Danilo Silva, MD, a renowned neurosurgeon on the Northwell Health Phelps Spine Institute team, commented, “Most people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives, but not all back pain is the same. We offer solutions for all kinds of back problems, from muscle-related conditions to more serious issues involving the spine. We employ the latest techniques, as well as tried-and-true methods; conservative treatment options, as well as advanced procedures. Back pain is an individual problem that requires individual solutions.”
In addition to back pain, some of the conditions treated include neck pain, disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, sacroiliac (SI) joint pain, spondylosis and spondylolsisthesis, and spinal injury. To ensure optimal care, Northwell Health Phelps Spine Institute specialists collaborate on the planning and delivery of services, including in- and out-patient physical therapy and rehabilitation following surgery.
“Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, some people delayed seeking help for spine problems,” said Dr. Silva. “Now that the rate of infection in Westchester County is more manageable, it is a good time to make an appointment with us, before a spine condition becomes even more serious.”
