Houston, TX, December 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- As a complete spine center that takes great pride in continually improving its efforts to provide patients with the best education and highest standard of care, the Comprehensive Spine Institute of Richmond Bone and Joint Clinic (RBJC) is excited to announce its participation in the Spine Center Excellence program of Spine-health, a leading online resource for patients with back pain, neck pain and other symptoms related to the spine.
Educating patients on the top spine centers in the United States and then allowing them to connect via Spine-health.com, the Spine Center Excellence Program is an ambitious, noble initiative that shares similar goals to the RBJC Comprehensive Spine Institute, the only facility in the greater Houston Metro area to provide physical therapy, imaging, surgical care, orthopedic spinal surgeons and pain management specialists all under one roof.
“Covering all aspects of spinal care, the RBJC Comprehensive Spine Institute truly lives up to its designation as a “comprehensive” spine center that provides patients with a multitude of treatment options as opposed to limiting them to just one form of care,” according to Dr. Mohammad Etminan, Spine Surgeon at Richmond Bone & Joint Clinic. “When considering that Spine-health.com provides patients with diverse, unbiased information on available treatment options rather than championing specific procedures ahead of others, we feel that this partnership is a strong ideological fit with exciting possibilities for not only our clinic but the spine community as a whole.”
Comprised of a spine surgeon, several orthopedic surgeons, an interventional pain management specialist, and a chiropractor who are all recognized for their academic and medical achievements, the dedicated team at the RBJC Comprehensive Spine Institute is founded on providing well-rounded, efficient, cost-effective and timely care for its patients. In addition to developing individualized treatment plans for patients dealing with arthritis, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and many other spinal-related conditions, the medical professionals at the Comprehensive Spine Institute work closely together to help patients recover from disease and return to their highest level of functioning as soon as possible.
Working with Spine-health – which is viewed by nearly 1 million visitors each month – is a great way for the Richmond Bone and Joint Clinic Comprehensive Spine Clinic to be exposed to more prospective patients and help them achieve positive and meaningful results via its multidisciplinary approach.
Dr. Etminan further explains, “Having our wonderful personnel listed on Spine-health, both on a Comprehensive Spine Institute profile page and individual doctor pages, is a perfect vehicle to further promote our unique emphasis on arriving at treatments that incorporate and leverage the expertise of all our different specialties. Considering Spine-health’s popularity and reputation in the online space, we look forward to attracting and working with new patients in Texas and ultimately showing them that we were the right place for them, as evident in successful treatment plans that provided effective pain relief and allowed them to live more fulfilling lives”.
