I commend you for the excellent care you provided to me. I feel great and will now be able to move on to a much more active life. Thank you and God bless you all.

Phoenix Spine Surgeon

Welcome to Phoenix Choice for Superb, Orthopedic Spine Surgery

Monday, May 25, 2015 - Desert Spine and Scoliosis Center (DSSC) enjoys a rapidly growing reputation as a venue for excellent spine surgery and skilled, caring spine surgeons, in Arizona.  Our medical director, Dr. Rafath Baig, not only leads with an emphasis on caring, attentive patient care but also on the utilization of a range of effective, modern Orthopedic Spine Surgery techniques.  For Arizona back and neck pain sufferers this creates a range of potential options for relief of their symptoms. 

Arizona is home to a number of spine surgeons but we believe that DSSC is distinguished by a few key points.  Firstly, we appreciate that behind every complicated sounding diagnosis, such as scoliosis, sciatica, cervical radiculopathy, myelopathy, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation and many more, there is a story of a real person whose life has been dramatically affected and limited by the condition.  We deal with people not simply diagnosis.  We aim to restore lives, not simply resolve pain.  Secondly, as Phoenix Spine Surgeon, Dr. Rafath Baig, emphasizes, the range of services that we offer is based upon high standards primarily grounded in safety, efficacy, patient comfort and convenience.   We are committed to finding the best solution to your spine pain, even if that does not involve spine surgery.  


We realize that the sudden onset of neck and shoulder pain, lower back and leg pain, numbness and weakness in the legs or any other type of symptom related to the spine can be very intimidating.  Rest assured, that the likelihood is that if you are experiencing a spine condition, we are most probably seen it many times before.  Our spine specialists believe that when you entrust us with your health and spine condition, you are offering us an opportunity to further establish our facility as the most caring venue in the metro Phoenix area for spine care. We are grateful for this and will make every reasonable effort to demonstrate our gratitude by providing you with caring, convenient and effective care.  We aim to create a community of raving patients who view us as Phoenix' top spine surgeons.

Our orthopedic spine center is located in Mesa, AZ but we routinely attend to patients from all over Arizona (and even some from beyond our state and country.)  DSSC works very closely with our partner surgical facilities, including Mountain Vista Medical Center, Mercy Gilbert Medical Center and Arizona Spine and Joint Hospital to provide our patients with a convenient and caring patient experience. We want to get you back to work, sport and/or life as soon as possible. We are constantly at work on minimizing patient wait times compared to other local facilities.  We realize that you want relief fast – we will take every reasonable measure to make this happen.

Our Phoenix spine surgeons, utilize modern technology in every facet of the patient experience from the point they enter our office to the actual surgical procedure itself where we used a number of modern technologies in surgical technique and patient safety.  If you are a Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler or Arizona patient suffering from any condition of the spine, we would love the opportunity to make you our next raving fan!


"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.
