At Torrance Memorial, our neurologists and neurosurgeons provide expert treatment for a full range of common and complex conditions that affect the spine. Our team uses the latest nonsurgical and surgical therapies to provide effective treatment that improves mobility and reduces pain, with the goal of returning you to your daily activities.

Your team will use the latest diagnostic tools to identify and understand your condition. Using the results of your diagnostic tests, your specialists will create a customized treatment plan that incorporates the latest, evidence-based therapies and participation in promising clinical trials, if applicable — as well as additional services that support your overall well-being.

If nonsurgical treatments do not improve your symptoms, our neurosurgeons will use minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible to provide outstanding, patient-centered care.

Multidisciplinary Care

Your multidisciplinary team will include neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic specialists, pain management experts, social workers, and physical and occupational therapists, who will work together to deliver leading-edge, personalized spine treatment.

Your team will meet to discuss your condition and develop a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. You will receive care at Torrance Memorial from our dedicated team of neurology and neurosurgery experts, eliminating your need to travel far from home to access leading-edge treatments and therapies.

Nonsurgical Spine Care

In most cases, nonsurgical care is the first course of treatment for spinal pain. Our specialists will create a personalized treatment plan for you using the latest physical therapy, physiatry, and pain management techniques, as well as alternative therapies to reduce pain and improve mobility.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

If nonsurgical treatments do not provide symptom relief, your physician may recommend surgery. We perform a full range of procedures, including artificial disc replacement, spinal fusions, and procedures to relieve nerve pressure.

Our team takes a conservative-care surgical approach, using minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible to minimize recovery time, pain, and blood loss, while reducing the risk of complications. Our specialists also perform microsurgery, which uses magnification to provide your surgeon with improved visibility that leads to improved patient outcomes.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Torrance Memorial offers a full range of services to support your recovery after spinal surgery or injury. Our team of Neurological Intensive Care Unit (ICU) providers will provide you with outstanding post-surgical patient care. After your hospital stay, Torrance Memorial’s Neurological and Stroke Rehabilitation Program will allow you to continue your recovery close to home. And, our pain management specialists will work closely with you throughout your treatment and recovery to safely and effectively minimize discomfort.
