UAB Orthopaedics offers a skilled approach in caring for disorders of the spine. Our spine surgeons limit their practice to patients with spine issues of the neck or back. They have received advanced training in the treatment of spinal disorders and have decades of experience. They have devoted their careers to further study and research in that area and share their expertise by training other surgeons and by lecturing throughout the United States. As members of national medical societies including the Scoliosis Research Society, the North American Spine Society, AO Spine of North America, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery, our physicians stay on the cutting edge of research and education.
