Oviedo, Fla. — Oviedo Medical Center has announced the opening of the Spine Care Center, providing a comprehensive range of solutions for patients suffering from back pain.

“At Oviedo Medical Center, we are committed to offering the safest, most effective surgeries with the latest technology,” said KC Donahey, CEO, Oviedo Medical Center. “The Spine Care Center will ensure each patient who comes to us with back pain knows the options available for treatment and receives the guidance and support they need for a successful recovery.”

The Spine Care Center provides the latest surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery to provide patients treatment options that lead to smaller incisions, less pain and minimal downtime. In addition, the availability of robotic technology helps to ensure safety and quality.

Using the Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform, the surgeon can develop a comprehensive surgical plan and visual outline of the procedure prior to and during surgery. This ensures accuracy and limits the amount of radiation to the patient as well as the surgical team. In addition, the use of minimally invasive techniques for many spine procedures provides the patient added benefits of less blood loss and lower risk of infection.

  “Our goal is to ensure we offer the technology and expertise that allows our patients suffering from a spine injury every opportunity to return to the lifestyle they enjoy,” said Pedro M. Ramirez, M.D., neurosurgeon.

The Spine Care Center at Oviedo Medical Center will provide solutions for a wide range of conditions, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, myelopathy, compression fractures, facet osteoarthritis, spondylolisthesis, degenerative scoliosis, kyphotic deformities and spasticity.
