Dr. Bryce A. Basques specializes in spinal disorders, as well as correcting failed surgeries, and is at the forefront of the latest advances in spine surgery. In addition, his research into spine surgery advancements has earned him a national reputation as an authority in the field.

Basques’ spine surgery experience includes robotic and minimally invasive procedures, outpatient surgery and non-fusion surgery.

“Every patient is unique, and my No. 1 goal is to make my patients better. That’s why I make it a point to customize each treatment plan to the patient’s individual needs, with a focus on nonoperative management when possible,” Basques said.

During his orthopedic surgery and spine surgery fellowships in Chicago and Philadelphia, Basques served as associate team physician for several professional sports teams, including the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia Phillies and Philadelphia 76ers.
