Who We Are


At some point in their lives, one in five people will suffer some form of serious spinal pain. While many patients who are referred to a spine surgeon will not need an operation, for some, surgical intervention is the only course of action that will improve their quality of life and independence, and offer freedom from pain.

The Vancouver Spine Surgery Institute, a highly specialized organization within Vancouver General Hospital, is where those seeking relief from their chronic spine and spinal cord conditions can finally begin their journey of recovery.
