When it comes to treating spinal injuries or deformities, experience and training are of the utmost importance. A passionate advocate for spine education, Dr. Samuel Bederman is a double-fellowship trained orthopedic spine surgeon who specializes in adult and pediatric scoliosis, robotic spine surgery, complex revision cervical, thoracic, and lumbar surgery, and minimally invasive spinal surgery. Respected among his peers, Dr. Bederman has taught as Assistant Professor at the University of California at San Francisco, Stanford University, as well as at the University of California at Irvine. He has trained dozens of surgeons in the techniques of Robotic Spine Surgery around the country.

Dr. Bederman notes that one of the goals in spinal surgery evolution is to reduce invasiveness, minimize trauma to the body, and speed up the healing process, enabling patients to return to their normal activities sooner. With that in mind, Dr. Bederman offers expertise in robotic surgery for Robotic surgery is a cutting edge technique which helps doctors perform spinal procedures with more precision, fl exibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques.

“Robotic surgery provides smaller incisions for faster healing, less exposure to radiation, improved accuracy of spinal instrumentation and improved safety,” he explains. “It’s growing in popularity due to its effectiveness with issues such as Scoliosis, Scheuermann’s Disease and spine tumor surgery.”

A leader in his field, Dr Bederman has spoken on spinal surgery at society meetings all around the world and authored numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.
