Patient Support

Because spine care is complex, we understand you will have many questions along your patient journey.

Making you comfortable with your care plan is our primary goal. Your needs and preferences are carefully integrated into every decision. Communication is the key.

Nurse Navigators play a vital role in a patient’s spine care. You will be assigned a Nurse Navigator who will serve as your point of contact for all questions and questions. We’ve made it easy to stay in touch with your Nurse Navigator through Force Therapeutics, which is an interactive online care platform. This service, offered at no additional charge, provides patients with educational materials, exercise videos, the ability to share information with your provider, access care instructions, and communicate in real time with your Nurse Navigator -- all from the comfort of your home.  

You will be set up with your Force account when your surgery is scheduled.

The Ayer Neuroscience Institute offers you, your family and your caregivers any needed support through a wide range of patient- and family-oriented services.

Please ask us if we can help you or your family in any way.
