Patient Experience with Dr. Fox
Get to know Neurosurgeon Dr. Andrew Fox, who serves patients throughout the State of California.
With more than two decades of specialized experience and clinical expertise, Dr. Fox employs the most advanced solutions for spine pain and injuries. In his role as a surgeon at Total Spine Institute, with offices in Sherman Oaks and Calabasas, California, he helps patients review all non-surgical options before exploring spine surgery.
If surgery is the best solution, he uses modern minimally invasive techniques that only require small incisions and reduce risks for the patient. He uses innovative approaches, such as Vertiflex™ Procedure Superion™ Indirect Decompression System, and the latest artificial lumbar and cervical discs. He is also experienced with complex spine revision procedures.
Using his extensive background in spine surgery, Dr. Fox also serves as the Chief of Neurosurgery for Tarzana Providence Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In addition, he is an instructor and consultant for the FDA-approved Coflex® Interlaminar Stabilization® device.
With a broad educational background, he earned his medical degree at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (formerly Chicago Medical School and the Finch University of Health Sciences) in North Chicago, Illinois. He completed his internship at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, and completed his residency in neurosurgery at the University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where he was honored as Neurosurgery Chief.
A Fellow of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (FAANS), the doctor is board-certified in neurological surgery by the American Board of Neurological Surgery, whose broad aim is to encourage the study, improve the practice, elevate the standards, and advance the science of neurological surgery and thereby serve the cause of public health.
In order to stay up to date in his field, Dr. Fox is an active member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the North American Spine Society.
Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgeons are doctors who diagnose and treat problems with the nervous system, often by performing surgery on the brain or spine. They treat strokes, tumors, certain types of birth defects, infections, and head or spinal cord injuries.
On a more personal note, Dr. Fox enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, basketball, and mixed martial arts. Speaking multiple languages, he is fluent in English, Russian, Hebrew, and Yiddish.
