Spine Care Patient Stories

At Henry Ford, we don’t just treat illness or disease. We treat the person. Our back and spine care specialists work together with our patients to come up with a personalized treatment plan to help them live their best life.

Every patient’s story is unique. We are grateful for those who allow us to share their stories.
