Seattle Spine Institute specializes in treating problems affecting the lower back. At the office in Seattle, Washington, Paul E. Schwaegler, MD, and Jeff Fernandez, PA, take the time to understand each person, empowering every patient with knowledge about their condition and treatment options.
The team at Seattle Spine Institute treats patients with empathy, respect, and compassion. They understand that spine conditions, such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease, often cause extreme, debilitating pain that dramatically affects the quality of life.
They also understand that making decisions about the best treatment can be confusing and overwhelming. The team never rushes patients through the process. They explain non-surgical and surgical options, include patients in every step of their spinal care, and provide the treatments that meet their unique physical and psychological needs.
The team begins spine treatments with conservative therapies, recommending minimally invasive spine surgery only when symptoms don’t improve. As an experienced and skilled board-certified spine surgeon, Dr. Schwaegler performs many procedures, including total disc replacements, spinal decompression, sacroiliac joint fusions, and spondylolisthesis surgery.
