Spinal Surgeries

Procedures that change a patient's anatomy with the purpose of providing pain relief. Each of the EviCore programs for the utilization management (UM) of Spine Surgery and Joint Surgery of the shoulder, hip, and knee applies evidence-based clinical guidelines for the determination of medical necessity. Whether applied to minimally invasive spinal surgery or spinal fusion, knee arthroscopy, or total knee replacement, our clinical management and evidence-based guidelines are the core of our approach.  Source (SpineHealth)
