  • Treatment of Spinal Degenerative, Trauma, Deformity, Tumor, Rheumatologic, and Infectious Disorders


DANIEL J. HOH, M.D., is an associate professor of neurosurgery at the University of Florida,  Dunsbpaugh-Dalton Professor in Brain & Spinal Surgery,  and a joint associate professor of neuroscience at the University of Florida. He was awarded a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Stanford University and a doctor of medicine degree from Columbia University. Hoh completed his internship and residency training in neurological surgery at the University of Southern California. During residency, he also completed a neurotrauma and spinal cord injury fellowship at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. After residency he completed both neurosurgery and orthopaedic spine fellowships with Edward Benzel, M.D., chairman of the department of neurosurgery, and Robert McLain, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon, at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital, a nationally renowned comprehensive spine center. During fellowship, Hoh gained specialty training in the treatment of complex spinal disorders, including spinal cord tumors, spinal deformity, spinal reconstruction, minimally invasive surgery and spinal cord injury.

Hoh provides care to patients with all neurosurgical conditions; however, his primary focus is minimally invasive and complex spine surgery. He specializes in applying innovative surgical techniques and novel technologies for the treatment of spinal degenerative, trauma, deformity, tumor, rheumatologic and infectious disorders.

His primary research interest is the investigation of novel treatment strategies for spinal cord injury, including spinal cord regeneration as well as neurologic rehabilitation. Hoh also has served as a member of the editorial board for noted scientific neurosurgical journals, as well as committees for national neurosurgical organizations. He is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurologic Surgeons, the AANS/CNS Joint Section of the Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves and the AANS/ CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care.

Hoh performs both minimally invasive and complex spine surgery (laminectomy, discectomy, spinal fusion, disc replacement, spinal instrumentation, spinal reconstruction, deformity correction, tumor removal and kyphoplasty) for the treatment of disorders affecting the cranio-cervical junction, cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.
