It’s Time to Get Back to Working, Playing and Living.

Jeffrey Roh, MD

Dr. Jeffrey S. Roh, MD is a board-certified, award-winning specialist in minimally invasive spine surgery. As a physician and surgeon with expertise in the spine, he specializes in treating adult and pediatric spinal disorders. He employs both non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical treatments to address the symptoms that can arise from abnormal spinal function.

Dr. Roh has received numerous awards for his work and patient communication skills. He has helped educate and train spine fellows and hundreds of other domestic and international spine surgeons interested in the rapidly growing field of minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Roh is licensed to practice medicine and surgery in the state of Washington and performs more minimally invasive spinal procedures than anyone in the state.

My philosophy for every patient interaction begins with the fundamental premise of treating everyone as if they were my family member. I always start by carefully listening to their individual concerns. Each person brings unique and interesting problems that require a thoughtful, personalized solution. The spine is both wonderfully complicated and fascinating at the same time. It is the literal backbone that lends structural stability, physiologic flexibility, and protection for the vital neurologic structures that allow us to move, breathe, live life, and function as human beings. My primary goal is to help my patients get their normal lives back, and when we are able to reach that goal together, I feel tremendously fortunate to have had the opportunity, honor and distinct privilege of serving them. I consider myself one of the lucky few who can freely admit that I truly love my job.
