The team at NeoSpine has been dedicated to its patients for two decades. Providing services in the Seattle-Tacoma area for many years, they have now expanded to service patients closer to home, as they have added locations and services right here in Gig Harbor and Silverdale.
With the growing need for medical providers in these communities, the team at NeoSpine is dedicated to serving a large geographic area by focusing their growth into the Peninsula. “This is why we, NeoSpine, will have two dedicated providers in these locations,” affirms Kevin Hockenson, CEO for NeoSpine.
The NeoSpine group includes board-certified sub-specialty trained physicians who are all passionate about patient care. The kind, caring, multi-disciplinary team, which combines medical staff, nursing, advanced care providers, physician assistants, pain physicians, anesthesiologists and spine surgeons, is dedicated to providing great outcomes for each and every patient.
A comprehensive pain medicine and spine surgery practice, the team at NeoSpine consists of multiple pain and spine surgery doctors based out of several locations across the area including Burien, Gig Harbor, Kirkland, Puyallup and Silverdale—with Dr. Alex Mohit and Dr. Neil Batta, who will be primarily based out of Gig Harbor and Silverdale. NeoSpine partners with neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons to develop and manage outpatient spine surgery, interventional pain care and orthopedic spine facilities. In the evolving world of health care, neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons are constantly faced with the challenge of providing the most advanced, highest quality care for their patients.
“What makes NeoSpine unique is that we offer a comprehensive pain management and spine surgery service in the same location,” affirms Alex Mohit, MD. “We can provide care to a large variety of patients and help improve quality of life and function.” Dr. Mohit is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in complex spine surgery, who will perform services to include, but not limited to, surgical management of spinal cord injuries and disorders such as herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, stabilization, or arthroplasty.
Dr. Neil Batta is board-certified in pain medicine and provides a full array of pain management services, from medication management, fluoroscopic (X-ray) and ultrasound-guided procedures, peripheral nerve blocks and joint injections to nerve conduction studies/electromyography, Botox injections for migraines, neuromodulation and more.
“Pain medicine is at the forefront of facilitating dialogue between health-care professionals and their patients,” shares Dr. Batta. “Learning to get to know my patients and listen to their issues is what I enjoy the most to be able to best care for them using a multi-disciplinary approach. I enjoy educating patients regarding lifestyle changes including daily exercise and using up-to-date therapies such as spine injections, regenerative medicine or spinal cord stimulation to help improve quality of life.” Dr. Batta and Dr. Mohit are grateful to be able to provide a needed service to the Peninsula and the ability to help with patients to further connect with other health-care professionals in the area. Both are involved with the Pierce County Medical Society and Kitsap County Medical Society, as well as the Pierce County Medical Society Board as trustees to help connect further with local community members.
“Our providers and our incredible community of patients are the reason we are successful,” shares Hockenson. “We come with the knowledge, years of education and training, but our patients come with courage to combat their pain and allow us to be a part of that impressionable chapter of their lives. NeoSpine is a team of diversity, where we come together creating an incredible environment for world-class care.”
