We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Back pain can severely impede your quality of life. If you’re one of many Americans with back pain, you will find hope at Good Samaritan Medical Center. At our Joint and Spine Institute, we evaluate the pain and stiffness caused by walking, standing or sitting up. Just know that you don’t have to live with back pain.
Beyond back pain
We do more than treat back pain. We can address all issues related to your spine and its complex relationship with your brain, an area of medicine called neuropathy.
We believe there are many options for back pain and surgery is one of them. More conservative, noninvasive treatments including pain management and physical therapy have shown tremendous results in many of our patients. If these options fail, then surgery may be a good option.
