TPMG Unveils New Spine Center
Newport News, VA, October 12, 2020 – Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group provides the full spectrum of spine care with the new TPMG Comprehensive Spine Center (CSC), a dedicated spine center designed to improve the efficiency, speed, and quality of treatment for patients suffering from spine pain. With two locations in Williamsburg and Newport News, the team is able to provide access to patients from New Kent and West Point, Gloucester and Matthews all the way down to the Hampton Roads tunnel.
The CSC is a collaboration between orthopedic specialists, Drs. Shane McGowan, Jeffrey Moore, Lara Quinlan, and Michael Potter and pain management specialists, Drs. Christopher Dawson and Mark Newman. The partnership developed after recognizing the need in Hampton Roads to improve speed and quality of care for spine pain patients. Patients will be able to receive a full continuum of spine care from diagnosis, education, and treatment to pain management, physical therapy, and non-surgical and surgical interventions.
“With the prevalence of spinal disorders in the Hampton Roads community and the length of time it can take a patient to receive appropriate treatment we knew it was imperative to form the CSC,” said TPMG Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Shane McGowan, MD. “TPMG is the only group in the area with the resources and combined expertise to provide essential treatment for any spinal disorder.”
“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 TPMG Interventional Pain Treatment Specialist, Christopher A. Dawson, MD. “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.”
The goals of the TPMG Comprehensive Spine Center are to provide state-of-the-art treatment for all Hampton Roads spine pain patients, improve the efficiency and ease of referrals from doctors in the Tidewater region, and improve feedback to the referring physicians about the status of their spine pain patient. The CSC specialists have the convenience of on-site physical therapy locations in both Newport News and Williamsburg.
The Comprehensive Spine Center (CSC) provides care for the following conditions:
• Back Pain
• Neck Pain
• 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
The team works in close collaboration to develop a customized plan of care that suits the needs of each patient. Drs. Jeffrey Moore, Christopher Dawson, and Mark Newman are highly trained in non-surgical spinal procedures including epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, sacroiliac joint injections, and radiofrequency ablation. In addition, following an extensive career as a spine surgeon, Dr. Moore currently focuses on non-operative spine care which provides a unique perspective from a surgeons viewpoint. Dr. Shane McGowan will continue to focus on the surgical intervention of patients when absolutely required opting for minimally invasive techniques when appropriate and larger surgeries when necessary.
