NSPC Brain and Spine Surgery now brings to the community, as an extension of our offices, the NSPC Mobile Van to examine and evaluate patients with spine disorders.
Onboard the Mobile Van there are brand new examination rooms staffed by our board-certified neurosurgeons. The idea is to bring expert spine care to the workplace, so patients won’t be inconvenienced by missing a half a day or even a full day of work, but still get a full evaluation.
WHO SHOULD VISIT?
We will be focused on patients with cervical and lumbar disorders, back pain, neck pain, arm pain, numbness and weakness and leg pain, numbness, and weakness.
Certain conditions that we address include cervical and lumbar disc disease, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, slipped disc or vertebra, spondylolisthesis, spinal cord compression fractures, spinal cysts, and patients who have had prior spinal surgeries or would like a second opinion.
APPOINTMENTS, MADE EASY.
Prior to visiting our Mobile Unit, patients will have an opportunity to fill out their important medical information on our website and will call and schedule an appointment on the day the van is scheduled to be at the patient’s workplace.
The patient will only be responsible for the copay of their insurance.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR EVALUATION?
The doctor will take a patient's history and then perform a neurological examination.
If a patient has prior imaging, then they would be encouraged to bring their MRI or current studies.
On board we have Wi-Fi and a computer that will already have the patient's electronic medical record so not to waste a patient’s time filling out forms.
We will be able to review the patient's prior studies, or we will be able to order new MRIs from a radiology center or any up-to-date studies necessary to best evaluate the patient’s current clinical problem.
AFTER YOUR EVALUATION, YOU’LL RECEIVE A PERSONALIZED TREATMENT PLAN:
Based on the findings of their visit, the doctor will recommend a treatment plan.
This might consist of ordering imaging studies for which a patient may follow up in the private office of the physician or with a telemedicine visit to go over results.
Patients may also be recommended several conservative treatment options including physical therapy, pain management, chiropractic care, medicines, or if clinically indicated surgical solutions to their problem.
