SCO Spine Center Now Open!
St. Croix Orthopaedics new Spine Center opens Monday, July 7, at High Pointe Health Campus in Lake Elmo, MN. SCO’s Spine Center is a full-service spine clinic that houses surgical and non-surgical spine specialists, spine therapy, X-ray services, and MRI in one convenient, first-floor location.
“The goals in building a centrally-located Spine Center were to improve patient access and satisfaction, and streamline each patient’s care,” said SCO Chief Executive Officer Melanie Sullivan, Ed.D. “In order to accomplish this, we’re not only evolving how we schedule spine patients to help them receive immediate, appropriate care, we’re shifting the focus on how we support spine patients—from providing expert physician assistants to Pain Management and Rehabilitation (PM&R) specialists and therapy to a high level of surgical services with our spine surgeons. Honing each touch-point with the patient is key in helping patients achieve successful outcomes.”
SCO providers available for appointments at the Spine Center include spine surgeons Bruce Bartie, DO, and Christian DuBois, MD; PM&R (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) specialist Eric Kirksson, MD; Chad Hemminger, PA-C, Kate Erickson, PA-C, Todd Holter, PA-C, and spine therapist Ann Marie Wezel, PT.
