SpineZone, a healthtech startup using data to improve the treatment of skeletal conditions, has raised $12 million in a Series A funding round.
Founded in 2014, the San Diego-based company creates data-driven personalized treatment programs, and uses its in-person clinics to treat back and neck pain more effectively. The company currently has around a million patients under management, and has partnerships with major healthcare companies such as Sharp HealthCare, Scripps, Providence Health, and health insurance providers such as Anthem.
The firm’s latest funding round is led by Polaris Partners, an early backer of online blogging platform WordPress, alongside investments from Providence Ventures and Martin Ventures.
“During my 25-year career as a spinal surgeon, I noticed a dramatic increase in patients who were receiving surgery for back and neck pain, but who were not getting their desired long-term result,” said Kamshad Raiszadeh, SpineZone’s managing director and co-founder. “Many back and neck surgeries are not necessary. We wanted to develop a better model of patient-centric, value-based healthcare that truly puts the patient first.”
