Profile

Rob Dickerman, D.O., Ph.D.

From the Doctor (Sponsored)

Dr. Dickerman is a board-certified and spine fellowship-trained neurosurgeon with extensive training on both conservative (nonsurgical) and surgical options for treating patients with acute spinal conditions. He has treated numerous elite professional athletes with conservative (nonsurgical) modalities with high success rates. When surgery is required, he is trained in minimally invasive spinal techniques, which minimize damage to surrounding tissues and speeds recovery for return to work or sports.

Dr. Dickerman also has a brain tumor fellowship from The National Institutes of Health (N.I.H.) and has trained under world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ed Oldfield. Dr. Dickerman has a particular interest in primary and metastatic brain tumors. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and travels to lecture at conferences to other surgeons and residents on advances in neurosurgery. His extensive research in minimally invasive spine surgery as well as brain tumor surgery continues today (www.pubmed.com).

Dr. Dickerman has patients visit from throughout the country. For patients from out-of-town and out-of-state, there are discounted rates at local hotels available through the office.

Dr. Dickerman brings an undeniable passion for excellence to his area of expertise. “We treat all of our patients with the same level of concern, care, and total support. We value the uniqueness of each patient, and we treat our patients as we would want to be treated.”
