The three-acre medical campus is a destination in and of itself, with sufficient facilities to handle everything from a pulled muscle to degenerative spondylolisthesis.

Doctors at SSI are all board certified and rank among the top physicians in the country. Talk to a spinal physician who’s trained to treat back pain conservatively. Consult with a spine surgeon who’s experienced in dealing with an array of back conditions.
