Dr. Ryan P. DenHaese is a board certified neurosurgeon who specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery. He received his undergraduate degree from Niagara University before completing medical school at SUNY Buffalo and a Neurosurgery Fellowship at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Dr. DenHaese has an extensive background in degenerative spinal conditions, artificial disc replacement, spinal reconstruction, scoliosis, neuro-oncology, and trauma. In treating patients, his approach is to avoid surgery when possible but when required his emphasis is on minimally invasive spinal surgery and motion preservation.
