The team at Verma Spine, led by board-certified orthopedic surgeon Kushagra Verma, MD, MS, FAAOS, provides exceptional care for back and neck problems in children, teens, and adults from the communities of Los Alamitos, Long Beach, and Orange County, California. They offer comprehensive orthopedic care, treating most spine problems with nonsurgical therapies.
When surgery is the best option, however, patients can depend on the exceptional skill and experience of Dr. Verma, who is board-certified in orthopedic spine surgery and fellowship-trained in complex spine surgery. Recognized for his expertise, Dr. Verma was selected in 2019 by The Leading Physicians to represent Los Alamitos as a Top Orthopaedic Surgeon of the Spine.
The team at Verma Spine places great value on spending time with each patient, fully explaining their diagnosis, reviewing imaging studies, and talking about their treatment options. They specialize in spinal anomalies such as scoliosis, kyphosis, flatback syndrome, and spondylolisthesis.
They also treat the full scope of spine conditions, from sciatica and disc herniation to the multiple causes of back and neck pain. No matter what condition patients face, everyone receives a customized treatment plan and concierge-level care at Verma Spine.
Most adult and pediatric spine surgeries, as well as revision spine surgeries, are performed using minimally invasive procedures. The team at Verma Spine stays up to date with advanced technologies, such as navigation technology using CT scans and computer-assisted spine surgery that allows safety and precision.
Patients can undergo surgery at three convenient locations: Los Alamitos Medical Center, Long Beach Memorial Hospital, and Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.
Patients needing spine surgery can count on receiving the personalized support they need before surgery and throughout their recovery. To schedule an appointment, call the office or use the online booking feature.
Twice yearly, Dr. Verma volunteers his time abroad to perform complex spine surgery on children with scoliosis. He has volunteered in Ghana, Columbia, and Mexico and has continued this work for the last 10 years. Visit the global Spine Outreach Website to learn more.
