About the Spine Center


Approximately 80% of Americans will have an episode of severe, spine-related pain. Conservative treatments including a home exercise program, physical therapy, medications and injections typically resolve these symptoms; however, expert supervision and treatment help prevent the long-term symptoms that impair function and quality of life.

Spine related problems may present as:

  • Neck pain and arm pain
  • Mid back and rib pain
  • Low back and leg pain/hip pain

The Spine Center at Hunterdon Orthopaedic Institute is a unique, multidisciplinary facility offering urgent care of acute and chronic spine related pain. Our team of fellowship-trained interventional spine physicians, spine surgeons, and neurologists diagnose and treat in the same facility. We also perform urgent open MRI scanning and EMG testing to help pinpoint your exact diagnosis.
