Why Choose Us

We Are Neck & Back Pain Specialists

Is persistent neck or back pain interfering with your daily activities or diminishing your quality of life? The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons at Signature Orthopedics can help you find the relief you need. But, we do much more than treat neck and back pain – we also develop trusted and enduring relationships with our patients to help them stay healthy and pain-free for life.

Dealing with chronic neck or back pain can be especially trying if you don't know the cause. Whether your discomfort is related to overuse, osteoarthritis, muscle spasms, a herniated disc, whiplash from a car accident, stress, or even aging, we'll get to the bottom of it. And, after we do, we'll work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
