Welcome To Woodbury Spine 

Woodbury Spine is a practice dedicated to the prompt diagnosis and effective treatment of all spinal conditions. Located in Woodbury, New Jersey, and serving the surrounding locations including Cherry Hill, Mullica Hill, and nearby counties, orthopaedic spine specialist Evan O'Brien, MD, and physician assistant Chris Hennessey, PA, offer superior, patient-centered care for adults affected by common and complex spinal problems like back pain, neck pain, sciatica, vertebral compression fractures, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, radiculopathy, scoliosis, and osteoarthritis.

At Woodbury Spine, the team provides all aspects of spine care, from diagnosis to minimally invasive and complex treatments. Conservative management options such as medication and physical therapy can help many patients, while treatments like epidural steroid injections and facet joint injections are effective for more persistent cases. Advanced options, including radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation, and kyphoplasty, are also available at Woodbury Spine.

Dr. O'Brien and his team perform minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) and other spine surgery techniques for the most severe back and neck conditions, including artificial disc replacement and small incision lumbar fusion. For accurate deformity correction, Dr. O’Brien uses patient-specific custom rods by Medicrea®, a division of Medtronic Spine. These custom rods allow a precise correction of the patient’s spinal deformity. For prompt, expert attention and compassionate care when you have back or neck pain, call Woodbury Spine for an appointment today.
