About Us

OUR GUIDING PHILOSOPHIES

international-spine-centre-speed-matters

Speed matters when pain’s involved

We understand that when you’re in pain it’s incredibly hard to focus on anything else. So we do everything we can to ensure your journey with us is as fast and to the point as possible.

international-spine-centre-collaboration

Collaborative treatment
works best

There simply isn’t one best treatment or single specialist with all the answers. Results can only come from an inter-disciplinary approach making sure you get the right treatment when you need it.

international-spine-centre-informed-patient

Use an informed-patient approach

There’s no such thing as standard treatment so we always explain the pros and cons of all medical and non-medical options available to you. This means you can make an informed decision – because ultimately it’s your body and your choice.

international-spine-centre-lifestyle-goals

Focus on lifestyle goals

We’ve found the best results don’t come from looking for an absence of pain, but by focusing on the lifestyle that’s possible beyond it. So we work to not just remove the pain, but to build a more rewarding and richer life while we do it.
