Tri-City Medical Center spine surgeon one of only 50 nationwide to receive honor.
Tri-City Medical Center (TCMC) is proud to announce that Dr. Neville Alleyne, chief of the orthopedics division at TCMC, has been appointed to the National Spine Health Foundation’s elite 50-member board. The Medical and Scientific Board is comprised of the nation’s top spine surgeons, who are all recognized leaders in the field. The NSHF’s mission is to improve spinal health care through education, research and patient advocacy and is the United States’ only nonprofit, patient-centered organization dedicated to helping patients overcome debilitating spinal conditions and improve their quality of life.
“Our board members represent the best and brightest that the spine health community has to offer,” said Dr. Rita Roy, Chief Executive Officer of the National Spine Health Foundation. “We’re proud of the excellence and vast experience of our Board.” The patient-centered non-profit is celebrating their 20th anniversary of helping patients overcome debilitating spinal conditions and take back their lives.
In addition to his role at TCMC, Dr. Alleyne is the President of the Orthopedic Specialist of North County, also known as OSNC, a comprehensive orthopedic clinic in Oceanside that is owned by Tri-City Healthcare District. Dr. Alleyne has performed himself, or as part of a team, more than 800 spine procedures using next generation robotics. He is trained on the Mazor X, and was the first surgeon west of the Rocky Mountains to perform lower back surgery using the advanced system in 2017.
“Dr. Alleyne is a pioneer in orthopedic spine surgery,” remarked Steve Dietlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of TCMC. “This appointment is yet another acknowledgement of the important role Dr. Alleyne plays in advancing high-quality orthopedic care in our region and around the country.”
“My practice philosophy is simple,” Dr. Alleyne said. “I treat my patients as I would treat my family. Each of my patients gets my undivided attention, and all of their questions are answered. Most of the time when they leave, they have an excellent understanding of the disease process and the treatment plan that will be outlined for them.”
