About Our Practice

Do you have a spine problem that might require surgery? Which spine specialist will you select to treat your condition? The spine is one of the body’s most complex areas and must be treated with the utmost expertise. Few doctors become spine surgeons, and even fewer rise to the top of this challenging field. Dr. Ivan Cheng is one of the elite group of surgeons recognized as a leader in spine surgery. He is trained in all aspects of spine care with special interests in the cervical spine and spinal deformities. If you have a neck problem associated with arm symptoms or a deformity of the spine such as scoliosis, you have the opportunity for rapid consultation with an expert in the field.

Conditions treated include:
Ankylosing spondylitis
Cervical radiculopathy/myelopathy
Flat back/fixed saggital imbalance
Herniated disc
Low back pain
Neck pain
Spinal stenosis
Spinal fractures

In addition to the latest techniques in spinal reconstruction, Dr. Cheng is also trained in minimally-invasive surgery and motion-preserving surgery.

Dr. Cheng and his team understand that the experience as a patient with a spinal disorder can be a difficult and sometimes confusing one. You can find comfort in the knowledge that Dr. Cheng offers the highest level of patient care. In his approach, he finds reasonable and effective treatment pathways for the full range of spinal conditions in as minimally invasive a fashion as possible.

After obtaining his degree at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Cheng completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at U.C. Davis and his spine surgery fellowship with the world-renowned spine surgery group at Washington University in St. Louis. Board-certified in Orthopaedic Surgery, Dr. Cheng has received many awards including the Timothy Bray Trauma Award from U.C. Davis, the Saul Halpern Orthopaedic Teacher of the Year Award from Stanford, the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine Prize in Clinical Research, and Outstanding Paper Awards from the North American Spine Society.
