The multidisciplinary approach to patient treatment “allows surgeons, doctors and specialists to collaborate and seek each other's advice on patient care, vastly improving the care we can provide,” says Kee Kim, chief of spinal neurosurgery, associate professor of neurosurgery, and co-director of the UC Davis Health System Spine Center. Munish C. Gupta, associate professor of orthopaedic surgery with an expertise in spinal reconstruction, is the center's other co-director.

UC Davis Health System's Spine Center is the first in Northern California to house surgical and non-surgical specialists under the same roof, at the Cannery Business Park, 3301 C St., Sacramento. To refer a patient to the Spine Center, please call the Physician Referral Center at (800) 4-UCDAVIS.
