Dr. Wright III's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wright III "Dr. Wright specializes in minimally-invasive keyhole approach surgery. This means that Dr. Wright uses small tubes or retractors to approach problem areas in the brain or spine, instead of a traditional open incision. The benefit of this is that your medical problem is treated with less damage to surrounding tissues, which causes of much of the pain that patients experience after surgery. The end result is that you will go home sooner, recover quicker, and with less pain. Dr. Wright attended the Yale School of Medicine where he graduated with Honors, after spending a year doing neurosurgical research and volunteer work in Uganda. After medical school, Dr. Wright completed his neurosurgical training at the world-renowned Barrow Neurological Institute under Dr. Robert Spetzler. He also sought out specialized training in minimally invasive surgical techniques under one of the pioneers of minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Wright's academic interest centers around the transfer of neurosurgical skills to developing countries. To this end he has worked in Uganda, Tanzania, Cambodia, and Myanmar training neurosurgeons. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Wilbur Downs Award for Outstanding Research in International Health at Yale."
