Dr. Raiszadeh shares how an interdisciplinary team approach can improve the care for a woman’s spine.
The interdisciplinary center pulls together all of the experts in the hospital that treat spine and pulls them all onto one floor. So this floor only involves spine specialists, including spine doctors as well as nurses, physical therapists–all honed into only spine problems.
And that’s unique because spine is an entity into itself. If you don’t take the spine as a whole, then you could miss a better approach to treating a patient by having one subspecialist who doesn’t really know what other options are available for that patient to be able to direct them into the right pathway.
