The Spine Institute is the leader in minimally invasive spinal surgery, non-fusion spine technology and artificial disc replacement to treat back pain and neck pain. Located in Northern Colorado, The Spine Institute cares for patients regionally, nationally, and internationally. Why? The reason is simple: spine research, especially in the area of spinal surgery and artificial disc replacement. There is more spine research conducted at The Spine Institute than in all the hospitals in the Rocky Mountain region, including clinical trials and research on products such as the Coflex® implant, the AxioMed Spine Freedom Lumbar Disc, the NeoDisc™ cervical replacement device, and many others.
Through these FDA trials and the status of being the first in Colorado and the country to perform numerous artificial disc replacement procedures and other non-fusion spine surgeries, The Spine Institute’s fellowship-trained spine surgeons, Dr. Kenneth Pettine and Dr. E. Jeffrey Donner, have a solid reputation of pioneering innovation.
The Spine Institute is a national Spine Center of Excellence, where you’ll find some of the most experienced spine surgeons in Northern Colorado, the state, and in the country. They are dedicated to introducing and developing bold, new spine treatments, including artificial disc replacements and non-fusion spine technologies, while perfecting existing ones to improve the quality of life for their patients.
