When it comes to treating the spine, experience matters. One of only six Level I trauma centers in Illinois, Advocate Christ Medical Center sees more severe trauma patients than any hospital in Illinois. What's more, our neurosurgeons treat 99 percent of the trauma-related spine injuries. This experience makes physicians at Christ Medical Center uniquely qualified to treat practically any spinal injury, from initial work up to medical management and surgery, through rehabilitation.
While surgery is a last resort, patients who do not respond to medications and other non-invasive therapies benefit from the expertise of our highly specialized neurosurgical team. Neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons are trained in latest surgical procedures for spinal reconstruction, spine cancers and spine traumas. Our team also includes physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, pain management specialists, neuropsychologists and radiation oncologists to offer comprehensive treatments.
Our fully accredited rehabilitation program features physical and rehabilitation therapists who help patients complete their recovery.
From cervical and lumbar disc herniations to spinal stenosis to tumors of the spine, Christ Medical Center provides state-of-the-art care for patients with degenerative conditions, traumatic injuries and spinal tumors.
