Dr. Venkat Sethuraman is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, fellowship trained in spine surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He has done more than 1,000 spine surgeries over his 20 years in practice in the Dallas area.

Unlike other spine surgeons who often spend 30% of their time on brain disorders or treatment of knees and hips, Dr. Sethuraman focuses 100% on the care of back and neck pain and other complex spine problems.

Dr. Sethuraman is proficient in minimally invasive spine surgery techniques enabling outpatient surgery through a half-inch incision. He stays current on the newest advances in spine surgery and non-surgical treatment options. He is referred patients from across the Dallas area and its suburbs, as well as patients who travel from Mexico for advanced spine care.

Dr. Sethuraman completed a fellowship in spine surgery at the renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. A fellowship is the most advanced and specialized physician training available.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1994 at Rutgers University graduating magna cum laude. He earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1998. He completed an internship in General Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital along with his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery. 

Following his residency, he went to the world famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he completed a spine surgery fellowship. Dr. Sethuraman is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the North American Spine Society, and the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association.

Recognizing the challenges of developing a freestanding spine center and a modern medical practice, in 2017 Dr. Sethuraman completed a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the prestigious Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.
