MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY EXPERT

Dr. Le brings a unique skill set to the Tampa Bay area with expertise in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery as well as Neurosurgery. He is a rare asset to the Tampa Bay community since he is not only a Neurosurgeon, but he is also fellowship-trained in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.

Dr. Le is one of only a select few in the world who have been trained by Dr. Kevin Foley, regarded by many as the father of modern-day Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.

Dr. Le completed his fellowship at the University of Tennessee-Memphis/Semmes-Murphey Neurologic & Spine Institute. While there, he also obtained additional fellowship training in scoliosis, deformity, and reconstructive spine surgery with Dr. Julius Fernandez.

PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY & INTERESTS

Dr. Le’s practice philosophy is straightforward: Treat the patient, and not the MRI. He has the clinical judgment to understand that a patient may not need surgery just because they have been diagnosed with a condition on an imaging study.

If surgery is the answer, however, his approach is focused to provide a targeted, minimally invasive surgical solution that reduces collateral damage to surrounding normal tissues. Spine surgery that avoids fusion and preserves motion such as cervical artificial disc replacement is also a particular interest of his.
