Position Type

We are recruiting a Chief of Spine Neurosurgery as well as two additional staff spine neurosurgeons to join our team at the Aurora Neurosciences Innovation Institute (ANII).

These surgical positions are located at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but could have ambulatory opportunity in surrounding communities.  Patient base is established through referrals from within the system, but program also has increasing success at affecting the competitor footprint as well.  Our program is fully integrated with the orthopedic spine program, which maximizes resource allocation, consolidates call coverage, and improves post-surgical care for patients.  In addition, we have established a collaborative Aurora Back and Spine Program that works closely with Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians for non-operative spine as well as access and triage into the system.

Program Highlights:

• Tissue-preserving and robotic-assisted approaches to spine surgery

• BCBS Blue Distinction Center

• Aurora Back and Spine program doubled its patient base in its second year – has now expanded to 3 locations with a 4th added next year

• 1,800 spine surgeries done in 2015 at quaternary center (6,300 around entire system)

• Risk-adjusted quality performance superseding target in all categories for 6 quarters

• Performed more robotic spine surgery in 2015 than anywhere else in the world

• Aurora Health Care saw almost 14,000 emergency/urgent care visits related to neck/back pain last year alone

We offer the most advanced spine care available for back pain and neck problems, and are recognized as innovators in the region.  We were the first to use minimally invasive spinal fusion and artificial disc replacement to treat degenerative disc disease. In addition, we offer complete management for spine conditions—everything from common low back pain and disc problems to spinal injuries and tumors. Our treatments include minimally invasive surgery, spinal reconstruction and fusion procedures.

Aurora’s comprehensive back and spine programs make it easier for you to get back to the things that matter most. With a care coordinator to guide the process, your patients are connected to an integrated team of specialists all working together on personalized treatment plan, allowing surgeons to focus on the operative components of their practice.

"We invest in tomorrow's care because we truly want to change the way these conditions and diseases are cared for. This requires assembling the most gifted physicians, the most intellectually curious scientists and engineers, and the most advanced technology - and empowering them to deliver the best in class for patient care." - Amin Kassam, MD, VP Neurosciences, Aurora Health Care
