Spine Surgery

McFarland Clinic offers the full spectrum of spine surgery, treating various neck and spine conditions that cause pain as well as deformities like scoliosis.

What to Expect

Our goal is to understand the problem from your point of view. We'll ask you about the condition you're facing, review imaging scans, and work with you to determine the best treatment plan to help you recover.

Life After Spine Surgery

Whether you're facing surgical or non-surgical treatment, we want to help you get to the other side of your problem and back to the life and activities you enjoy.
