  • Recognized excellence—Saint Luke's Hospital is designated a Blue Distinction Center+ for spine surgery, demonstrating expertise resulting in fewer complications and hospital readmissions.
  • Access to a team of experts—Our Multidisciplinary Spine & Pain Committee meets regularly to review patient cases and devise the best possible treatment plan, including surgical and nonsurgical options.
  • Intraoperative imaging—Utilizing the O-arm® Imaging and StealthStation® Navigation Systems, our experts deliver surgical accuracy using the technology’s enhanced, real-time 3-D images.Saint Luke’s Hospital is designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Spine Surgery by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, an independent licensee of Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
  • Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IOM)—under the guidance of a neurologist, a team monitors signals in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, decreasing the risk of injury to these structures during surgery.
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery—This option helps patients recover more quickly than traditional open spine surgery.
  • Complex spine surgery—This benefits patients with tumors, deformities, and other conditions.
