Curtis Mina, MD
Dr. Curtis Mina is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in minimally invasive methods for treating spinal pathology.
Dr. Mina studied biomedical engineering at Northwestern University following which he completed his medical degree at Duke University in 2007. His
additional training includes an orthopedic surgical residency at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, NY, which has consistently been the top-ranked
orthopedic program in the US during each of the last ten years. Dr. Mina then completed a combined neurosurgery/orthopedic surgery spine fellowship
at Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, KY. He trained with both orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons learning to incorporate methods from both
of these disciplines for treating spine pathology. Dr. Mina has also completed additional training in minimally invasive spine surgery during a traveling
fellowship to Singapore, where he worked at Singapore General Hospital shadowing many of the early pioneers of minimally invasive spine surgery.
During his career, Dr. Mina has also been active in giving back to various communities. He has traveled to Ghana where he performed complex spinal reconstructive procedures in children with severe scoliosis who were otherwise unable to obtain surgical care. Additionally, while in medical school, he organized and completed a 51-day, 4300-mile cross country bicycle trip from Virginia to Oregon as a means of raising funds to benefit the Sarcoma Foundation of America. This organization strives to develop new methods for treating children with orthopedic tumors.
Dr. Mina is excited to be practicing in Alaska, where he can pursue his love of the outdoors. In his free time he enjoys hiking, climbing, mountaineering and spending time with his wife and two young children.
