About J. Patrick Johnson, MD

J. Patrick Johnson, MD is Director of the Cedars-Sinai Institute for Spinal Disorders. Dr. Johnson is also Director of the Neurosurgical and Orthopedic Spine Fellowship at Cedars-Sinai.

Dr. Johnson's current research focuses on the development of computerized image guided stereotaxic technology, minimally invasive and endoscopic spinal surgery, the use of bone morphogenetic protein in spinal fusion, outpatient lumbar microdiscectomy, endoscopic treatment of hyperhidrosis outcomes and a prospective analysis of vertebral body replacement.

Board certified in neurosurgery, Dr. Johnson has published articles in numerous peer-reviewed journals, including Spine, Neurosurgical Focus, Techniques in Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery, Journal of Neurosurgery, Contemporary Neurosurgery and Journal of Spinal Disorders. He also serves on the editorial review boards of the World Journal of Surgery, Neurosurgical Focus and The Spine Journal.

Dr. Johnson is Director of the California Association of Neurosurgeons, and he is a member of several professional organizations, including the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, American Association of Neurological Surgeons, American College of Surgeons, North American Spine Society, American Medical Association, Los Angeles County Medical Association, North American Skull Base Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Association of Spine Physicians.

Dr. Johnson received his bachelor's degree from The Citadel and his medical degree and master's degree in anatomy and neurophysiology from Oregon Health Sciences University. He completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at UCLA. Dr. Johnson completed a neurology/neurosurgery fellowship at the National Hospital for Nervous Disease in London and a spinal surgery fellowship at the University of Tennessee.
