Philosophy of Care
At the Englewood Surgery Center, all aspects of care centers around the patient and their needs. Our team of medical experts believes successful treatment of spinal problems depends on:
- Patient Respect
Everyone at Englewood Surgery Center is committed to treating each patient in a respectable, considerate, and dignified way. Throughout consultation, examination, case discussion, and treatment - all matters are handled in a confidential and discreet manner. Patients can expect all communication and records pertaining to care will be treated as confidential to the extent permitted by law.
- Patient Education
Well-informed patients make better decisions about their health care. Englewood Surgery Center takes the time necessary to educate each patient individually about their spinal disorder and treatment options. Our educational resources include 3D anatomical models, videos, and computer presentations.
- Integrated Team Approach to Patient Care
Spinal problems are among medicine's most complex treatment challenges. Englewood Surgery Center's integrated team approach works together with each patient to provide exceptional patient-centered medical care.
Our team includes a broad range of specialties including nonsurgical and surgical experts in orthopaedic spine surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, physiatry, pain medicine and pharmacology, physical therapy and rehabilitation, massage therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture.
- Advanced Patient Treatment
We view surgery as the last treatment option after appropriate nonoperative therapies are provided. Many patients are successfully treated with nonoperative therapies, such as medication and physical therapy and never require surgery!
However, when spine surgery is necessary, patients can be assured that Englewood Surgery Center is one of the most advanced spine surgical centers in the world. Englewood Surgery Center's surgeons make it their mission to remain at the forefront of emerging technologies. Although we are always the first to adopt these technologies in our region, no new surgical technique is ever introduced at Englewood Surgery Center until we are convinced of its safety and effectiveness.
Furthermore, many innovative Englewood Surgery Center surgeons are instrumental in developing new devices and techniques, and work with the medical device industry to advance spine technologies.
