      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Carey's Care Philosophy

      At Jax Spine, we focus on providing individualized care for our patients.  Our staff initially concentrates on documenting detailed information related to a patient's condition and the effect acute or chronic pain has had on their life.  We then work closely with the individual to develop a treatment program specific to their needs, aimed at increasingly eliminating unnecessary pain and improving their quality of life. Our physicians practice advanced techniques, including interventional procedures, medication management, and rehabilitation or a combination of these to address complex and multidimensional pain syndromes.  Because every patient's pain level and diagnosis is different, treatment plans are highly individualized.  Throughout these processes, our highly trained physicians and staff document and assess the progress of a patient, and work with them to progressively tailor their treatment program to  achieve the best possible results.
