Arizona orthopedic spine surgeons in phoenixArizona's Choice for Excellence in Orthopedic Spine Surgery

Saturday, December 20, 2014 - Desert Spine and Scoliosis Center (DSSC) of Mesa, AZ.  Our Medical Director and Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Baig welcomes you.  As a new patient considering your options with respect to dealing with your spine condition, it can be challenging selecting a Spine Surgeon.  We believe that DSSC offers more than just a range of modern orthopedic surgical techniques.  Each member of our spine center staff is 100% committed to excellence in patient care.  This begins with understanding the great difficulty that your persistent spine pain is creating in your life.  For this reason we strongly emphasize a caring environment that stresses patient convenience as an important standard.  We realize that perhaps you are suffering from pain for the first time.  This might mean encountering some pretty intimidating diagnosis' such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, disc herniation, cervical myelopathy, radiculopathy and sciatica.  Rest assured that no matter what your diagnosis, we have more than likely encountered and helped others with your condition a great many times before.  We are spine specialists.

In our ongoing goal to offer the services of the finest phoenix spine surgeons, Dr. Baig emphasizes that while a number of the techniques we offer may be considered cutting-edge, we are not a center that selects our services based on the latest trends or gimmicks.  We offer services and techniques that we believe are most likely to bring about relief in the shortest, safest and most convenient manner possible.  We believe that every case of back or neck pain offers us an opportunity to further progress our growing reputation for quality spine surgery.

Many of our patients are reluctant to consult a qualified spine surgeon due to fear.  This may be due to concerns over ability to afford care or questions as to the safety spinal surgery.   On each of these fronts, we believe that we have made more than reasonable efforts to offer above par service.  To enhance the safety of every spine surgery we perform, we utilize cutting-edge technologies such as neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (IOM) to assist in producing good outcomes.  On the financial front, our staff is always willing to consider the financial status of every patient, consistently making every reasonable effort to accommodate each patient.  This includes accepting a range of health insurance plans.

DSSC already enjoys a growing reputation for treating patients from Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler and other areas in Arizona.  Our objective with each patient that chooses to trust us with their care is to provide more than relief from neck and back pain.  We strive to create raving fans from each patient.


"If you live in the Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler or surrounding areas in Arizona and you suffer from neck, lower back, leg and or arm pain, there are a number of spine surgeons for you to choose from in your search for relief. We believe that no phoenix spine specialist will respect your time and your patient experience more than the staff at Desert Spine and Scoliosis Center. By allowing us to help you, you take us one step closer to our goal of becoming the Southwest's finest Orthopedic Spine Surgery Center. We value your trust in us - Thank You!" Dr. Rafath Baig, M.D.
