Dr. Sean M. Jones-Quaidoo is a fellowship trained orthopedic spine surgeon that specializes in degenerative spinal disorders. He hails from Louisville, Kentucky where he accepted a fellowship in spine surgery at the prestigious Norton Leatherman Institute, after completing a six-year residency/research program at the University of Virginia. Previous to residency, he received his medical degree at University of California, Los Angeles. The training received during fellowship was under the direction of both Orthopedic, and Neurosurgeons. This form of highly specialized training gave him the ability to treat patients with a unique and broad exposure to complex spine issues and techniques. With the knowledge of open techniques, minimally invasive techniques and a variety of nonsurgical care, a customized plan of care can be provided to his patients. He has published many peer-reviewed papers, as well as have made scholarly presentations in well-known orthopedic journals and societies, both in the United States and abroad. His practice philosophy is to listen to each patient and create a special action plan for everyone in the team. He creates great rapport with his orthopedic team to make the experience for the patient warm, friendly and highly efficient. He also stresses that communication is critical to quality patient care. Not only must it exist between physicians, but with his patients in a clear and efficient manner.
