Spine and Back
St. Mary's of Michigan and its highly experienced neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons have built one of the state's largest spinal surgery programs. At its core is their dedication to seeking out cutting-edge groundbreaking techniques that are less invasive than traditional surgeries.
With reduced hospital stays, reduced recovery time, less blood loss, and minimal risk of infection -- patients are pain free and back to normal life in time periods only dreamed of in the past.
With their reputation for legendary care, the brain, back and stroke experts at St. Mary's of Michigan are often tapped by device manufacturers and researchers to help take advances in neurosciences from laboratory to bedside.
