North American Spine will add over 4,000 square feet of workspace to their Dallas headquarters in order to keep-up with the company’s accelerated growth and future plans for expansion. According to a press release by MarketWatch on July 16th, the extra square footage will provide additional space for administrative supports, including patient care coordinators, finance advisors and computer programmers to enhance patient care.
A 6 year old company, North American Spine has already undergone two expansions; a testament to the company’s ultimate goal of providing back pain relief for as many patients as possible. Board certified physicians at North American Spine use a minimally invasive surgical procedure called the AccuraScope which utilizes a pencil-tip sized laser beam to target local tissues and promote healing for chronic back and neck pain. The technique is designed to address pain related to the soft tissues of the back and neck, and is not used for bone related pain. The procedure is said to last 45 minutes to an hour, and is purported to have an 82% success rate.
In addition to AccuraScope typically being an out-patient surgery where patients can leave the clinic the day of the procedure, the company maintains that most patients are able to return to work within one week of having the surgery. And for those interested in reducing medical costs, North American Spine assures patients and insurance companies that the average patient saves more than $23,000 over 5 years in medical office visits and pharmaceutical pain management.
According to North American Spine VP Chance McElhaney, “Patient care is always our top priority, and in order to do that, we need to continue to add staff which has led to this latest expansion”. The completed expansion took 2 months to finish at their current office space located on 10740 N. Central Expressway, Suite 275 in Dallas, TX.
