D Magazine Medical Directory’s “Ask The Experts”: What should patients look for in a spine specialist?

There are many different specialists that treat the spine. It takes years beyond medical school, internship, and residency to master the treatment of spine-related disorders.

Patients should look for specialists that have completed postgraduate fellowships and are familiar with all aspects of spine care. Doctors that perform procedures must be specially trained and demonstrate competence in these procedures.

The more extensive the training, the better. Physicians that train other physicians, contribute to research, and design or develop surgical technologies are usually the best.

John Peloza, M.D., is medical director of the Center for Spine Care. Dr. Peloza has pioneered some of the most modern techniques currently on the market.

Michael Musacchio, Jr., M.D., is a neurosurgeon specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery.

Nathan Walters, M.D., is director of pain management and specializes in conservative treatments.
