The spine functions as your foundation for mobility and strength. It also protects the vital lines of the body’s internal communication, the nerves and spinal cord.
Unfortunately, during a person’s lifetime, there is an 80% chance that spinal pain and dysfunction will affect the normal activities of daily living. At KOC, the delicate and complex task of spinal surgery (neck and back) is in the caring hands of three orthopaedic surgeons: Dr. James Maguire, Dr. Paul Johnson and Dr. Luke Madigan. Additionally, KOC has two other spine specialists with expertise in non-surgical treatments: Dr. Bruce Fry and Dr. Michael C. Craig.
None of us want to miss out on a day at the lake or a dinner with friends because of pain or exhaustion from a bad back or a stiff neck. Spinal pain and dysfunction takes a toll on the whole body and can have profound effects on our daily activities. Trusting the caring and experienced specialists at KOC with the delicate and complex task of spinal surgery can mean returning to the lake or to a favorite pastime with confidence and renewed strength.
For many of us, thoughts of anesthesia, a hospital stay, and recovery from surgery are daunting. Fortunately, advanced diagnostics and non-surgical treatment, including comprehensive therapy and rehabilitation programs, make it possible for KOC physicians to relieve many orthopaedic problems without surgery. You can trust that at KOC, we emphasize holistic care as we strive to minimize medication and maximize rehabilitative approaches.
