Those seeking treatment for spinal ailments in Williamsburg won’t have to travel far anymore. 

Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group recently announced a new Comprehensive Spine Center at their New Town location off Discovery Park Boulevard.

The spine center is a collaboration among orthopedic specialists, Drs. Shane McGowan, Jeffrey Moore, Lara Quinlan, and Michael Potter and pain management specialists, Drs. Christopher Dawson and Mark Newman, according to a news release from TPMG

“If you can coordinate care in one area across multiple specialties, then it increases the well-being of the patients,” McGowan in a phone interview Tuesday.

McGowan added the specialists at the CSC are all fellowship trained. 

According to a news release from TPMG, the goal of the CSC is to provide the best care for spine pain patients by improving the efficiency and ease of referrals and feedback on patient status.

The CSC specialists also have access to on-site physical therapy locations in both Newport News and Williamsburg.

“I provide an alternative to opioids — pain reducing procedures that take minutes to perform in my office and require no downtime and no restrictions afterwards,” said Dr. Christopher A. Dawson, TPMG interventional pain treatment specialist, in the news release.

Care is available for the following conditions at the CSC: 

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Disc bulges
  • Disc herniations
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Back/neck arthritis (facet arthritis)
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Scoliosis (both adult and pediatric)
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Spinal tumors
  • Spinal Deformity
  • Vertebral compression fracture

“Our spine specialists at the TPMG CSC work together to enhance the function of the spine pain patient, decrease suffering and improve quality of life — all in a timely fashion,” Dawson said in the news release.

The spine center is located in Williamsburg at 5424 Discovery Park Blvd., Building B, Suite 105. They are currently booking appointments for evaluation. To learn more about what the spine center offers, visit their webpage here or call the office at 757-327-0657.
