Our Approach

At Englewood Spine Associates, our goal is to help you feel better so that you can get back to living life without pain. With over 25 years of experience in providing spinal care and surgery, we have the expertise and resources to treat your back condition – no matter how severe.

We understand how important your back health is to your overall wellbeing. Before we perform any procedure, we take the time to educate you on your condition and provide you with all available treatment options to help you make an informed decision. We always strive to treat our patients with the most conservative approach possible; but when conservative care fails, we have many state-of-the-art, minimally invasive solutions that can be tailored to treating your condition.

Patient satisfaction is our highest priority, and that’s truly what sets us apart.
