Biography

Jeffrey S. Roh, MD, is a board-certified, award-winning specialist in minimally invasive spine surgery. As a physician and surgeon with expertise in the spine, he specializes in treating adult and pediatric spinal disorders. He employs both non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical treatments to address the symptoms that can arise from abnormal spinal function. He is trained in computer-assisted spinal navigation surgery.

His philosophy for every patient interaction begins with the fundamental premise of treating everyone as if they were a member of his own family. He always starts by carefully listening to their individual concerns, because each person has unique and interesting problems that require a thoughtful, personalized solution.

Dr. Roh understands that the spine is both wonderfully complicated and fascinating at the same time. It is the literal backbone that lends structural stability, physiologic flexibility, and protection for the vital neurologic structures that allow us to move, breathe, live life, and function as human beings. His primary goal is to help his patients get their normal lives back, and when he and his patients are able to reach that goal together, he feels tremendously fortunate to have had the opportunity, honor, and distinct privilege of serving them. He considers himself one of the lucky few who can freely admit that he truly loves his job.

He has received numerous awards for his work and patient communication skills. He has helped educate and train spine fellows and hundreds of other domestic and international spine surgeons interested in the rapidly growing field of minimally invasive spine surgery. He performs more minimally invasive spinal procedures than anyone in the state.
