Vermont is home to the Taconic Mountain Range, as it is home to Taconic Spine — a new spine center with a home office in Manchester, along with patient consultation in Bennington and Rutland. Recognizing that the best care of back and neck pain problems is provided through a multidisciplinary spine center approach, Taconic Orthopaedics created Taconic Spine in 2011 as its spine specialty center. Taconic Spine combines the expertise of Dr. Dan Robbins, a fellowshiptrained orthopaedic spine surgeon, and Dr. Rob Giering, a fellowship-trained specialist in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
Part of the problem with complex conditions like spine is that care is often highly fragmented and biased. Too many times, the patient receives recommendations and a treatment plan that is strongly biased to the type of physician seen. What makes Taconic Spine unique is the use of protocols that emphasize nonsurgical treatment options in advance of spine surgery. Taconic Spine includes X-ray and an injection suite and is affiliated with spine-specialized therapist, John DiBlasio, MPT, DPT, CSCS, who has advanced training in back pain and neck pain.
If spine surgery is needed, Taconic Spine uses the most advanced minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and instrumentation that can enable a patient to have simple spine surgery in the morning and be home later the same day. The spine center emphasizes non-surgical treatment options as well as spine surgery capabilities to help the back or neck pain sufferer avoid the hassle and inconvenience of multiple referrals around town, delayed care, or fragmented and biased treatments.

For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted nonsurgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the next step in resolving a spine problem. Because spine surgery is a serious decision, it is a good idea to obtain a second opinion from a board-certified and fellowship-trained spine surgeon before undergoing surgery.GET A SECOND OPINION
