Spine Surgery Program

Certified excellence in spine surgery

Three Seton hospitals have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for their disease-specific spine surgery programs: Seton Medical Center Austin, University Medical Center Brackenridge and Seton Medical Center Williamson. Working in partnership with Seton Brain & Spine Institute, they are the first hospitals in Central Texas to meet the organization’s standards for quality and safety – based on compliance with consensus-based national standards, the use of evidence-based clinical guidelines, and meeting performance measures specific to surgical treatment of degenerative spine disorders.

An elevated standard of care

The Joint Commission, considered the highest standard in evaluating disease-specific health care programs, is the country’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

“In achieving Joint Commission’s certification, these three Seton medical centers have demonstrated their commitment to the highest level of care for its patients with disease-specific spine conditions,” said Jean Range, Executive Director of the Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification. “Certification is a voluntary process and I commend Seton for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate its standard of care and instill confidence in the community it serves.”
