The Forefront of Back Pain

Hoag’s comprehensive Spine Center implements the EOSedge system, a leading imaging technology to enhance diagnosis and treatment of back pain.

The Hoag Spine Center is the first in Orange County to implement the EOSedge system, a leading-edge imaging technology to treat back pain. This technology combines X-ray, low-dose radiation modulation, and an innovative design to capture high-resolution images. These help physicians make well-informed diagnoses and develop personalized treatment plans. “Because spine issues can result in shoulder, hip, and knee discomfort, being able to see the entire skeleton and the pain points created by the spinal alignment helps patients better understand their pain and allows physicians to pinpoint underlying problems in a timelier fashion,” said Burak Ozgur, MD, director of Hoag’s Spine Center. Hoag’s comprehensive Spine Center is a recognized leader and provider of the most advanced non-operative and minimally invasive treatment options available. Adam Kanter, MD, associate executive medical director of the Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute, said of the technology: “It enables us to see the entire spine, its interconnections and balance points, so we can treat the underlying condition that caused the disc to rupture or the bone to slip. The EOS helps us understand why the problem occurred, not just that it did occur.”
