Becker’s Spine Review Recognizes Dr. Douglas Won
Minimally Invasive SpineCARE Founder Named to Prestigious List
In the list, Becker’s quotes Dr. Won as saying: “Today, the key to being a leader in spine doesn't just take knowing the art of medicine. One has to understand the state of health care reform in this country. Physicians typically react to changes forced upon us rather than being proactive to make the changes. Physicians are the infantry in the health care industry, and we need to be more engaged in shaping the reform.”
A premier health care publication based in Chicago, Becker's Spine Review focuses on news, business and legal issues affecting spine surgeons and their practices. It publishes a number of lists throughout the year to recognize outstanding facilities and individuals.
“Becker’s Spine Review is a highly-respected, well-known publication, and I’m honored to be included,” says Dr. Won.
With more than 15 years of experience in medicine and more than a decade specializing in back health, Dr. Won is skilled in helping people manage back pain. Approximately 95% of Dr. Won’s patients are treated non-surgically, but when surgery is necessary, Dr. Won employs the most non-invasive methods possible. He helped develop endoscopic laser spine surgery and was the first surgeon in Texas to perform it with a 3mm incision – the size of a grain of rice.
Dr. Won is one of the most highly trained spine specialists world-wide, having completed fellowship training in spine surgery at William Beaumont Hospital’s Spine Center, as well as fellowship training in cervical spine surgery, microscopic spine surgery and spinal deformity surgery at Washington University School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency through Washington University SOM/Barnes-Jewish Hospital, received his Doctor of Medicine from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, and holds undergraduate degrees from Northwestern University and Harvard University.
In addition, Dr. Won is actively involved in the community, serving as a mentor, a board member of Irving Schools Foundation and a clinical assistant professor at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He holds leadership positions with a number of professional organizations, including a diplomat of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, distinguished fellow of the American College of Surgeons, board member of the American Board of Surgery and co-founder of the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Treasury. Other memberships include the North American Spine Society, Texas Medical Association, Texas Orthopaedic Association and the International Association of Orthopedic Surgeons.
