Additionally, he is the Director of the Spine Surgery Fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Dr. Maiman earned his Medical Degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin and his Doctorate of Philosophy from Marquette University in Biomedical Engineering. His PhD dissertation was the Biomechanics of spinal injuries produced by vertical compression. Dr. Maiman's Surgical Internship was at the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals as was his Residency in Neurological Surgery. He did a Fellowship in Spinal Cord Injury at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Milwaukee.

Dr. Maiman is an active member of many professional organizations and serves on their committees. He is a member of the following national professional organizations: The American Association of Neurological Surgeons, AANS/CNS Joint Section on Spinal Disorders, AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care, American Medical Association, Cervical Spine Research society, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the North American Spine Society.
