OPA Spine Care Team

OPA’s spine specialists offer comprehensive spine treatment options — and lead the way in minimally invasive treatments. Our surgeons were the first in Alaska to perform several procedures, including disc replacement, minimally invasive IO Flex lumbar decompression, and a robotic-arm guidance system spine surgery. Patients have access to many non-surgical solutions, including those provided by our physiatrist.

Both our spine surgeons are board certified and fellowship trained in spine surgery, and their respective PAs have extensive spine training as well. Dr. James Eule specializes in non-operative and operative treatment of complex cervical and lumbar spine conditions, including artificial disc replacement, and is a recognized expert in scoliosis treatment. Dr. Flanum is fellowship trained in both spine surgery and sports medicine. He provides minimally invasive and non-operative treatment for the full range of conditions of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, including disk herniation, spinal deformity, fractures, spinal stenosis and more. Dr. Taylor is our physical medicine (physiatry) specialist. He is one of very few physicians in Alaska doing permanent partial impairment ratings (PPIs) for Workers Comp patients and provides patients with specialized electrodiagnostic medicine studies and acute pain management services.
