About Us

The USC Spine Center is a multidisciplinary, hospital-based spine center that is dedicated to the management of all types of spinal disorders. It serves as a one-stop location for the evaluation, diagnostic testing and treatment of all disorders affecting the spine. The Center combines the knowledge and expertise of more than 30 top-ranked physicians and surgeons in 13 different specialties. The multidisciplinary team at Keck USC Hospital, which works with USC Spine Center, includes specialists from orthopaedic surgery, neurology, rheumatology, pain management, interventional radiology, radiology, oncology, vascular surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery, internal medicine, physical therapy and geriatrics. All of the specialists are full-time faculty members of the prestigious Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, and most are fellowship-trained physicians and leaders in their respective fields.

Dr. Mark J. Spoonamore evaluates and treats patients at the USC Spine Center. All patients are initially evaluated by Dr. Spoonamore, and then referred for additional testing, consultation or treatment as required and indicated. Generally, additional tests and/or initial treatments can be carried out on the same day as the initial consultation visit, allowing patients to begin recovery and start improving function faster.
