Community news | Wednesday, September 2, 2020

[Fergus Falls, MN] Dr. Jared Broadway, Neurosurgeon at Northern Neurosurgery & Spine (NNS) in Fargo, ND and Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) announced today a new partnership that will bring a Spine Care and Surgery Center for local treatment of back, neck and SI joint pain to Fergus Falls beginning next week.

"We are very excited to begin this partnership to serve an ongoing need identified by patients in our communities," said LRH CEO, Kent Mattson. "Traveling out of town for spinal surgery is less than ideal and finding the right fit for a spine surgeon in a market our size has been a challenge. Dr. Broadway and his team offer a great fit, aligning perfectly with our person-centered philosophy of care and with a regular presence and partnership right here on our main campus in Fergus Falls," Mattson added.

Mattson said Dr. Broadway will begin seeing patients at the main clinic on West Vernon Avenue in Fergus Falls next Tuesday, September 8th and will continue to have regular clinic hours and a regular surgical schedule in the LRH operating rooms as well.

"LRH and NNS are very like-minded in our approach to caring for patients and contributing to the community. It's an honor to be able to expand my practice into the Fergus Falls area and provide much needed pain relief and spine care locally," said Dr. Broadway. "The last thing you want to do when you're suffering from back pain is get in the car and drive any further than you need to for medical care. I'm really excited to be able to see people in their own community and to collaborate with the great primary and specialty care providers here at LRH," he added.

The Spine Care and Surgery Center will feature non-surgical and minimally invasive spine surgery options utilizing the latest techniques and equipment including minimally invasive spinal decompression, lumbar fusion, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, cervical disc replacement, sacroiliac fusion, open and lateral lumbar fusion and more.
