Ali Bagheri, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in spine surgery. Dr. Bagheri provides care for conditions affecting the cervical (neck), thoracic (middle) and lumbar (lower) spine including disc herniations, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, spondylolisthesis and trauma. His areas of expertise include minimally invasive surgical procedures, disc replacement, decompression surgery, cervical and lumbar fusions, revision surgery and trauma surgery of the spine.


His treatment philosophy is simple: Treat every patient like a family member. Dr. Bagheri provides detailed explanations of each patient’s diagnosis and reasons for pain as well as personalized treatment recommendations. He emphasizes nonsurgical management of spinal conditions, recommending surgery only when other treatments are unsuccessful. He and his team are dedicated to providing care for patients to get them back to living their life to the fullest. 


Dr. Bagheri is a strong advocate of physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle, which are advantageous to preventing spinal problems and can also benefit post-operative recovery.


Outside of his practice, Dr. Bagheri enjoys spending time with family and friends. As a former athlete, he still participates in a variety of sporting activities and remains as physically active as possible.
