Endovascular Fellowship Program

Spine Fellowship

Our spine fellowship, headed by John Pollina, MD, encompasses a broad spectrum of complex spine cases including minimally invasive spine and robotic techniques, as well as spinal deformity under Jeffrey Mullin, MD.

Dr. Pollina is one of the leading experts nationally in robotic spine and this combination, along with Dr. Mullin’s spinal deformity expertise, provides a well-balanced sub-specialization and robust clinical volume. This fellowship focuses on the latest advancements in both open and minimally invasive techniques and fellows will hopefully continue down the path of future advancements in spine surgery being developed right here in Buffalo.
