Majority-owned physician platform expands footprint
Spire Orthopedic Partners (Spire), a growing management services organization serving best-in-class orthopedic and spine surgeons, announced today a partnership with Connecticut Neck & Back Specialists (CTNB), a leading surgical practice dedicated to comprehensive spinal disorder management located in Danbury, Conn.
“We are honored to partner with the renowned physicians and team at Connecticut Neck & Back Specialists,” said Tim Corvino, M.D., CEO of Spire. “We look forward to building a strong partnership that further positions this practice for long-term success in an evolving healthcare landscape and gives physicians an opportunity to collaborate with like-minded peers in their continual pursuit of providing the very best patient care possible.”
Founded in 2005, CTNB is a leading provider of comprehensive, evidence-based medical and surgical management of spinal disorders. The practice is staffed by board-certified, fellowship-trained spine surgeons and well-informed, professional team members that offer the latest in high-quality operative and non-operative treatments. In addition, CTNB is an affiliate of The Spine Center at Danbury Hospital.
“We have thrived for nearly 20 years because our high-caliber physicians and talented support staff provide our patients with an exceptional, concierge-like care experience that results in excellent clinical outcomes,” said David Kramer, M.D., a partner and orthopedic surgeon at CTNB. “By partnering with Spire, we can build on our strong track record by ensuring patients and their local physician-led care teams remain at the center of all care decisions.”
Spire’s partnership with CTNB – the third this year – reflects the company’s growth and increasing success in offering leading orthopedic and spine surgeons a majority physician-owned platform for growth, collaboration and clinical innovation.
“This partnership is the ideal opportunity for our practice to continue our success and tap into new resources,” said David Bomback, M.D., a partner and orthopedic surgeon at CTNB. “We hold high standards of care, prioritize patient communication and encourage a culture of physician collegiality. Our team is eager to dive into exploring our future growth opportunities, together.”
Through this partnership, Spire will now be able to expand its reach into Danbury, Conn., while CTNB will gain new clinical and growth opportunities from the Spire infrastructure and capital.
Spire launched in 2019 with an initial founding practice, Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists (ONS) of Greenwich, Conn., and has since partnered with two additional practices, Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset and Orthopedic Associates of Middletown (OAM). The company continues to seek new team members and physician partners across the country.
