As Chairman, Department of Surgery, Michael Weiss, D.O., FAOAO, leads the surgical component of Laser Spine Institute’s four state-of-the-art surgery centers and collaborates with other medical experts as the organization strives to lead the national spine care community to the next level of innovation and excellence. While continuing to perform surgery, he also oversees the proprietary fellowship training program for new surgeons and surgical practices.
Dr. Weiss began his esteemed career as an orthopedic surgeon in 1986, after receiving his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. He then went on to complete his internship and residency at Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital in Michigan, where he was appointed Chief Resident in 1991.
Dr. Weiss expanded his training into several sub-disciplines of orthopedics. Not only did he obtain additional surgical training at Wayne State University, but he also trained in hand surgery at Detroit Medical Center, total joint surgery at Port Huron Hospital, and pediatric orthopedics at Shriners Hospital in Tampa, Florida. Additionally, the surgeon underwent intensive training in adult reconstruction at Shadyside Hospital in Pittsburgh.
After years of multi-specialty training, Dr. Weiss developed a private practice in South Florida, where, for nearly two decades, he was able to utilize his expertise in the field of orthopedics and his commitment to patient care.
He then chose to join the team of surgical experts at Laser Spine Institute so that he could use his extensive knowledge of minimally invasive spine procedures to help patients from around the world. Dr. Weiss served as Chief Spine Surgeon at Laser Spine Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona from 2008-2010 before being named Chairman of Surgery in 2011. Dr. Weiss continues to provide patients with relief from neck and back pain caused by spinal arthritis, pinched nerves, bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatic nerve compression, and many other conditions. Dr. Weiss sees patients at both the Tampa, Fla. and Scottsdale, Ariz. facilities.
