Providence Spine Services


Studies show that as many as 8 out of 10 Americans experience back pain at some point during their lifetime. If you or a loved one are experiencing any form of back or neck discomfort, please contact one of our Providence Hospital Spine physicians below for an evaluation. Our Spine Program is the only certified Blue Distinction for Spine Surgery program in the Southwest Alabama / South Mississippi region.

Blue Distinction Center for Spine Surgery

Blue Distinction Centers for Spine Surgery® have demonstrated their commitment to quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for spine surgery patients. Each Blue Distinction® facility meets objective clinical measures that are developed with input from expert physicians' and medical organizations' recommendations.

Advanced Technology

Providence offers the region’s only High Field Open MRI. This next-generation MRI technology offers the patient the greatest amount of comfort, especially for those with claustrophobic concerns, along with more scanning capabilities and superior image quality. A traditional Open MRI fails to provide this type of flexibility and overall quality.

Providence’s Trilogy system allows clinicians to offer non-surgical treatment of tumors on the spine--an area notoriously difficult to treat due to the proximity to the spinal cord.
