About Us

Our Mission

Our Combined Spinal Orthopedic and Neurosurgery Mission

Come experience the difference with Beverly Hills Spine Surgery. Our combined orthopedic and neurosurgery group means patients benefit from the best of both specialties. Because of our broad experience, we can treat any spinal condition including degenerative conditions using minimally invasive surgeries, spinal tumors, spinal infections, and scoliosis. This experience combined with access to the latest technology makes our group an example of the finest that spine surgery can offer.

If you need surgery, an attending spine surgeon will perform your procedure. We do not use physician extenders (such as physician assistants) to operate on our patients. In addition, we offer concierge service to all our patients including 24/7 access to our surgeons via phone and email.

Come see our results! Ultimately, the physician-patient relationship is what determines the best outcome. Our goal is to provide a personalized and attentive experience for every patient.

Meet the doctors

  • Dr Albert Wong

    Dr. Albert Wong

    Albert P. Wong, MD is a neurosurgeon specializing in minimally invasive and complex deformity spine surgery.  Special interests include utilizing minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat degenerative spine disease (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), spine trauma, scoliosis, brain and spinal tumors.  Dr. Wong believes a minimally invasive approach decreases the surgical trauma to the patient’s body, minimizes post-operative pain, shortens overall hospitalization, and speeds recovery to daily activities.

    He also has extensive experience with image-guided surgery, percutaneous spinal decompression, and artificial disc replacements. Dr. Wong is currently Board-Eligible by the American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS).  He is a member of many national neurosurgery organizations including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS).

    Dr. Wong graduated with a B.S. in Biology with honors from the University of California, Irvine and then completed medical school at Michigan State University.  Following medical school, he then completed neurosurgery residency at Northwestern University, which was ranked the #6 best hospital and #7 best neurosurgery training program in the country by the US News and World Report Rankings in 2013-2014.  He also completed two Fellowships in minimally invasive spine and complex deformity reconstruction (the first at Northwestern University and the second at Stanford University).  During his training, he was mentored by many world renowned neurosurgerons including Dr. Hunt Batjer, Dr. Stephen Ondra, Dr. Tyler Koski, Dr. John Ratliff, and Dr. Richard Fessler.  He has over sixty peer-reviewed publications, abstracts, book chapters, and presentations in his academic career.
