Professional Summary

Owoicho Adogwa, M.D., M.P.H is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine. Focused on the treatment of spinal diseases, with primary expertise in adult and pediatric scoliosis, degenerative spinal pathologies, and spinal oncology. He is a specialist both in advanced minimally invasive and traditional open techniques.
 
His special interests include cervical degenerative disease, cervical deformity, adult and pediatric deformities, neuromuscular deformities, spinal oncology, lumbar degenerative pathologies, and complex primary and revisional spinal surgery.
 
After earning his medical degree at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Dr. Adogwa performed his residencies in neurological surgery at Duke University Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center.
 
Dr. Adogwa believes that a surgeon with the most comprehensive training is best able to treat disorders of the spine effectively. During his residency at RUSH, he completed an advanced complex spine and minimally invasive spine surgery fellowship under internationally renowned spine surgeons Vincent Traynelis, M.D., and Richard Fessler, M.D. Post-residency, he completed an adult and pediatric deformity fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, where he trained under the direction of world-renowned surgeons Munish Gupta, M.D., Keith Bridwell, M.D., Michael Kelly, M.D., Jacob Buchowski, M.D., and others. Dr. Adogwa then pursued additional surgical training in advanced osteotomy techniques in Lyon, France, under the tutelage of Pierre Roussouly, M.D., and in Accra, Ghana, under the mentorship of Oheneba Boachie, M.D. (founder of FOCOS Hospital and past president of the Scoliosis Research Society).
 
Given this background, Dr. Adogwa is one of only a few surgeons in the world who is cross-trained in both orthopedic spine surgery and neurosurgery, which has provided him with unique qualifications to treat patients with complex spinal conditions, bringing to each patient the expertise necessary to evaluate and, if required, surgically treat disorders of the spine.
 
Dr. Adogwa is a prolific surgeon-scientist, having published more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific papers and book chapters and presented as an invited speaker, program faculty, or guest lecturer at more than 180 scientific meetings across the world.
 
He has served on the editorial board of numerous scientific journals, including as Associate Editor of The Spine Journal, and is a reviewer for more than 20 neurosurgery and orthopedic journals.

He has held numerous leadership positions in neurosurgery and spine surgery organizations and is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the North American Spine Society, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Lumbar Spine Research Society, AO Spine, the Scoliosis Research Society, the Texas Medical Association, the Dallas Medical Association, the American College of Surgeons, and the Council of State Neurological Societies.

Among his numerous honors and awards, Dr. Adogwa has received the prestigious Journalistic and Academic Neurosurgical Excellence (J.A.N.E) Award for research excellence from the 2017 Joint Spine Section; the Charlie Kuntz Scholar Award; best paper awards at the 2014 and 2017 North American Spine Society Meetings; the 2016 Robert Florin Resident Award from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons; the 2014 Regis W. Haid Jr. Deformity Research Award from the Joint Spine Section; and the 2014 Mayfield Clinical Research Award and Outcomes Committee Award.

Research and Practice Interests

I am a Neurosurgeon cross trained in orthopedic spine surgery with significant experience treating patients with spinal disorders. My primary areas of expertise are adult and pediatric scoliosis, and I have received specialized training in advanced minimally invasive spinal surgery as well as traditional open techniques. I am an expert in the evaluation and treatment of pediatric as well as adult spinal deformities.

An increasingly common clinical scenario within neurosurgery and orthopedic spine surgery is to encounter older adult patients with symptomatic degenerative scoliosis and multiple chronic conditions and goals of treatment that are not met. These patients present with high decisional regret because of malalignment between the treatment(s) rendered and the older adult patients’ values, health outcomes goals, and health care preferences. I believe that this represents a missed opportunity for us as surgeons, which ultimately affects the outcomes of our older adult patients. As a fellowship trained spinal surgeon (cross-trained in orthopedics and neurosurgery), who operates on many older adults, I am eager to see outcomes improve in this population.

I am an Early Stage Investigator and Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. I have an active clinical practice focused on the management of degenerative disorders of the spine, correction of adult scoliosis, as well as surgical management of spinal oncology.  I am interested in the intersection of biology, epidemiology, and health services in care of older adults with degenerative spinal disorders, and my primary objective as a young investigator is to build a research program focused on durable and sustainable solutions to optimizing surgical outcomes in older adults.  Throughout my graduate training at Duke University, Rush Medical Center, and Washington University in St. Louis, I have had the opportunity to conduct clinical and health services research assessing treatment trends and outcomes across a number of spinal pathologies. To date, these projects have largely lacked a translational component that can incorporate actionable changes that alter patient outcomes. It is an aspiration of mine to understand how patient priorities-aligned decision-making impacts outcomes in older adults with spinal pathologies. Ultimately, I hope to influence the field of spine surgery by shifting the paradigm towards attainment of patient priorities, unique to the older adult.
