Spine Center Information for Referring Physicians

Our Approach to Spine Care

Streamline the Path to the Right Care Plan

We sort through the complexities of spine conditions and bring the right specialty care to your patient. Often we can do this in one visit, because of our multispecialty model.

Simple Referral Process

Our specialists will work with you to provide outstanding spinal care for your patients. To refer your patient to BIDMC's Spine Center, please email us or call 617-754-9000.

Recommending Nonsurgical Options for Most Patients

Communicating with You as Partners

We know that our communication is crucial to your ongoing care for your patients. We stay in contact via multiple methods.
