About Daniel J Hoh

Daniel J. Hoh, MD, is an associate professor of neurosurgery and holds the Dunspaugh-Dalton endowed professorship at the University of Florida. He was awarded a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Stanford University and a medical degree from Columbia University. Dr. 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 neurosurgery and orthopaedic spine fellowships with Edward Benzel, MD, and Robert McLain, MD, at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital, a nationally renowned comprehensive spine center. During his fellowship, Dr. 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.

Dr. Hoh provides care for 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 degeneration, trauma, deformity, tumors and rheumatologic and infectious disorders.

Dr. Hoh has served on the editorial board for scientific journals. He is currently serving on the editorial board of Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, The Spine Journal, and Neurospine and is on the executive board of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/CNS Joint Section of Disorders of Spine and Peripheral Nerves. Dr. Hoh is the past scientific program chair for the AANS/CNS Joint Section of Disorders of Spine and Peripheral Nerves. He is also a member of the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care and the North American Spine Society.

Dr. Hoh performs 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 and the thoracic and lumbar spine.
