"We aren’t the practice for surgeons who focus exclusively on operating.  We believe strongly that research and education add value to our care."

—Dr. Timothy Garvey


A Rich Legacy of Research

Twin Cities Spine Center's Research Department is an outgrowth of the pioneering work of John H. Moe. Dr. Moe is regarded as the founder of modern scoliosis research and treatment. For more information on Dr. Moe, please click here.

The TCSC physicians and Research Department staff focus on exploring and substantiating:

  • Operative and non-operative treatments
  • Diagnostic methods
  • Natural history of spine problems, specifically related to clinical, radiological and surgical outcomes

Research results appear in prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals, affecting spine care on a global level. To date, center surgeons have published more than 500 medical papers.
