Clinical Outcomes for Spine

North Jersey Spine Group uses written protocols that emphasize a nonsurgical approach first, and surgery is held as the last resort. North Jersey Spine Group was one of the first spine centers in the State of New Jersey to track and publish a Clinical Outcome Report Card for health insurance companies that documents use of pills, patient satisfaction, and return to function.

New patients coming into North Jersey Spine Group completed an intake form that measured their pain level, severity of symptoms and functional status. Three months after their first visit, an outside nurse, not employed by North Jersey Spine Group, called a random sample of patients and interviewed them for functional status, symptoms and patient satisfaction. This is the most unbiased method for outcomes analysis. The clinical outcomes presented here are analyzed and validated by an outside firm, Prizm Development, Inc., that specializes in tracking spine outcomes nationally, and is the most experienced entity in the nation related to spine specialty centers.

Unlike most providers of back and neck pain, a spine center typically receives the most complex patients. One in four new patients coming to North Jersey Spine Group had previous back surgery elsewhere. More than half of all new patients had serious neurological symptoms like pain radiating beyond a knee or elbow, or numbness in a leg or arm — which typically implies a disc-related problem. As to patient satisfaction, 99% were “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied” with the time the doctor spent with them, and 97% would recommend the clinic to a friend.

Quality is a journey, however, rather than a destination, and we are committed to continually improving. This report documents our footprints on that journey. Below is North Jersey Spine Group’s Clinical Outcome Report Card for the year 2013.
