The doctors in the Stanford Medicine Spine Center have the experience needed to effectively treat flat back/sagittal imbalance syndrome, also known as sagittal imbalance.
We help relieve symptoms, which most commonly include pitching forward of the upper body and head. We also provide relief for symptoms such as back pain and leg pain. Our team always emphasizes the least invasive treatment approaches possible but also excels at the most complex surgical procedures, when needed.
Stanford Medicine Spine Center patients with flat back/sagittal imbalance also may have opportunities to participate in research studies of new treatment approaches not yet available anywhere else.
