Dr. Jeffrey Roh has been taking care of patients with spinal conditions since 2005. Dr. Roh has received numerous awards for his work in minimally invasive approaches to the spine 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.
My philosophy for every patient interaction begins with the fundamental premise of treating everyone as if they were my family member. I always start by carefully listening to their individual concerns. Each person brings unique and interesting problems that require a thoughtful, personalized solution. My primary goal is to help my patients get their normal lives back, and when we are able to reach that goal together, I feel tremendously fortunate to have had the opportunity, honor and distinct privilege of serving them. I consider myself one of the lucky few who can freely admit that I truly love my job. Surgery is only one of many treatment options. Many of my patients never need to have surgery - many times rehabilitation of the spine is all that is needed. I work closely with a team of local physiatrists, pain management specialists, and physical therapists who, like me, believe in conservative methods. If a spinal condition can be rehabilitated without surgery, that is what should be done. I inform my patients of all the treatment options they have for an injury, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each option. There is a lot of valuable patient information available today that can answer many questions a patient may have, or help to calm some concerns they may have. I believe that our staff and I may be your most valuable resource for any thoughts or concerns you have, which is why we are here.
