At Monterey Spine & Joint, our safe and effective team approach to neurological, back and neck problems emphasizes nonsurgical options. We offer the expertise of nonsurgical specialists, therapists and spine-specialized surgeons – all under one roof. We are proponents of minimally invasive spine surgery, with a smaller incision, less painful recovery and a faster return to activity. Patients frequently return home the same day of their procedure. But if more extensive surgery is appropriate, you could not be in better hands. We are fully qualified to give you all the information you need to make a confident choice. Our highly accomplished and exceptionally qualified surgeons represent the best in modern medicine.


Many patients seek relief from back and neck pain and from neurological concerns.

Problems with the brain and spine hit at the center of a person’s health and well-being. Some related problems are strikingly common, as sufferers of back and neck pain know. Such pain can range from inconvenient to debilitating and involve the muscles, nerves, discs and other physical and mental components.

Many such difficulties are little more than a painful muscle strain, but it’s important to know the source of the problem. Sometimes a problem is age-related, the result of a sports activity, or points to a hereditary cause. Delaying treatment, however, frequently just makes matters worse. The good news is there are solutions.

Some Problems we can treat include:

  • Neurological Problems
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Disc Problems
  • Bone Spurs
  • Spinal Deformity Stenosis
  • Spondylosis
  • Spinal Tumors


Advanced technology and highly trained physicians to solve brain and spine problems.

Monterey Spine & Joint provides advanced medical professionals and state-of-the art technology to address a broad range of problems related to the brain and spine. Some conditions account for a set of symptoms that can be difficult to sort out. Detailed, exacting examination and diagnosis play a key role.

We rely on state-of-the-art skills and technology to pinpoint the problem and help us guide the patient to healing and relief. In many cases, an exercise program alone can result in lasting recovery.
