How EXPERIENCED is the surgeon with spinal deformity surgery?

  • Dr. Lenke has spent 23 years specializing in spinal deformity surgery, with the past 16 years dedicated to spinal deformity cases 100% of the time. This experience and focus is part of the reason that surgeons from around the world send Dr. Lenke patients they don’t feel able to treat themselves.
  • Two of the most powerful and challenging surgical techniques in spinal deformity surgery are PSOs (Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomies) and VCRs (Vertebral Column Resections). Dr. Lenke is currently recognized as the world’s leading authority on these techniques, having performed more of these procedures (approximately 450) than any other surgeon in the last 20 years.
