Dr. Perry specializes in all aspects of spine surgery, including adult degenerative conditions, congenital deformities, spine trauma, spine tumors and deformity correction, including anterior, lateral and posterior spinal approaches.

If surgery is necessary, Dr. Perry is also trained in the latest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques that reduce the length of the incision, the time in the hospital and the time needed for recovery. Many patients can have their surgery in the morning and be home later the same day to recover in their own home.
