Graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point with Distinguish Military Graduate and Phi Kappa Phi honors, Dr. Geyer specializes in minimally-invasive and complex spine care. After graduating from West Point, Dr. Geyer initially served as an Infantry Officer before attending medical school. He earned Honor Graduate distinction at the Infantry Officer Basic Course as well as the coveted Ranger Tab, Airborne Wings, and Pathfinder Badge. He served as both a rifle platoon leader and reconnaissance platoon leader with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii earning the Expert Infantryman's Badge and Air Assault Wings. Dr. Geyer left the Infantry and graduated from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences with Alpha Omega Alpha honors. He completed his internship and residency in Neurological Surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In recognition of his dedicated service to combat injured patients, Dr. Geyer was the inaugural recipient of the Colonel Ludwig Kempe Outstanding Neurosurgical Resident award. After completing his training, Dr. Geyer served in multiple staff neurosurgery roles at U.S. Army Medical Centers in Washington and Texas. After retiring from the military, Dr. Geyer continued to serve active duty service members, retirees, and their beneficiaries in Landstuhl, Germany before returning to Washington. Recognizing that 95% of the general population will experience debilitating spine-related disorders, Dr. Geyer is committed to compassionate, individually-focused care for his patients. Individually-focused care means putting the patient's wishes first, recognizing in many instance multiple treatment options are available. In addition, individually-focused care means being available at all times, and as a patient of Dr. Geyer, you will be able to call him directly on his cell phone and can be expected to be seen within 72 hours, if not sooner. Contemporary spine care is both complex and anxiety provoking. Each patient's problems are unique, and treatment needs to be tailored to each patient's therapeutic goals, risk concerns, and severity of spinal pathology. This is accomplished by balancing both non operative treatment strategies with more invasive interventional/operative treatment options. As a patient, you will never be pressured into making rash decisions. Dr. Geyer promises to spend as much time as needed to ensure you have all the information you need to make the best decision for your health. As a neurosurgeon proud of his clinical outcomes, Dr. Geyer leverages the full spectrum of technologies to improve your quality of life. He routinely uses minimally invasive techniques and spinal disc arthroplasty technology to enhance recovery after spinal surgery. This is especially important to patients with busy lives and cannot afford to have a long postoperative recovery. Although fusion surgery may be required, Dr. Geyer promises to use this only as a course of last resort. Dr. Geyer is married with two teenage children. An outdoors enthusiast, Dr. Geyer enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, and barbecuing.
