Our Mission

Come experience the difference with Beverly Hills Spine Surgery. Our combined orthopedic and neurosurgical 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 don’t use trainees (such as medical students) or 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! Click this link to see our infection, readmission and morbidity numbers. Ultimately, the physician-patient relationship is what determines the best outcome. Our goal is to provide a personalized and attentive experience for every patient.

  • rasouli

    Dr. Alexandre Rasouli

    Alexandre Rasouli, MD is a nationally recognized surgeon specializing in the surgical and nonsurgical management of cervical, thoracic and lumbar disorders of the spine including degenerative disorders, spinal trauma, adult and pediatric deformity, spinal oncology, and minimally invasive surgery.

    Dr. Rasouli gained prominence in the field of spinal disorders after his discovery in 2007 of a novel method of regenerating neurons damaged by spinal cord injury using peripheral nerve transplantation. He was also the first to describe the genetic response of spinal cord tissue to traumatic injury. His research focuses on developing a cure for paralysis. He conducted pioneering work at the Beckman Laser Institute, Reeve-Irvine Center for Spinal Cord Injury, the Miami Project, and the Cedars-Sinai Tissue Engineering Laboratory.

    He has authored over 50 manuscripts, abstracts, book chapters, and presentations in the neurosurgical and orthopedic literature. He has led a number of clinical trials for advanced surgical techniques, including motion-preserving and minimally invasive surgery. He also serves as a reviewer for the prestigious Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

    Dr. Rasouli graduated with honors in Molecular Immunology from Stanford University. He earned his medical degree at the University of California, Irvine, where he explored a method of reshaping biological tissue using lasers. He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the same institution and served as Chief Resident his final year.

    Dr. Rasouli completed two coveted fellowships in spinal surgery. The first was in adult degenerative and traumatic disorders at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. The second was in spinal deformity surgery at Miami Children’s Hospital. He was trained by three world-renowned spine surgeons: Drs. Frank Eismont, Harry Shufflebarger and Barth Green. He received extensive training in both neurosurgical and orthopedic spine surgery techniques. His practice attracts patients from around the country and the world.
