Spine Care Specialists

Back and neck pain are very common orthopedic complaints. In many cases, the pain will resolve on its own. However, when it doesn’t, Drs. Robert Hurford and Stephan Esser can assist you in recovery. Understanding how back and neck pain can limit your activities and decrease your quality of life is crucial in the treatment of such issues. Both physicians will genuinely listen to your concerns and discuss your treatment options in terms you can understand. The goal is to restore pain-free motion so you can resume work or other physical activities as soon as possible. Robert Hurford, Jr., MD, PhD, specializes in the surgical treatment of and rehabilitation for the full spectrum of spine conditions, with a conservative approach. Stephan Esser, MD, is a physiatrist specializing in the non-surgical treatment of and rehabilitation for the full spectrum of spine conditions, working closely with Dr. Hurford to ensure all patients receive the precise individual care they need.

Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures

In the past, spine surgery meant extensive hospital stays and recovery time. With the advent of minimally invasive spine procedures, spine surgeries traditionally requiring length hospital stays can now be performed as outpatient spine surgery or can require shorter hospital stays. Southeast Orthopedic Specialists offers minimally invasive spine surgery performed by a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon.
