North American Spine Doctors
Compassionate, minimally invasive specialists
North American Spine works with leading physicians in the fields of interventional pain management, neurosurgery, and orthopedic spine surgery. Our multi-specialty team allows us to evaluate your unique case from several medical perspectives so that we can provide you with the least invasive and most effective treatment plan. All physicians are board certified, and many are active in their professional communities, either by teaching, conducting research on spine pain and treatments, or some other endeavor. One thing they all have in common is that they are highly trained and specialize in minimally invasive techniques.
North American Spine works to understand your needs and match you with the physician who is best suited to treat your symptoms and provide the most positive outcome.

Doctors We Partner With
“Our physicians are industry leaders in minimally invasive surgery, and through their research efforts are constantly working to advance the field. Our physicians are the backbone of the North American Spine team; they are innovators with great technical skill; but even more importantly, they are great people who go above and beyond to provide supreme care to their patients.” –Dr. Neil Badlani, Chief Medical Officer
A typical doctor’s education includes an undergraduate degree, a medical degree, residency training in a relatively broad subject, and fellowship training in a more specialized subject area. North American Spine partner physicians invest in continuing education curricula to stay up-to-date with respect to technology and standards of care and are regularly trained on the latest minimally invasive techniques and advanced equipment.
Our partner physicians have trained with some of the most respected senior educators in the field and have logged significant hours on cases. North American Spine continually vets our partner physicians to ensure that, in addition to their experience and education, their bedside manner and personalized care is keeping with our high and patient-centered standards.
Medical boards are professional societies that examine physicians for their knowledge and fitness to perform in a certain medical specialty or sub-specialty. When a physician obtains board certification, he or she has received a license to practice in a specialty requiring advanced knowledge and training. All North American Spine physicians are board certified, and many are double-board certified, meaning they are able to practice in more than one specific area.
Unless you are in the medical field, you may be confused about what kind of specialist can best help you. For example, a dentist and an orthodontist are both familiar with the mouth, but specialize in different services (an orthodontist can help you fit braces but may not be ideal for annual dental check-ups). In the same way, North American Spine works with physicians from a variety of sub-specialties in order to match you up with the physician best-suited to your needs. In some instances, two or more physicians from different subspecialties may collaborate on one patient’s care.
We work with physicians from these specialties:
Interventional pain management. A physician who specializes in interventional pain management diagnoses and treats pain and related disorders through interventional techniques, as opposed to ongoing therapy such as physical therapy. Interventional techniques may include a nerve block (such as an epidural steroid injection), spinal cord stimulation, drug delivery systems, and minimally invasive spine procedures (including nerve ablation and laser discectomy with neural decompression). Interventional pain management is a subspecialty of pain management, and often overlaps with anesthesiology.
Neurosurgery. Also called neurological surgeons, neurosurgeons focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders in the central nervous system, including the spine and the brain. A neurosurgeon may specialize exclusively on spine surgery or brain surgery, or practice both. As it relates to the spine, neurosurgeons can treat spinal conditions including: abnormal bone growth, weakened or fractured bone, arthritis, bulging or herniated discs, instability, and more.
Orthopedic spine surgery. An orthopedic surgeon may have a designation of MD (medical doctor) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine), with a surgical residency focusing on musculoskeletal conditions. Like neurosurgeons, an orthopedic spine surgeon may also treat spine conditions including: abnormal bone growth, weakened or fractured bone, arthritis, bulging or herniated discs, instability, and more.
