Our Difference

Care Beyond Medicine

If you’re contemplating back, neck or joint treatment, the journey begins with one all-important question: Who will take care of you—all of you?

At the Spine & Orthopedic Institute, we have helped thousands of people renew their lives and move beyond debilitating back, neck and joint conditions. These success stories are due to our unique and powerful treatment approach. We start every relationship by getting to know you—your hopes and fears, your struggles and frustrations, and most importantly, your goals for the future. Only by understanding where you want to go, can we plan the best way to help you get there.

Your Journey Back Begins Here

For many, the decision to treat a long-standing back, neck or joint issue is a major turning point. At St. Vincent Charity, you will enter this new phase of life with plenty of support from your personal care team. This specialized group includes highly skilled and experienced master surgeons, clinical nurses, physical therapists, nutritionists and others, all working together to help you reach your goals before, during and after treatment.

Here, you’ll find the most advanced treatments, including minimally invasive therapies and robotic-aided surgeries, as well as complementary treatments such as chiropractic medicine, physical therapy, pain management and home care. The key is to design a treatment plan that is right for you and your goals—one that gets you back into your life as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Be Our Guest

When people are comfortable, they heal faster and achieve better outcomes. That’s why the Institute looks and feels more like an upscale hotel. Each of our 21 private suites features its own bath, wood and stone flooring, granite surfaces, flat-screen TVs, in-room dining and executive work stations with high-speed wireless internet access—all overlooking Cleveland’s downtown skyline.

Discover how our Care Beyond Medicine approach has made surgery less scary and more empowering. You’ll leave with no obligations. But you will find more answers and a greater belief that your pain can become just a memory, like so many others who were once just like you.
