Dr. Dennis Meredith has joined Woodland Healthcare as an orthopedic surgeon, specializing in spine surgery.

He received his undergraduate education at Stanford University and his medical degree at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Meredith completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery/Cornell University Hospital in New York and completed a fellowship in spinal surgery at the Rothman Institute/Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

“I believe in a comprehensive approach to patient care,” he said. “Working with internists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, radiologists and pediatricians, all avenues for alternatives to surgery are explored before surgery is considered.

“If surgery is necessary, with the patients’ goals in mind, I will perform spine surgery using the most modern, safe and effective methods tailored for each individual patient.”

Dr. Meredith’s focus will be surgery of the cervical spine and lumbar spine utilizing motion-preserving techniques and minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. He will be seeing patients at Woodland Healthcare’s medical office at 632 W. Gibson Road in Woodland.
