Am I A Candidate?
North American Spine aims to help those with chronic back or neck pain find long-term relief. While our minimally invasive procedures are very safe and effective, we believe more conservative treatments–including medication and physical therapy–should always be tried first.
Have you already tried these steps to pain relief?
- Visited your Primary Care Physician
- Received an MRI/CT Scan
- Received a Diagnosis
- Treated your pain with conservative methods:
- Pain medication
- Physical therapy
- Spinal injections
Still have back or neck pain? You could be a candidate for one of our minimally invasive procedures.
Free Second Opinions
We recommend obtaining a second opinion if you are questioning a previous diagnosis or treatment plan. If you have an MRI or CT-scan that is less than three years old, our medical team will review your report free of charge. After reviewing the report, your Patient Care Manger will communicate what next steps are needed to provide a treatment plan from the North American Spine physician best fit to treat your unique case. For a second opinion, fill out the form on this page or call us at 877.474.2225.
If you don’t have an MRI/CT scan: Your first step will be to make an appointment with your Primary Care Physician, who can order one for you.
Candidacy is determined by several factors:
- The nature of your pain and previous treatments. Because we specialize in surgical procedures, we want to verify that the best treatment of your pain is indeed surgical.
- Your medical history, including prior surgeries. Prior surgeries do NOT necessarily disqualify you for surgery. In fact, many of our patients have had multiple prior surgeries elsewhere.
- Your insurance. We work exclusively with many private insurance policies and do offer self-pay for some patients. Unfortunately, we cannot work with public insurers like Medicare, Medicaid, or Workers Comp at this time.
- Bulging, protruding, or herniated disc
- Pinched or Impinged Nerves

Connect with a Patient
Some of our former patients have been kind enough to offer to speak with back pain sufferers who are looking into treatment options. We encourage you to take them up on it! After we determine a treatment plan, we’ll connect you with a past patient who had a similar condition and procedure.To Get Started:
