Podcast: Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Dr. Deol has expertise in the diagnosis and management of complex degenerative disorders of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. He also specializes in spinal trauma, spinal deformity surgery, and spinal tumors.

Dr. Deol completed his undergraduate education at North Carolina State University and subsequently attended medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After completing his Orthopedic Surgery residency at Penn State College of Medicine, he was accepted at the prestigious Rush University Medical Center spinal surgery fellowship. At Rush, he trained under the finest spinal surgeons in the world with a focus on complex reconstructive surgery and minimally invasive procedures. He had the good fortune of learning from Dr. Frank Phillips, one of the pioneers in minimally invasive spine surgery.

Dr. Deol has been published in major medical journals and presented at national and regional medical conferences, in addition to authoring chapters on spinal surgery. He frequently trains surgeons who observe his newly advanced surgical techniques in the operating room, and he teaches surgeons at conferences worldwide. He was recently invited to speak in Amsterdam and the United Kingdom to teach the new minimally invasive technique he helped develop.

Dr. Deol is happy to call Raleigh home, where he lives with his wife and five children. He takes pride in his ability to understand and relate to his patients and goes to great lengths to inform patients in a way that is clear and informative. The trust and confidence patients place in him, as well as his excellent outcomes, have made him popular among patients in the Triangle.
