Spine Care

Comprehensive care for neck and back conditions

Spine Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham

When you’re experiencing neck or back pain, you want relief. The specialists at the BID Needham Spine Center can diagnose and treat a range of neck and back problems. We work with you to get you the care you need, when you need it, all right here in your community.

Treatment for Back and Neck Problems

In many cases, neck and back problems can be treated with minimally invasive options like injections or other forms of non-surgical care. These options can help reduce your pain and get you back to doing the things you love.

When surgery is needed, you work with a surgeon who is specially trained to care for the spine.

Expert Care to Meet Your Needs

Spine conditions are common. Our spine specialists can care for many problems you may be experiencing. For complex problems involving the bones and nerves, however, you may need to see a specialist. This is especially true if surgery is recommended for your condition. At the BID Needham Spine Center, we can quickly guide you to the right specialist.  Specialists you may work with include neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons. While both can provide similar care, they also have their own areas of specialization:


Neurosurgeons specialize in problems related to your nerves. For example, they provide treatment for spinal cord tumors.

Orthopedic Surgeon

Orthopedic surgeons specialize in problems with your bones. This includes conditions like adult scoliosis and other spinal deformities.
