at Hoag Orthopedic Institute

Specializing in Comprehensive Spine Care in Orange County

While there are a number of underlying causes for pain, some causes – including trauma, disease of the spine, or congenital conditions – may require surgery in order to help patients find lasting relief, increased mobility, and better overall health.
