Dr. Andrew Chung is one of few double fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons in Arizona. He grew up in Glastonbury, Connecticut, and ultimately made his way out West and returned to Arizona. Dr. Chung specializes in advanced micro-invasive spine surgical techniques, non-fusion/motion preservation techniques, and outpatient spine surgery for the treatment of adult and pediatric spine conditions from the neck all the way down to the lower back.Dr. Chung completed his training for medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and did his orthopedic surgery residency at the Mayo Clinic here in Arizona. He then went on to complete two fellowships in California, first at the University of Southern California, where he trained with both world-renown neurosurgical spine surgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons who were pioneers in minimally invasive spine surgery. Afterward, he completed an advanced fellowship in micro-invasive, non-fusion /motion preservation, robotic, and outpatient spine techniques at Cedars-Sinai and Docs Hospital in Beverly Hills with the foremost pioneers in these latter techniques.Dr. Chung's approach to patient care is to treat every patient as he would a family member. The Patient ALWAYS comes first. Surgery is always the last resort and as an active researcher with close to 60 peer-reviewed scientific publications, he always applies the most up-to-date science to the treatment of his patients’ spine conditions. When surgery is indicated, whenever possible, he applies the most advanced and least invasive techniques to minimize post-operative pain and to accelerate surgical recovery.
