Twin Cities Spine Center (TC Spine) is a medical practice of specialists focused solely on advancing the care and treatment of the spine, with a commitment to improving the lives and well-being of our patients.
Established by our pioneering founder, John H. Moe, MD, in 1947, our specialty practice brings the cumulative experience of over 70 years in leading orthopedics dedicated to one incredible and complex area of the body: the spine.
Today, our center continues our leadership through the adoption of cutting edge techniques including minimally invasive spine procedures and robotic assisted technologies.
