beneficial

Advances in spine imaging, such as MRIs, allow our three board-certified orthopedic and neurosurgeons to see smaller and smaller spinal problems.

At Coastal Spine, we use minimally invasive […]


When Injections May Be the Best Treatment Option

At Coastal Spine, surgery to relieve pain should always be the last treatment option. That’s the goal of our pain management strategies.

At Coastal Spine, our board-certified pain management doctors can help by using radiofrequency energy […]


Fractured Cervical Vertebrae

When most people hear the phrase “broken neck” they assume the person is now going to be a quadriplegic for the rest of his or her life.
