California Spine Center
Treating Spinal Injuries With Care
Welcome to the California Spine Center (CSC) at Pacific Hospital of Long Beach.
In conjunction with leading orthopedic medical groups in the area, we offer immediate, comprehensive evaluation and treatment of spinal disorders. Through commitment to compassionate patient care and effective teamwork, our Spine Center of Excellence produces small miracles every day – and restores our patients to the best possible health.
TOTAL CASE MANAGEMENT
The Center recognizes that successful outcomes depend on effective, carefully coordinated management of the medical, surgical, hospital, therapeutic, and ancillary services required by each patient. That is why all of our medical team leaders and administrators are well versed in orthopedic case management, and receive expert support from affiliated orthopedic medical / surgical groups and on-site rehabilitation therapists.
The California Spine Center at Pacific Hospital is affiliated with leading orthopedic surgeons and medical / surgical groups in the area, and has established a close working relationship with these groups that jointly focuses on optimum patient care, coordination of medical documentation and reports, and accessible on-site consultation.
COMPREHENSIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND REHABILITATION
Physical, occupational, and / or speech therapy can be an integral part of a patient’s recovery protocol.
To effectively meet this requirement, the Center operates a rehabilitation center to provide patients with easy access to follow-up treatment and ongoing coordinated care.
ACCESSIBLE ANCILLARY SERVICES
To further support our goal of providing comprehensive orthopedic care, the Center maintains the latest diagnostic and therapeutic imaging and laboratory equipment.
EFFECTIVE PAIN MANAGEMENT PROTOCOLS
The Center believes that effective pain management is an important component in orthopedic treatment, allowing each patient to focus on the rehabilitation program with minimal discomfort.
HIGHLY-TRAINED MEDICAL SUPPORT TEAMS
All of the Center’s medical support staff have been specially trained to meet the unique needs of patients with spinal disorders. Because Pacific Hospital of Long Beach is a teaching hospital, staff members receive regular exposure to top medical practitioners and educators, and participate in regular seminars and workshops on all topics related to orthopedic care.
Because a significant number of the Center’s patients are physically challenged, we offer door-to-door van service throughout Southern California, fully coordinated with surgery and treatment schedules, and specially designed to alleviate the travel discomforts normally associated with orthopedic follow-up care.
