  • Description

On the Spinal Surgery Service PGY 2 and PGY 4 residents work with a diverse group of expert faculty to learn the diagnosis and treatment of complex cervical and lumbar pathology. Rotating with multiple attendings allows the residents to learn different techniques to address common spinal pathology, including cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy, lumbar stenosis, and disk herniation. Residents assist in surgery and manage perioperative inpatients with graduated levels of responsibility appropriate to their PGY level. Complex cases are discussed with faculty and fellows on Friday mornings.
