It could be an ailment as common as lower back pain or a life-threatening brain tumor. The fact is, any condition involving the spine or brain is always cause for concern and must not be ignored. When seeking treatment, great relief can come just from knowing the best is close to home, at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare’s Iowa Spine and Brain Institute™.

We are the region’s most comprehensive center for the diagnosis and treatment of spine and brain conditions. These include lower back pain, chronic back pain, scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, spinal cord injuries, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, failed back syndrome and brain tumors. Our team of specialists will evaluate your situation and help you make an informed decision by clearly explaining the findings and recommending the most effective course of action. This could range from conservative approaches such as physical therapy and minimally-invasive pain therapy, to surgical intervention.

If surgery is necessary, take heart: You will be in exceptional hands with the Institute’s neurosurgeon, Dr. Gregory Brandenberg. Dr. Brandenberg has a depth of experience and compassion that instills tremendous confidence and comfort in everyone who seeks care. The standards set couldn’t be higher, and the passion they have for restoring your good health couldn’t be stronger. We would welcome a consultation with you to ensure quality care close to home!

Blue Distinction® Centers met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Blue Distinction® Centers+ also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Individual outcomes may vary. National criteria is displayed on www.bcbs.com. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area. To find out which services and providers (including hospital based physicians) are covered under your policy, or to learn about Local Blue Plan Criteria, contact your Local Blue Plan; and contact your provider before making an appointment to verify its current Network and Blue Distinction Centers status. Each hospital’s Cost Index is calculated separately, based on data from its Local Blue Plan. Hospitals in portions of CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in areas served by two Local Blue Plans, resulting in two Cost Index figures; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether all hospitals in these areas must meet Blue Distinction Centers+ national criteria for one or both Cost Index figures. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for damages, losses, or non-covered charges resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers. To find out more, contact your Local Blue Plan.
