About Vincent Traynelis, MD

Dr. Vincent Traynelis graduated from the West Virginia University School of Medicine in 1983 and completed a residency in Neurosurgery in 1989.

Dr. Traynelis is currently a Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of the Neurosurgery Spine Service at Rush University in Chicago and was formerly a Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. He has an active interest in spinal biomechanics and has performed numerous spinal biomechanical investigations working in conjunction with the College of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Iowa. He has authored or co-authored 96 publications in peer reviewed journals. He has co-edited three books and authored 60 book chapters.

Dr. Traynelis' active clinical practice is focused on spinal surgery and skull base surgery. He is particularly interested in the management of cervical spine disorders. He is the former Director of the Spinal Surgery Clinical Fellowship at the University of Iowa.

Dr. Traynelis is a member of a number of professional societies several of which he has served in a leadership role. He was the Chair of the Joint Section of Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves in 1999-2000, the President of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons in 2004-5 and the President of the Cervical Spine Research Society in 2005-6.
