The Spine division is comprised of seven talented leaders covering all areas of spine surgical treatment with a team of pain management and rehabilitation specialists who provide non-operative spine care. Spinal disorder management includes non-surgical and surgical workups as well as preoperative evaluation and appropriate patient selection. Surgical training includes cutting-edge minimally invasive and open surgeries in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, from the anterior, lateral, and posterior approaches. Degenerative conditions as well as tumors, fractures, and adult deformity are part of the experience. The fellow will actively prepare for and participate in monthly spine conferences/journal clubs, supplemented by quarterly Interdisciplinary Rounds. Also, annually, a Visiting Professor will be invited for a Grand Rounds lecture, discussion, and possible cadaveric demonstration. The fellow will benefit from access to a biomechanical research laboratory, motion analysis laboratory, and a clinical research infrastructure with a fully staffed team of regulatory, contract, grant, and research coordinators.
