Specialty: Spine Surgery

Honored in D Magazine's Best Doctors in Dallas for the ninth year, John Peloza, M.D., has continually garnered national recognition from peers and patients alike. Dr. Peloza has been selected to Best Doctors in America (only four percent of the nation's doctors), the Consumer's Research Council of America's Top Surgeon in America, Super Doctors®, and most recently one of the 50 Best Spine Specialists in America.

A "one-size-fits-all" approach is not what Dr. Peloza offers patients. Instead, he provides several minimally invasive options that are dependent on a precise diagnosis. As an advocate for minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Peloza says true minimally invasive surgery offers patients a more rapid recovery due to tiny incisions, minimal blood loss, and no disruption to neurologic, vascular, or normal tissues. "These techniques have a steep learning curve and require extensive training, skills updates, and constant diligence" he says.

"We conduct research on all of our techniques, and our patient outcomes data is impressive," Dr. Peloza says. "Utilizing this clinical data, we are able to suggest specialized procedures that predictably provide relief for each patient." The clinical data collected at Center for Spine Care is also published in peer-reviewed publications and included in national and international scientific databases to aid in the advancement of evidence-based treatment.

Evidence-based medicine and developing true minimally invasive spine technologies are what have contributed to Dr. Peloza's reputation as one of the most innovative pioneers in the spine community. He is an inventor and patent holder on several medical technologies and has helped design instruments currently being used on patients, such as the Serengeti® Minimally Invasive Retractor System and the Ravine® Lateral Access System. Dr. Peloza is currently working with the next generation of minimally invasive platforms including endoscopic surgery intra-operative 3-D imaging, laser applications, motion preservation, and fusion technologies.

Honored in D Magazine as a Best Doctor in Dallas for the eighth year, John Peloza, M.D., has garnered continuous national recognition as one of the 50 Best Spine Specialists in America, the Best Doctors in America, and the Consumer's Research Council of America Best Doctors, to name a few.

Conducting clinical research, designing modern medical technologies, and being a skillful pioneer of Minimal Access Spinal Technology (MAST) is what keeps Dr. Peloza earning the accolades and respect as an innovative spine specialist. "In my practice, our clinical research and patient outcomes data is impressive," Dr. Peloza says. "We continue to do research on am modern techniques, publish our data in peer-reviewed publications, and are asked to include om clinical data in national and international scientific databases. We can now suggest procedures that predictably provide relief for patients."

True MAST involves micro-endoscopic surgical techniques allowing surgeons to treat a wide range of spine conditions through tiny incisions and the use of small endoscopes. "We keep advancing minimally invasive procedures to the point where we are accomplishing tremendous outcomes from the tiniest of portals, which is a benefit to the patient in terms of a more rapid recovery," Dr. Peloza says. "Our studies have demonstrated the superior benefit of minimally invasive decompression and fusion techniques when compared to open surgical techniques."

As one of the first surgeons in the country to use disc replacement technologies, Dr. Peloza is studying and designing many other motion-preservation technologies for the spine. One of the patented technologies that Dr. Peloza helped design, the Serengeti Minimally Invasive Retractor System, recently received the 2010 Medical Design Excellence Award for its design and engineering features, user-related functions that improve health care delivery, and features that provide enhanced benefits to the patient.

Dr. Peloza is opening the Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery, an ambulatory surgery center, in far North Dallas at the Dallas North Tollway and Frankford Road. A completion date is set for May 2011.
