EvergreenHealth Spine and Neurosurgery Welcomes Brian Dial, MD
Kirkland, Wash. – EvergreenHealth recently welcomed Brian Dial, MD, to its team of skilled providers in its Kirkland-based spine and neurosurgery practice within its Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute.
Dr. Dial is a fellowship-trained spine surgeon who specializes in complex spine surgery. He treats all spine-related conditions, including adolescent and adult scoliosis, cervical and lumbar degenerative spine disease and spinal tumors and infections. He also performs a variety of spinal-related procedures, including minimally invasive spine surgery, cervical disc replacement and lumbar spinal fusion.
“We are eager to have Dr. Dial join our team of skilled and knowledgeable physicians on our spine and neurosurgery team,” said Chris Bredeson, chief operating officer at EvergreenHealth. “His demonstrated experience with minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques and dedication to helping his patients achieve their desired results and improve their quality of life is a needed resource for our community.”
Dr. Dial’s philosophy is to provide his patients with a detailed understanding of what is causing their back or neck symptoms and offer the range of treatment options available to best alleviate symptoms. He also prides himself on partnering with his patients and providing patient-centered care to find the least invasive method possible to help patients achieve their health goals.
Dr. Dial received his bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering before attending medical school at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to medical school, he worked as a research and development engineer. According to Dr. Dial, his engineering foundation sharpened his problem-solving skills and prepared him to better understand new spine technology in order to provide the best patient care.
Following his orthopedic surgical training at Duke University, he attended the pediatric and adult spinal deformity fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. This fellowship provided mentorship from world-renowned spinal deformity surgeons and prepared him to address the most complex spinal pathologies.
Outside of patient care, Dr. Dial enjoys taking his dog for hikes, kayaking, playing beach volleyball and skiing. He and his wife, who is a pediatrician, also share a passion for global health and enjoy participating in medical mission work.
