As the human body undergoes the natural aging process, wear and tear on the spine may cause discs (within the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine) to slowly wear out over an extended period. After these discs slowly erode, patients may soon notice pain that gradually intensifies. Once the pain from deteriorated discs prevents patients from living life to the fullest, it’s time to seek medical care from New Jersey’s #1 spine care center. Welcome to New Jersey Spine Specialists: your one-stop location for disc replacement surgery in northern New Jersey. Our board-certified spine experts will meet with each patient to prescribe the most appropriate treatment to maximize a patient’s recovery. Some of the most effective treatments to combat associated back pain include replacing or extracting the damaged vertebrae through an artificial disc replacement or complete disc replacement.
Locating the origin of pain and complete diagnosis for spine-related pain can be challenging, even for seasoned experts. But the spine surgeons at NJSS routinely diagnose and provide unmatched care and precise treatment to patients living throughout Essex County seeking pain relief.

Our unmatched service and care creates a relaxing environment for patients and doctors to collaboratively work to resolve instances of back pain.
Neck and back pain can surface from work-related injuries, personal injury or trauma, degenerative spine conditions, to deformities. As a result, symptoms will usually vary in each individual from discomfort and pain in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and sacrum regions of the spine. Patients often experience a tingling sensation in the arms and legs, weakness or muscle numbness, muscle spasms, and difficulty with balance, coordination, and fine motor skills. Patients showing these debilitating symptoms should immediately schedule a meeting with a New Jersey Spine Specialist doctor for a thorough evaluation.
