Life-Changing Care for Those Who Need it Most

Our mission is to provide life-changing care to those who may otherwise be constrained to living with chronic pain.

Spine Care International takes a multifaceted approach to care that is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of each community we serve. Depending on the mission, we may:


Perform surgeries free of charge for those who cannot otherwise afford it


Help hospitals secure an affordable supply of medical devices and supplies.


Provide international neurosurgeons with medical equipment that is commonplace in the US


Provide international neurosurgeons the opportunity to receive advanced training

Spine Care International has been honored to serve underprivileged communities all over the world.

For our Cambodia Mission in February 2014, we took two of Spine Care International’s surgical teams on a medical service trip to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Working closely with Jeremiah’s Hope Christian Medical Center, the team screened twenty patients and identified ten surgical candidates. These patients received diagnostic testing and surgery-free of charge, thanks to the fundraising efforts in October 2013. During the one week service, Spine Care International preformed 10 complex spinal surgeries.

It is our mission to continue searching for those in less fortunate areas that don’t have access to spinal procedures. We believe it is our duty to provide education to healthcare professionals so they can care for spinal patients after their surgeries. We strive to provide the best possible care for those people who need it most. Our future plans for Haiti are being carefully planned out and we will give an update on our progress as we move forward. We thank you for your continued support with our medical missions.

Next Mission: Belize 2020

We'll be heading back to Santa Elena, Belize — but we need your help.

The facility we work out of, La Loma Luz Adventist Hospital, is in desperate of a C-Arm Digital X-Ray Machine. Without it, we can't perform any of the surgeries on our waitlist. Unfortunately, these machines are very expensive — so we'd like to help them buy one.
