Spinal Conditions & Treatments


Beacon Spine is the most comprehensive spine care program in the Greater Cincinnati, Dayton (Miamisburg) and Southeastern Indiana areas that offers quick access to a dedicated spine physician. Whether the spinal disorder is minor or major, surgical or non-surgical, the spine specialists at Beacon can diagnose and treat all problems related to the adult or pediatric spine in a swift and efficient manner.

Beacon uses digital x-ray, electrodiagnostic and both open and high-field MRI on-site to assist in diagnosing the spinal condition. Physical therapy, bracing and therapeutic spinal injections are conveniently provided at our main Beacon offices. If surgical intervention is needed, our physicians operate at our Summit Woods Surgery Center, Beacon West Surgery Center, The Christ Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, and West Chester Medical Center. Appointments with one of the Beacon Spine physicians can be made with one phone call and every effort will be made to schedule the patient as soon as possible. Pre-appointment testing is not needed, but patients are encouraged to bring any recent testing with them.
