Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin SpineCare Program is a great example of how doing the right thing for patients can help employers keep their health care costs down. Designed to lessen the risk of costly, productivity-reducing chronic spine problems, the program encourages an early, safe return to routine activities — including work.

Most patients complete the program without needing surgery, and 97 percent return to their regular work duties or with minimal modifications at the end of treatment, within 6 months of their injury. The program also offers a competitive pricing model with defined treatment timelines. SpineCare’s quality is validated by recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
