At University Spine Center, a team of dedicated physicians, surgeons and health professionals combine medical management, physical therapy and pain management therapies to address pediatric and adult spine care with compassion and expertise.     

“Our mission is to alleviate pain, improve function and enhance quality of life for patients suffering from spine disorders,” says Dr. Arash Emami, the founder of University Spine Center and director of scoliosis surgery at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

Improving Patients’ Quality of Life

Dr. Emami works alongside Dr. Ki Soo Hwang, Dr. Kumar Sinha and Dr. Michael Faloon, who are fellowship trained in spine surgery and board certified in orthopedic surgery, and Dr. Pamela D’Amato, a fellowship-trained and board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain management physician.

The doctors evaluate each patient’s spine disorder case by case, considering a range of treatments. They strive to help patients return to an improved quality of life as quickly as possible and always take the time to listen to their patients to collaborate on individualized treatment plans. “Our goal is to make people better, not to operate on everyone,” Dr. Hwang says.

Performing Minimally-Invasive Surgeries

Experts in pediatric and adult scoliosis, the doctors use cutting-edge techniques to perform minimally-invasive surgeries that are central to the practice—procedures that allow many patients to go home just hours after their surgery and result in fewer complications and high patient satisfaction. “When surgery is the only option, our success rate is exemplary,” Dr. Sinha says.

The surgeons conduct clinical research and teach residents at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where Dr. Emami serves as chairman of the orthopedic department.
