Prof. Dean Chou

Dr. Dean Chou specializes in the treatment of complex spinal disorders. He treats such disorders as adult scoliosis, spinal deformities, and spinal tumors. He is an expert in minimally invasive applications to such complex spinal disorders, and he has had multiple peer-reviewed papers published describing these techniques. Moreover, he is an expert in traditional, open surgery for such complex procedures as multi-level fusions with osteotomies for adult scoliosis and adult deformity, en bloc spondylectomy and sacral resections for tumors. His research goal is to try to accomplish the same goals of open surgery with minimally invasive techniques, which hopefully can lead to less morbidity and better outcomes for patients.

After medical school at UCSF, Dr. Chou completed his residency at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and then undertook a fellowship in complex spinal surgery at The Barrow Neurological Institute. He is board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and has been elected by his peers for the past 10 consecutive years to “Best Doctors in America.”

Dr. Chou is on the Advisory Board of the journal SPINE, the Editorial Board of the Global Spine Journal, the Editorial Board of PLOS ONE, and he also is an Associate Editor for Neurosurgery. He has served on the Scientific Program Committee for the AANS/CNS Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves, as an abstract reviewer for such society meetings as the North American Spine Society (NASS) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) and International Meeting of Advanced Spine Techniques (IMAST), and as a faculty member for The American Association of Neurological Surgeons, The North American Spine Society, The Lumbar Spine Research Society, and the AANS/CNS Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves. He is a two-time recipient of the Harold Rosegay Teaching Award, and his publications have been featured five times as the cover article of the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine.
