Dr. Neville Alleyne, is one of the nation’s leading surgeons specializing in robotic spine procedures. Caring for thousands of orthopedic patients in San Diego County since 1989, he is on the staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas. Dr. Alleyne says he treats each patient as if she or he was a member of his own family.
Dr. Alleyne has personally performed or has teamed with a surgeon partner on more than 800 spine procedures using a first-generation FDA-approved robotic platform that aids in pre-surgery planning and placement of the implants and hardware required for vertebral fusions to stabilize spines and relieve pain or other debilitating symptoms.
Now trained on a next-generation robotic system, the Mazor X, Dr. Alleyne became the first U.S. surgeon west of the Rocky Mountains to perform a lower back surgery using the advanced platform in January 2017 at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.
For many patients, the road to a spinal surgery can be preceded by non-surgical treatments that didn’t provide lasting relief of pain or symptoms. Such non-surgical treatments may include medications, physical therapy and spinal injections. Dr. Alleyne treats patients with scoliosis, spinal fractures, degenerative disc disease and other serious back conditions.
In collaboration with his staff, Dr. Alleyne works closely with patients and families to assess spine conditions and recommend the most appropriate course of medical or surgical treatment. Dr. Alleyne has a particular interest in spinal care and been awarded patents and credited with inventions for related devices. A native of New York City, Dr. Alleyne is married and has a daughter and two sons.
