Spine Center – UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital

UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital has an innovative and advanced multidisciplinary and multispecialty center for the diagnosis and treatment of spine disorders and diseases.

Spine Center: A Personalized Multidisciplinary Pathway

At our facility, we are committed to offering a comprehensive and individualized approach to the health and well-being of our patients, ensuring the highest quality care and management of the healing journey.

Our comprehensive and integrated program spans the entire health care pathway, from prevention to diagnosis, therapy to rehabilitation, and includes:

  • Specialist consult for prevention. From the age of development, we promote a healthy lifestyle through nutrition education and regular physical activity.
  • Specialist consults in orthopedics, endocrinology, physiatry. These medical consultations allow multidisciplinary diagnosis and prescription of further tests when necessary.
  • Diagnostic exams. We use hematochemical, endocrinological exams and various radiodiagnostic techniques (Conventional Radiology, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging - MRI, Radiography - RX, Shoulder Ultrasound, CT, Bone Densitometry, MOC, 3D Spine).
  • Personalized treatment program. Our team of specialists creates an individualized treatment based on the diagnosis and exams results. This program may include minimally invasive surgery (laser, percutaneous surgery, endoscopy), open surgery, pain therapy, regenerative medicine, and preventive, preoperative, and postoperative physiotherapy.

Spine3D™ Technology

The Spine Center at UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital integrates advanced Spine3D™ technology, a non-invasive three-dimensional spine reconstruction system (Raster Stereography). This innovative technology allows accurate assessment of the spine for multiple pathologies, including:

  • Complex trauma (road, private or workplace accidents).
  • Curved back.
  • Scoliosis (most common during puberty or menopause).
  • Specific cervical problems.
  • Spinal deformity resulting from severe osteoporosis.
  • Tilted pelvis.
  • Vertebral instability with suspected listhesis.

A significant advantage of Spine3D™ technology is the absence of risks associated with traditional radiological examinations because it uses infrared radiation.  This instrument is suitable for different categories of people, including children, pregnant women, athletes, and frail individuals.

Who are the Services of Spine Center Suitable for?

Our Center welcomes people of all ages: adults, children, and the elderly, who can benefit from our services if:

  • They cannot undergo radiodiagnostic testing for various reasons (such as pregnancy or anxiety about radiation) and therefore may opt for examination with Spine 3D technology.
  • They have already received a diagnosis for a spinal disorder and want a second opinion.
  • They suffer from back pain or cervicalgia.

Remember the importance of not ignoring the signals sent by the body. A simple back pain could conceal more significant problems that, if ignored, could lead to serious complications. A preventive approach not only allows early diagnosis of the problem, but also allows the specialist to develop a more effective treatment plan.
