Dr. Mundis treats all spine disorders and has focused his training to subspecialize in Adult and Pediatric Spine Deformity surgery as well as in cervical spine surgery.
Dr. Mundis has had a productive academic year, completing two book chapters on Early Onset Scoliosis, publishing an article on adult scoliosis, presenting his research in Vienna, Austria at the 16th annual IMAST meeting, and the upcoming SRS annual meeting in San Antonio. He has had 10 research projects accepted for presentation this year alone including topics of adult and pediatric scoliosis, and the use of visual evoked potentials in monitoring for blindness during long spine surgery.
