Centro de la Columna Vertebral

The Centro de la Columna Vertebral (Spine Center) is the only private medical clinic specializing in spine diseases and conditions in Mexico and Latin America. Under the direction of Dr. Eloy Ovando Sanders, developed a non-surgical method for the treatment of herniated discs.

nuestra historia

Our history

Dr. Eloy Ovando Sanders performed his first consultations for spine problems and herniated discs in Rosarito, Baja California Norte.

April 1st,1997, in the city of Tijuana, B.C.N., Mexico, Dr. Eloy Ovando Sanders began treating herniated discs without involving surgeries. Later, in 2002, he legally set up the Centro de la Columna Vertebral.

Patient’s treatment at the Centro de la Columna Vertebral is comprehensive. Perfectly trained health professionals such as nurses, therapists and nutritionists establish the exact diagnosis of the condition in order to carry out the most appropriate therapeutic option for each case.

 
 

the centro de la Columna Vertebral in Mexico City

In November 2005, the first clinic of the Centro de la Columna Vertebral in Mexico City was opened in Villa Coyoacán.

Thanks to the success obtained and to the satisfaction of our patients who took advantage of our non-surgical Spine Treatment, the clinic moved to our facilities in Rio Mixcoac Avenue, in southern Mexico City.

Across Mexico

The growth expectations and the great demand for our specialized medical services to address spinal conditions, back pain and disc herniation, led us to open our first clinic in the interior of the Mexican Republic in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco in 2007.

In 2010 we opened our third clinic in the north of the metropolitan area, in Ciudad Satélite, Mexico State.

For the year 2013, in the month of July, we opened our fourth clinic in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, since it is an important and central city in the northern region of our country. With this clinic we could attend patients from the Northwest of the Republic and become a reliable, safe and effective alternative for the inhabitants of the southern state of Texas in the United States.

In the year 2016, we extended our presence in the center of the country with our first clinic in Puebla. It currently receives patients from all over the region, who no longer have to travel to Mexico City for treatment.

We look towards the future

2019 remains in the history of the Spine Center as a successful year as we opened our second clinic in the Bajio region. We arrived to Querétaro with the same goal of bringing health and wellness to our patients.

Quality and Certification

At the Centro de la Columna Vertebral we are convinced and committed to the safety of our patients. We are currently engaged in various processes to ensure the quality of our services and excellence in the skills of all our staff, thus seeking the safety of our patients.

Furthermore, we have the support and continuous advice of a company specializing in Quality and Safety in the clinical field, Grupo Mexicano de Hospitales, with whom we have worked hand in hand to comply and maintain the regulations, quality standards and safety applicable and in force.

We are convinced that only qualified personnel and compliance with applicable regulations and standards enable us to achieve excellence in the quality of the care services that we give to our patients and relatives.

The care that patients receive at the different Centros de la Columna Vertebral is comprehensive, since we have perfectly qualified medical, nursing, physical rehabilitation and nutrition personnel.

Moreover, our clinics have expert doctors in Traumatology and Orthopedics who will be able to establish a precise diagnosis to determine the causes of low back pain, disc herniation, and inflammation in the extremities or any other ailment related to a patient’s back. This will serve to carry out the most appropriate therapeutic option according to each case.

The clinics specialize in the non-surgical relief of painful problems of the spine, especially intervertebral disc herniation. Ninety-five percent of the patients seen in our clinics have had excellent results, and manage to avoid surgery. The entire procedure is performed with a high safety rate and virtually no side effects.

 
 

The Ovando Sanders Treatment

Our treatments are based on the application of Dr. Eloy Ovando Sanders' exclusive analgesic and anti-inflammatory formula through the intravenous route; applied to the painful area of the spine or where studies have shown the existence of damage to the intervertebral discs. We also provide physical therapy and nutritional control and adjustment
