Practice Overview

Ryan J. Hoel, MD, is a fellowship trained spine surgeon who specializes in nonoperative and operative management of all spinal conditions, with an emphasis on minimally invasive surgical techniques. He treats spinal disorders of both the neck and back, including disc herniations, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal cord compression, arthritis of the spine, and spinal deformities. He performs motion-preserving surgeries, such as disc replacements, and uses muscle-preserving surgical techniques.

His treatment philosophy is that if a condition can be treated successfully without surgery, nonoperative measures should absolutely be tried before considering an operation. For those patients who do not respond to nonsurgical modalities, surgery can be considered, but must be tailored to the patient’s specific problem and anatomy. His goal is to select the smallest operation that will lead to a successful outcome, and he partners with patients on determining the treatment plan, with the goal of relieving pain and returning to activity. Dr. Hoel utilizes minimally invasive surgical procedures to allow the patient to have the shortest possible recovery time while maximizing long term outcomes.
