Quality Care

SpineCare, an outpatient clinic of Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin, is dedicated to the transdisciplinary management of spine disorders. Transdisciplinary care means “across disciplines”; the SpineCare team includes board-certified and fellowship-trained experts from a variety of specialties who work together to meet each patient’s individual needs ── all in one place.

We specialize in treating patients with neck and back pain. We emphasize early intervention and offer a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to spine care. Our goal is to encourage an early, safe return to your routine activities and workplace, and to help you prevent long-term disability from back and neck pain.

SpineCare offers a unique personalized approach, with the patient at the center of care. We see the patient as a critical member of that team, and we ask our patients to be actively involved in their own treatment and long-term success.
