Biography

Dr. Jason Thompson is board certified and a fellowship-trained spine surgeon who specializes in the care of patients with simple or complex problems of the neck or back. As an expert in the care of the spine, he may prescribe treatments including physical therapy, spinal injec-tions, medications or massage, or he may perform surgical procedures including decompres-sion, disc replacement, scoliosis correction or spinal fusion. Dr. Thompson has special interests in treating young adults with scoliosis and in using cutting-edge technology to reduce the "footprint" of spinal surgery. Recognizing that each patient is unique, he helps each person develop an individualized treatment plan. Whether a patient comes to him with leg cramps from stenosis or a numb arm from a blown-out disc in the neck, his goal is helping people regain their maximum potential. Dr. Thompson serves as Medical Director of The Spine Center, which allows him to improve his patients' experience as they move through the office, hospital, and rehabilitation phases of treatment. Coordinating and collaborating with other experts, such as therapists, radiologists, and physiatrists, Dr. Thompson utilizes the strengths of a team approach to help his patients reach their goals. He believes in the power and success of an accurate diagnosis, rapid, individualized treatment, and multi-modality rehabilitative care. Patients frequently refer their families and friends to Dr. Thompson, and he believes there is no greater compliment than a satisfied patient saying, "Thanks! I'll send my family to you." A Florida native, Dr. Thompson has embraced the beauties of the Pacific Northwest and enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, sailing and skiing.

    I had surgery in march 2015 and my Procedure: L4/5 ALIF, L4/5 Percutaneous PSIF Dr. Thompson and his staff were awesome. It has been over a year now and I am feeling great. I would recommend him to anyone. Very professional. The whole experience at Valley Medical Center could not have been any better. This is one satisfied patient.
