Becoming a Patient


“WE DON’T TREAT PAIN, WE TREAT PEOPLE WITH PAIN”

At the Prairie Spine and Pain Institute our priority is the patient. We know that each patient is an individual, with unique pain. At the Prairie Spine and Pain Institute your treatment will be specific to you. We perform a comprehensive list of complex spine procedures tailored to each patient’s specific condition, as well as non-surgical options. We take a comprehensive, individual approach to patients suffering from back pain, treating both the mind and body, to promote a successful and lasting outcome.
