Dr. Evan Packer, MD
Evan M. Packer, MD, is one of Palm Beach County's most respected neurosurgeons with a comprehensive practice in brain and spinal surgery. A board-certified specialist, Dr. Packer regularly diagnoses and treats a wide range of neurological conditions, including brain, neck and spinal injuries; brain tumors; brain hemorrhages; spinal stenosis; disc bulges and herniations; neck and back pain; spinal compression fractures; sciatica; and other disorders related to the nervous system. A managing partner at the Brain and Spine Center in Boca Raton, Dr. Packer has extensive clinical training and experience in the latest treatments for trauma and elective surgical patients. Known for his thorough care and deep compassion, he takes the extra time to discuss complex procedures with patients and their families, determine the best treatment, and manage follow-up care and the rehabilitation process. Testimonials-- Dr. Packer believes in exploring every treatment option before recommending surgery. "Many patients with chronic back problems don't need spinal surgery," Dr. Packer says. "But it takes a specialist familiar with treating nervous system conditions to determine which treatment approach is best for each individual patient." In addition to his office practice, Dr. Packer treats patients and covers trauma cases at Delray Medical Center and performs elective surgery cases at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, with full privileges at the new Marcus Neuroscience Institute. He has held numerous leadership positions on the Medical Executive Committee at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Admired throughout South Florida for his clinical expertise, Dr. Packer is a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and affiliate assistant professor at the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Packer has contributed to the "Textbook of Neurological Surgery," and presented extensively to other physicians on minimally invasive spine surgery, treatment of brain tumors and many other topics. He is an active member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the North American Spine Society. In addition, Dr. Packer regularly attends national meetings and symposiums focused on the latest techniques for treating complex disorders of the brain and spine. A native of New York, Dr. Packer earned his bachelor's degree with honors from the University of Michigan and his medical degree from the University of South Florida's College of Medicine. As a result of his high academic achievement, he was elected to the prestigious medical school honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. Dr. Packer completed his internship in surgery and his residency in neurological surgery at University of South Florida Affiliated Hospitals and Clinics in Tampa. He also received advanced training in neurosurgical oncology at Moffitt Comprehensive Cancer Center and Research Institute in Tampa. "For more than 20 years, our neurosurgery group has been committed to delivering the highest level of brain and spinal care to patients and their families," says Dr. Packer. "We are proud of our clinical outcomes and the role we play in fulfilling the medical needs of our community."

Excellent doctor, professional and skilled. Took great care of me
Boynton Beach, FL |
Dr. Packer is an outstanding Dr. He is compassionate, attentive and gives all the time needed. He did not rush us and explained everything fully. We were very lucky to have found him. Couldn't have been happier. His office staff was very efficient and responded when you called with a question.
Thank you for the kind words and trusting me with your care. Patients deserve time and questions answered.

Clare, Highland Beach, 2016 Just turning 65 , never having had surgery, and now in agonizing pain for a synovial cyst on my spine, I was not sure where to turn. The first name that came up was Dr. Evan Packer. I thank God every day since my surgery that he was my surgeon. As soon as I met with him the confidence in his capabilities walked in the room with him and I knew I would be in good hands. He is simply the "Best", kind, caring and extremely competent. Thank you Dr. Evan Packer.
Thanks Clare, wishing you continued good health.

Dr Packer is a wonderful surgeon. He is knowledgeable & friendly. He explains the options to his patients so they understand why he recommends a procedure. I had successful surgery and would return to Dr. Packer if the situation warranted it. His office & staff are very polite and efficient.

Dr. Evan Packer is smart, talented,caring and communicative. He operated on me , doing a lumbar fusion 7 weeks ago. This was a bit of a serious operation, he totally explained it in language that was understandable and forthright.Dr. Packer would always personally return my calls.He has changed my life with his skillful hands, and I will always remember him!

I know that I might embarrass the doctor by saying that he is amazing but that's how I feel after he operated on me for a brain tumor. Fortunately, it turned out to be benign. The doctor's communication with his patients (and spouses) is also great since he listens as well as provides important follow up information once the operation has been completed. In my opinion, he is aware of and uses the latest surgical techniques based on my experience with him.
Thank you Micheal. Thankful you did well - continued healthy.
