Alexander P. Robertson, MD

Spine Surgeon

Alexander Robertson, MD, received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. At the conclusion of his orthopedic residency at Rhode Island Hospital, Robertson completed a spine fellowship at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia.

Robertson treats all disorders of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. These conditions include herniated disks, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, instability, deformity, tumor, trauma and infection. His special interests include biologic enhancement of bone fusion, minimally invasive spinal procedures and total disc replacement.

All patients who present with back or neck pain are thoroughly evaluated, given a diagnosis, and a treatment plan is initiated. Whether the patient can best be served by non-operative management or surgery, the goal is the same: restoration of function and a return to an active and healthy life.
