Millions of Americans suffer from back pain. It can make daily activities difficult and sometimes unbearable. The specialists that make up our Spine Team are fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons, physical medicine specialists, and non-surgical spine specialists. We offer a full spectrum of non-surgical and surgical treatment of spinal disorders, encompassing trauma, degenerative, and deformity conditions. Should surgery be necessary our Spine Team offers minimally invasive procedures such as microdiscectomy, kyphoplasty, and spine fusion.

In the Hudson Valley, we are fortunate to have five of the finest spine specialists right here at Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County. Dr. William T. Barrick, Dr. Richard B. Perkins, Dr. Nicholas Renaldo, Dr. Richard Dentico and Dr. Vishal Rekhala have highly specialized training in the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for the treatment of spine disorders including herniated discs, back and neck pain, vertebral compression fractures, scoliosis, and spinal instability.
