North Shore-LIJ opens Spine Center

North Shore-LIJ opens Spine Center

The North Shore-LIJ Health System announced last Wednesday the opening of a Spine Center to treat an entire range of spine-related injuries. 

The center will be able to handle ailments from minor back strains to surgery, the health system said, and will include 10 physicians. The physicians will be from different specialty areas relating to spine injuries, including neurosurgery, orthopedics and physiatry. 

“Because spinal care can encompass so many different disciplines, it can mean people are sent to multiple healthcare providers before a diagnosis is even established,” said Jason Lipetz, division chief of spine medicine who will lead the center. “With the North Shore-LIJ Spine Center, patients can find one-stop shopping for their comprehensive spinal care.” 

Besides the physicians at the center, other neurologists, rheumatologists, imaging specialists, physical therapists and psychologists will be working with the center to round out patient care, the center said. 

The Spine Center will be located throughout Long Island and will offer patients quick access to physician care, according to a press release issued by North Shore-LIJ Health System.
