Who We Are

World Class Comprehensive Spine Care
At Indiana Spine Group, we understand the challenges facing patients with spinal disorders.

We treat each patient as an individual with unique needs and use a team approach to enable timely, effective diagnoses and treatments. We believe in educating patients as much as possible about their condition and available treatment alternatives. Our staff is dedicated to providing this information and answering questions, so you can take an active part in your own care.

Patient Services

Spinal Diagnosis
In the past, physicians relied on MRIs or CT scans for a diagnosis, but these tests may not reveal everything. Our minimally invasive spine specialists use a variety of precise tests to accurately diagnose the location and causes of symptoms. This allows our medical team to focus on the most effective and efficient treatment plan. Because our nonsurgical and surgical physicians work as a team, they can ensure patients receive the treatment they need, where they need it, and in a timely manner.
Non-Surgical Treatments
Often times, minimally invasive spine treatments are effective and the treatment of choice. This may include:
  • Specialized injections (steroids/epidural injections or nerve blocks
  • Medications
  • Minimally invasive procedures, such as spinal cord stimulators or vertebroplasty
  • Complementary Therapies
Surgical Treatment
For certain patients and conditions, surgery may be the most effective treatment available. Our board certified spine surgeons specialize in neurosurgical spine surgery and orthopedic spine surgery. This is a unique combination in one practice. Indiana Spine Group surgeons are leaders in spine surgery, actively developing and refining the newest techniques for traditional and minimally invasive surgery and microsurgery.
Physical Therapy and Personal Training

One effective treatment for many spine complications is physical therapy. The goals of physical therapy are to restore a patient's strength, flexibility, and most importantly, function.

Our physical therapists evaluate patients and develop individualized treatment plans. Once a treatment plan is developed, the patient can receive treatment in our state-of-the-art physical therapy gym at our Carmel location. The physical therapy gym has equipment selected specifically for treating spinal conditions. We also offer educational and therapeutic exercise programs designed to help people with various spinal conditions live a more active lifestyle.

Be In Control (BIC) Specialty Fitness provides personal training at the Carmel location.

Patient Testimonials

"The entire staff was extremely kind and caring throughout my experience, in the pre-op room through recovery, And made me feel very well cared for. Dr. Sasso is the best! I always feel confident that I am in the best hands with Dr. Sasso. He is extremely skilled and knowledgeable, and listens to me and explains everything. My anesthesiologist, sat with me in my pre op room and explained everything and listened to all of my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Indiana Spine Group and North Meridian Surgery Center."

"I have not been a good friend to my body over the years. I have had surgery on my back numerous times, left arm, right knee, hernia and so on. I have never been in a hospital so friendly and so comforting than with my stay at the Indiana Spine Hospital.

I even received a "hand written", thank you/ get well card actually signed by all of the staff that cared for me. I am not an emotional person, but this got to me! I have never heard of such a thing and I have worked in healthcare for nearly four decades. Most of the time you hate to be in the hospital, but I did not want to leave. Every person that I came across was totally awesome!

From the lady that brought my meals, to the physical therapist and all of the nursing staff, I want to say thank you!!! You all are so great!!"

“We love all the staff we’ve been associated with. They make you feel like family. They are excellent and experienced!”

“Dr Reilly and the entire surgical team did a great job. Even while still having some pain from the surgery and dealing with temporary restrictions, I am already completely confident that I made a great choice with the procedure and the team.”

“Was out of options when a friend recommended Dr. Smucker. He spent time listening, explaining, giving several options, and then worked me in within a half hour for an injection that no one had ever suggested before. Dr. Arbuckle was also wonderful with his calm explanations and the precise injection. As I told Dr. Smucker, they gave me back my life---was barely able to walk for 10 months until that day. No stopping me now! The staff, nurses, nurse practitioner, and these doctors are amazing (I'm sure ALL the physicians are just as great!). SO thankful and blessed for their knowledge, compassion, and care. Thank you, Indiana Spine Group!”

“I wouldn't go anywhere else in the Midwest for my spinal issues. The staff is caring and the doctors are relentless in helping you with your problems. Where other practices said there was nothing else which could be done, the caring doctors of ISG helped give me back my life with greatly reduced pain. Special thanks to Dr. John Arbuckle, who understood and addressed my issues, and is the best spinal injection/pain management doctor in the region. I'm able to lead a reasonably normal life thanks to him and ISG!”

"My discovery of ISG was indeed life-changing. I had been told I was too old to have remedial surgery and that other methods would prove to be ineffective.
The comprehensive care, investigation and treatment has indeed been life changing. I am scheduled for my final surgery soon and based on my care for the last two and a half years, I am looking forward to it – something I never thought would come out of my mouth.
This is an incredible organization."
