Meet Dr. Venu Akuthota

The Spine Center at University of Colorado Hospital specializes in treating people with lower back and neck pain using proven therapies and cutting-edge technology.

Though our highly skilled spine surgeons are equipped to handle the most complex surgical procedures on-site, we start with a conservative approach, considering surgery only if all non-surgical options are unsuccessful. From diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation, all services are available on-site to provide the care you need.

Dr. Venu Akuthota is a Physiatrist with The Spine Center at University of Colorado Hospital.
