Most would agree that lifestyle, livelihood and recreation choices depend on a strong back and flexible joints that are pain free. In too many cases, pervasive pain inhibits normally active people and negatively impacts their ability to work and enjoy life.

If you are among the millions of people who suffer unnecessarily due to back, neck and joint conditions caused by trauma, illness or aging, then it’s time to turn to some of the best surgeons and hospital care available in Central Virginia.


Our team of experts is driven to assess and treat musculoskeletal disorders that lead to pain and immobility. Advanced procedures including MAKOplasty robotic surgery, minimally-invasive knee and hip resurfacing, as well as partial hip resurfacing, joint replacement and revision surgery, orthopedic spine surgery, and other specialized procedures, are available to relieve pain and help patients return to normal activities.

Our multidisciplinary spine team consists of surgeons, pain physicians and nurses working together to provide a personalized plan tailored to the individual needs of our patients. Each professional specializes in disorders of the back and neck and can provide a comprehensive plan using the most advanced technology and the very best in treatment plans.

Unique to Chippenham and Johnston-Willis Hospitals is our Spine Patient Navigator, who helps you move seamlessly through the surgical continuum of care. Through each step of the process, our navigator, a trained nurse, guides patients and their families by offering emotional, case management and educational support.

Our navigator assists patients and their families with every aspect of care from answering last minute questions before the day of surgery, to guiding and updating the family member of their loved one’s progression. After the surgery, the navigator personally helps patients to verify all orders have been met and explore anything that may be missed to assist in improving a higher level of satisfaction.
