Spine Surgeon

St. Joseph’s Health has a Universal Masking policy that requires colleagues, patients, and visitors to wear a St. Joseph’s Health issued mask in our facilities. You will be given a mask upon entering the facility. Universal Masking requires any patient to wear a mask when outside their room. When possible, patients should wear masks when within 6-feet of others, including healthcare workers. This is to remain diligent in all preventive practices and provide protection as well as the safest care possible. If you do not have a mask available, please ask your health care team for one. We thank you for your assistance with these practices.

Thank you for choosing St. Joseph's Health Hospital for your surgery!

We offer various options to help you prepare for your surgery:

You will be given a handbook in preadmission testing (PAT); this handbook contains information about the hospital, and your Spine Surgery
