WakeMed Raleigh has earned the Blue Distinction Center designation for Spine Surgery. Under Wake Ortho’s physician leadership, WakeMed has focused on improving care for spine surgery patients. Dr. Gurvinder Deol, spine specialist, states, "I am very pleased with the recognition of WakeMed as a Blue Distinction Center for spine surgery. The success of surgery hinges on having all members of the team committed to excellent outcomes, and operating in a hospital which has consistently demonstrated superior quality is very reassuring to me and my patients."
