The primary goal of the spine surgery fellowship program is to provide the fellow with comprehensive exposure and the diagnosis to treatment of all aspects of spinal disorders. Surgical procedures include anterior, posterior and minimally invasive techniques. The fellows are involved in 450-500 cases a year and will have an opportunity to work side-by-side with all of our spine surgeons, both in and out of the operating room. The fellows will acquire the skills necessary to assess and manage patients who present with spine-related complaints, both operatively and non-operatively. They will also develop the surgical expertise needed to perform specialized surgery using a variety of techniques, implants and the use of navigational techniques. The fellow is given increasing responsibility throughout the year, based on their individual progression.
