The spine division at the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery offers expert, personalized care to patients with a wide range of back and neck conditions, including treatment for spinal arthritis, disc degeneration, scoliosis, spinal deformities and tumors. We integrate traditional surgical methods with the latest minimally-invasive and robotic techniques. This allows us to provide full-spectrum care from routine cervical and lumbar surgery to complex spinal reconstruction and revision surgeries. Our goals are to take excellent care of patients, advance our field through research and train the next generation of leaders in spine surgery.

How to Schedule Your Appointment
If you are an existing patient and had an appointment that was postponed, our offices may contact you to reschedule. You can also call your doctor’s office or send a message via MyChart to discuss your healthcare needs so we can determine the appointment that is most appropriate. If you are a new patient, please call us at 443-997-2663 to schedule an in-person primary or specialty care visit.

Many new and existing Johns Hopkins patients have the option to have a video appointment (telemedicine) with their provider, depending on their healthcare need. If you don't have a device to use for a video visit, you and your provider may decide that a telephone call will meet your needs.

Existing patients must have a MyChart account to request an appointment online, or may otherwise need to call.
