The University of Maryland Spine Program offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art evaluation and non-surgical and surgical treatment of all spinal disorders.
Faculty members limit their practice to spinal disorders. With the diversity of experience and expertise afforded by our faculty, all regions of the spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral) are covered.
Furthermore, as part of an academic medical center, our physicians are all on the University of Maryland School of Medicine faculty.
Dr. Steven Ludwig, Dr. Daniel Gelb, and Dr. Eugene Koh have experience treating spinal degenerative disease (such as lumbar spinal stenosis) and traumatic disorders and deformity (scoliosis, kyphosis).
We are also using minimally invasive techniques, such as a new spinal fusion technique to treat a variety of conditions, including vertebral compression fractures. We're also using the first spinal disc replacement approved by the FDA to treat patients with degenerative disc disease. These techniques tend to shorten the time patients spend in the hospital and speed recovery time as well.
