UCLA Neurosurgery Spine Fellowship

The UCLA Neurosurgery Spine Fellowship is a CAST accredited, one-year fellowship in which the fellow will perform approximately 300 major spinal surgeries including minimally invasive approaches, spinal deformity, oncology, trauma, degenerative disease, congenital abnormalities, and other spinal disorders. The fellow will also receive ample experience evaluating and treating preoperative and postoperative patients in the outpatient setting, with an emphasis on surgical indications and patient outcomes. The fellow will be actively involved in teaching, including the weekly Joint Neurosurgery and Orthopaedic Spine Conference and resident education. There are a number of NIH funded basic science and clinical research activities available including spinal cord injury,  cervical myelopathy pathogenesis, and advanced spinal cord imaging.  There are also other ongoing projects related to surgical outcome studies. Support will be provided for travel to Neurosurgery and Spine related meetings during the fellowship year.
