Dr. Floyd's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Floyd "My father was Air Force pilot and later a pilot for Eastern Air Lines, so we moved around every couple of years. This gave me a broad exposure to many parts of the United States. I chose to live in Idaho because of the people, the natural beauty and resources, the recreational activities, and the excellent medical community. I wanted to be a physician since about age 6 and devoted my life to attaining that goal. I chose surgery, then orthopaedic surgery, then finally spine surgery as my area of specialization. I trained at top centers around the world in order to become the best spine surgeon I could be. Spine surgery is complex and challenging, and it provides a great opportunity to make a real difference in peoples lives. It is the best job I could imagine. When my wife and I first moved to Idaho we started in Sun Valley where I cared for Olympic and professional athletes, sports medicine and spine surgery. After nine years I advanced my training by going to the Johns Hopkins University to study under the world's top adult spinal deformity surgeon, Dr. John Kostuik. We returned to Idaho and moved to Boise, where I first practiced with Boise Orthopedic Clinic. In 2012 I started a solo, independent practice. My interests outside of medicine include activities that I can enjoy with my wife, whom I met on the first day of my internship in 1982. We have a small ranch where we raise horses. We both enjoy long trail rides. My other life-long interest is photography. We also ski, hike and travel. I joined the United States Army after 9/11 at the age of 47 and was deployed with the 934th Forward Surgical Team to far forward positions during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. It was the most profound experience of my life. "

This content was provided by Dr. Floyd "Our goal is to help you get through your spinal injury or disorder to regain a normal, active and painfree life. It is our responsibility to look at each patient with an integrated, holistic approach, not just considering your spine, but you as a whole individual because so many other health concerns impact your spine.

We can coordinate the entire range of spine treatment, but our office focuses primarily on surgical interventions. I have been a practicing orthopaedic surgeon since 1989, and have completed three Fellowships in Complex Spine Surgery, including complex adult spinal reconstruction. I have the training and experience to offer the broadest range of treatment options, reserving surgery only for when absolutely necessary. 

We refer to a vast number of highly qualified, professional health care providers for people with spinal problems who need other treatment options, such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, weight loss, smoking cessation, etc."

Very cautious, practical, realistic, honest, caring, and extremely capable individual. If you do not need surgery, he will recommend alternatives. He spends whatever time you need and explains everything carefully and easy to understand. I had neck and back surgery including fusions and...more
