Centura Spine Care

June 1, 2018


"We have a conservative approach to our care delivery, trying to utilize non-surgical treatment options first and working through those evidence-based practices and alternatives until surgery is the last resort."


An estimated 13,000 spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. every year, most commonly from vehicle crashes, falls, sports and work-related accidents. Among people aged 55 and older, falls are the most common cause – and can have the most severe, long-lasting effects on a person’s health and quality of life. Spinal cord injuries can happen to anyone, leaving the injured people, their family and friends, to cope with the aftermath, which is often stressful and complicated. 


Back and neck pain, spine conditions or injuries can be life-crippling and altering – treating them shouldn’t be complicated or inconvenient. The experts at Centura Spine Care can help get you back to where you should be – enjoying life as pain-free as possible, in a convenient all-encompassing location close to home. Whatever back or neck pain you’re suffering, or the severity of your spine condition or injury, Centura Spine Care has a full range of treatment options to offer a path to healing and relief. 


At Centura Spine Care, pain management and spine surgery expertise come together under the leadership of Dr. Sergiu Botolin, orthopedic surgeon, and Dr. William Lippert, pain management expert and anesthesiologist. Together, they combine decades of knowledge and experience with physical therapists, nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, psychologists and a personal nurse navigator to evaluate each patient’s condition and recommend a comprehensive and conservative treatment program designed to get you back on your feet. 


Centura Spine Care offers a one-stop shop of expertise and compassion


“We have a conservative approach to our care delivery, trying to utilize non-surgical treatment options first and working through those evidence-based practices and alternatives until surgery is the last resort,” explained Lippert, whose specialties include comprehensive pain care management with a focus on spine pain of the back and neck. He has been a leader in innovative pain therapy for over 30 years in Colorado Springs, pioneering advanced pain therapy utilizing laser guidance, sophisticated imaging and neuromodulation. 


At Centura Spine Care, each patient works with a personal nurse navigator who coordinates care and acts as a liaison with the medical team, making sure every need is met on the path to healing and pain relief. 


“Our goal is to work with patients as a team to reduce pain, increase motion and improve quality of life; there is no need to go anywhere else for treatment, we can do everything here at Centura Spine Care,” said Botolin, whose specialties include degenerative spine conditions, minimally-invasive spine surgery, adult and pediatric deformity and complex spinal reconstructive surgery.
