Welcome to the spinal clinic

Dr. John Ferguson

Get the care you deserve

Your best chance at a short recovery is receiving the highest-quality care – for both your body and your mind.

That’s why we make sure you have the information and support you need to feel comfortable and confident at every step.

At your first appointment, non-invasive high-tech imaging will help us assess the issue. From there, you’ll sit down with your team to discuss your prognosis and treatment options.

If you need surgery, we’ll be there to help you prepare and take care of you afterwards, including regular follow-ups throughout your recovery.
