An ORA Orthopedic Doctor Can Provide You
with Specialized Spinal Care in the Quad Cities

Put chronic back pain behind you by consulting with an orthopedic doctor at ORA Orthopedics. As the Quad Cities’ largest and most comprehensive provider of orthopedic care, our practice has helped countless patients throughout Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, and neighboring communities find lasting relief from musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

If you are living with persistent discomfort from a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, sciatica, bone spurs, scoliosis, kyphosis, degenerative disc disease or another spinal problem, you are not alone. Back pain affects individuals of many ages. The spine is tasked with bearing the body’s weight and facilitating motion, which renders it particularly vulnerable to injury and degeneration. That is why ORA Orthopedics provides a full spectrum of diagnostic and treatment services at our Spine Center of Excellence. Here, your concerns will be heard by an orthopedic doctor and a team of nurses with the specialized expertise necessary to accurately diagnose and individually treat your condition, helping you safely return to the activities you enjoy.

Every orthopedic doctor at the ORA Orthopedics Spine Center of Excellence in the Quad Cities takes a conservative approach to treatment that focuses on promoting comfort, mobility and function without surgical intervention, if possible. We do this by practicing the latest advances in non-surgical therapies, such as physical therapy, medications and spinal injections. In the event that your condition does not improve after conservative treatment, your orthopedic doctor will thoroughly explain your surgical options, which may include minimally invasive procedures that require only small incisions and can provide a more streamlined recovery process.

Patients are always the focus at ORA Orthopedics. We encourage open communication between each patient and your orthopedic doctor at every stage of the diagnostic and treatment process. By treating every patient like a member of the ORA family, we reinforce our commitment to your orthopedic care.

Contact ORA Orthopedics today to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic doctor at our practice. We are proud to care for patients of all ages across the Quad Cities.
