Dr. Marco Rodriguez, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon at International Spine Institute

Meet Dr. Marco Rodriguez, MD

Dr. Rodriguez is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with the International Spine Institute.

Dr. Rodriguez specializes in less-invasive procedures—such as stem cell disc therapy, endoscopic spine surgery, and artificial disc replacement—as alternatives to spinal fusion, which he considers a last-resort surgery. These procedures are less invasive, use smaller incisions, and have the goal of faster recovery. Dr. Rodgriguez uses these procedures to bridge the gap between pain management (short-term relief) and minimally invasive spinal surgery (long recovery).
