Does Dr. Lenke have a good reputation with other surgeons?
Dr. Lenke’s reputation is outstanding! For example:
- More than 700 spine surgeons from the US and 60 other countries have visited Dr. Lenke to observe him in surgery and learn from him.
- In the last 20 years, Dr. Lenke has trained more than 70 clinical fellows (young surgeons who are dedicating their careers to spinal deformity surgery). In fact, there’s a very good chance that some of the other surgeons you might be considering were trained by Dr. Lenke!
- In 2010, Dr. Lenke became one of the youngest surgeons ever to be elected President of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS). The SRS is the oldest and most prestigious society for spine surgeons in the world.
