A significant focus of his practice includes revision surgery for failed prior surgeries requiring various leading surgical techniques and technology.

Dr. White graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. degree in Microbiology and Immunology. Following his undergraduate studies he worked as a Senior Research Associate at the Donner Lab, Division of Biophysics, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory at UC Berkeley studying red blood cell membrane rheology under the direction of Professor Howard C.

From there, he completed his medical degree at The University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Then, he completed his surgical internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of California, Irvine. He received the senior resident award for “outstanding research”. Following residency, he completed a orthopedic spine surgery fellowship at Northwestern University in Chicago, Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center.

He then completed an additional fellowship in complex adult cervical and lumbar degenerative reconstructive surgery at Elmwood Medical Center, New Orleans under the direction of S. Henry LaRocca, MD, editor–in-chief of the Spine journal.

Over the years, Dr. White has maintained a strong interest in academic spine surgery. For over a decade he was a member of the AO Spine faculty, based in Davos, Switzerland, and lectured extensively worldwide on new spine surgery techniques and technology pioneered in Europe and Asia. He has published a book chapter on “Adolescent Pediatric Spine Disorders” and authored or co-authored various publications.
