Austin Spine Surgeon Named Among the Top in the Country
Spine industry newsletter, Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review , released today their annual list of the top 100 spine surgeons in the country . Dr. Randall Dryer , a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon was the only Austin area surgeon to be named to the list.
According to the Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review website, the top spine surgeon list was prepared based upon “surveys, research and nominations.” In addition, all physicians considered for the honor “undergo a substantial review with other peers... Physicians do not pay and cannot pay to be selected as a best physician.”
Dr. Randall Dryer, Medical Director of the Central Texas Spine Institute , has been serving the Austin community for more than twenty years. He is well known for his innovative and minimally-invasive approaches to addressing stubborn back and neck pain. Dr. Dryer has pioneered spinal procedures which maintain the natural motion of the spine and allow patients to lead full active lifestyles. In addition, he holds several patents for spinal implant designs which have been incorporated into advanced devices that are frequently used to treat back and neck pain.
T hrough these advanced solutions, Dr. Dryer’s patients experience less disruption of healthy tissues and muscles which significantly reduces post-operative pain and allows for a faster recovery. In fact, many of Dr. Dryer’s patients undergoing spine surgery return home within a few hours after leaving the operating room.
In the brief biography included in the Becker’s Top 100 list, Dr. Dryer is recognized for his contributions to organized spine surgery through the various regional and national leadership positions he holds and his frequent presentations and lectures at national meetings. The authors also acknowledge his contribution to the research behind the expanding number of innovative procedures approved by the FDA for patients with back and neck pain.
“ There are many truly extraordinary surgeons on the list and it is quite an honor to be named among them," commented Dr. Dryer, upon learning of the distinction. “ It is wonderful to be recognized for doing something that I'm passionate about .”
