RWJ Back and Spine Surgeons

RWJ Back and Spine SurgeonsIf your back pain or spinal troubles are enough for you to search for RWJ back and spine surgeons, contact Jersey Spine Associates. We treat patients with back injuries and deformities from three locations in South Jersey.

Our orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Ravi K. Ponnappan, MD, is authorized to perform surgical procedures at Robert Wood Johnson hospitals in Hamilton and New Brunswick. For over ten years, Dr. Ponnappan has successfully helped patients through surgery and therapy to heal from most every type of spinal ailment.

Occasional mild back pain is not likely a cause for concern. But if the problem worsens and it becomes more difficult to enjoy your life, you should seek treatment. Chronic back pain likely has a root cause and won’t just go away with time. If you’re feeling numbness in your legs, or you’re having bladder control problems, call for treatment immediately…this could be a more serious condition.

In your initial appointment with our staff, we will give you a physical and review your medical history to diagnose your pain. Dr. Ponnappan will consult with you and explain your treatment options. Please be sure to bring previous X-ray, MRI or CT scan results with you or have them faxed here.

Whether your condition requires a discectomy or disc replacement, spinal fusion, or laser surgery, we can perform minimally invasive procedures to help you heal from your pain and enjoy your life again. Dr. Ponnappan is fellowship trained in advanced techniques, and has been rated as one of the top orthopaedic spine surgeons in South Jersey.
