About Us

At Spine Care of Oklahoma our specialists, Dr. Edward Shadid and Dr. Gentian Meta, are dedicated to the conservative treatment of spine and neck problems. Treatment and care is tailored to the unique needs of each individual.

Spine Care of Oklahoma offers only those traditional and cutting edge treatment options that have proven to be effective by the most highly regarded peer reviewed medical literature. This may include conservative treatments, physical rehabilitation, interventional procedures, and minimally invasive as well as complex surgery.

Every patient will undergo an initial consultation with Dr. Shadid or Dr. Meta. During this initial visit, a history and physical exam will be performed and x-rays, MRI’s and other studies reviewed. The diagnosis or list of possible diagnoses will be reviewed with the patient. Further studies may be ordered and/or treatments may be recommended based on this initial evaluation.

We focus on providing the most technologically advanced medical, surgical and interventional pain treatments of the spine delivering outstanding service to treat each individual with the utmost care and respect.
