Spine care at the University of Iowa is provided by a multi-disciplinary team drawn together from across the institution. Depending upon the individual patient's needs, these teams may include experts in bone and joint health, brain and nervous system disorders, women's health, pain management, men's health, surgical services, sports medicine, the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center and many more. In addition, the University of Iowa is an important center for clinical trials which means patients may have access to experimental treatments for their diseases and conditions.
In 2013, Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield designated UI Hospitals and Clinics as a Blue Distinction Center™ in spine surgery.
