Dr. Dan Riew is a world-renowned cervical spine surgeon, and is recognized as one of the leading clinical and academic figures in the global spine community. His practice is exclusively limited to the operative treatment of the cervical spine, the only such practice in the US and one of only a handful in the world. Few surgeons in the world perform more cervical spine operations than Dr. Riew, whose procedures range from minimally invasive microsurgical outpatient procedures, to the most complex revision and deformity corrections. Studies show that surgical volume and experience drive successful outcomes and lower complications rates. He has a particular interest in cervical artificial disc replacements and other motion-sparing procedures such as laminoplasties, as well as complex cervical deformities. As a global leader in the academic community, Dr. Riew has served as the President of the Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS), which is the most well-respected society for the treatment of the cervical spine.  In addition, he currently serves as Chairman of the International Board of AO Spine, the largest organization of spine surgeons, with over 6,000 members.
