Los Angeles-based orthopedic surgeon Dr. Hyun Bae has been added to an exclusive list of outstanding surgeons complied by trusted industry publication Super Doctors.
Super Doctors uses a comprehensive and rigorous process to provide potential patients a carefully chosen selection of highly qualified doctors. Every candidate is evaluated using a strict set of criteria, including professional achievement and recognition, including leadership positions, board certifications, honors and awards, and years of experience. Before a surgeon is published in the directory, all professional information is substantiated and a research team reviews disciplinary records to verify nominated doctors are in good standing.
Dr. Bae, Medical Director of The Spine Institute Center for Spinal Restoration, is a leader in minimally invasive surgery, non-fusion technologies, artificial disc replacement, and motion-preserving technology as well as being a visionary in stem cell repair of degenerative disc disease. In addition to being part of the exclusive Super Doctors list, which features just five percent of physicians in any given state or region, Dr. Bae has also been extensively published in top medical journals and featured on The Doctor’s. Most recently, Dr. Bae received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue work on a groundbreaking imaging technique that would help diagnose back and neck pain in patients and was named Safest Surgeon in Greater Los Angeles by Orthopedics This Week in 2015.
Spine surgery is often the last resort to address chronic back pain when conservative efforts to attain relief have failed. While spine surgery is relatively common, patients are encouraged to have a full understanding of possible outcomes (not all spine surgeries will eliminate pain completely, rather they are intended to provide patients a way to better manage pain) and seek a second or even third opinion from an experienced spine surgeon.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bae at The Spine Institute, call (310) 828-7757 and schedule an in-person consultation. Dr. Bae and his team of experienced physicians are redefining spine surgery and pioneering cutting-edge back treatments, helping patients just like you rediscover a pain-free life.
