A wealth of benefits in one convenient location
At the Orthopaedic & Spine Center, we have assembled a team of experienced, highly trained and compassionate surgeons, pain management specialists, nurses, physical therapists and athletic trainers who deliver seamlessly integrated, carefully coordinated care. Here, in this single location on our Brunswick Campus, you will receive the latest treatments designed to help you quickly return to your daily life.
The concept behind the Orthopaedic & Spine Center goes well beyond the hospital stay to encompass the entire experience. Our team members pay special attention to ensuring you understand your procedure, what you need to do before surgery, and what to expect afterward.
A facility like no other
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center is designed like a fine hotel, beautifully decorated with designer touches such as rich cherry wood paneling and warm tones. The spacious, suite-style private patient rooms allow increased patient maneuverability and include recliners for comfortable patient sitting, showers and toilets designed to accommodate surgery patient needs, sleeper sofas for overnight guests, and upgraded patient monitoring systems.
For enjoyment, each well-appointed room includes a flat-screen cable TV and DVD, wireless internet access, and daily delivery of The Brunswick News, all at no additional cost.
Design touches such as the art-glass walls of the dining and rehabilitation rooms add a level of refinement for a classic but functional approach.
The opportunity to move around the Center and interact with other patients creates a very supportive environment which is a key to a positive outcome. A dining area allows patients to gather together for meals and share experiences of the healing process. Patients and their coaches can attend classes in the conference center to learn about their surgical experience, recovery process and available resources after discharge. A large rehabilitation room is on the same floor for individual therapy and group sessions. Previously, patients had to go elsewhere in the hospital for therapy services.
An expert care team
The Orthopaedic & Spine Center has a distinguished staff of board-certified orthopaedic and spine surgeons who are knowledgeable, experienced and trained in the latest minimally invasive techniques.
A staff of highly trained nurses who specialize in orthopaedic and spine patient care support the compassionate and excellent care delivered at the Orthopaedic & Spine Center. The health care team ensures that you understand your procedure and what you should expect during the recovery process. This extra step ensures you receive the support you and your family need throughout your stay.
After surgery, skilled physical and/or occupational therapists begin providing therapy designed to maximize function and hasten recovery.

Common conditions we treat include:
- Degenerative disc disease
