Patrick C. Reid, MD

Neurological Surgery


Dr. Patrick Reid received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Wesleyan University with a double major in both Math and Molecular Biology. He subsequently received a Master’s degree in Physiology at Georgetown University before earning his medical degree from New Jersey Medical School at Rutgers University. He completed his neurosurgical residency at the University of Southern California, during which time he completed a dedicated year of enfolded spine fellowship training with orthopedic surgeons at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Upon graduation of his residency, he underwent further subspecialty training in spinal deformity and tumor surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.

Having completed two prestigious spine fellowships under both neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Reid brings perspectives and skills from experts and leaders of both departmental fields. His diverse training gives him a unique insight into not only the pathology that afflicts his patients but allows him to tailor his treatment to each individual patient using a wide range of available surgical and nonsurgical options. His expertise includes spinal tumors, adult spinal deformity, and both minimally invasive and complex spinal revision surgery.

Dr. Reid’s research interests include minimally invasive spine surgery, as well as outcomes research in adult scoliosis and sagittal imbalance.
