Parnassus Heights - Spine

The UCSF Spine Service is comprised of a team of physicians, nurses and physical therapists working collaboratively to develop treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s needs. Our goal is to improve the patient’s quality of life, decrease pain, enhance function and return to work where appropriate. We are actively involved in educating physicians and nurses from around the world. An ongoing research program endeavors to improve patient outcomes by increasing the understanding of the basic causes of spinal disorders and developing new treatments based on this research.
