This content was provided by Dr. Williams "John I. Williams, M.D., specializes in diseases and surgeries of the spine for SpineONE, a division of Ortho NorthEast. He is the first surgeon in the region to perform the XLIF (extreme lateral interbody fusion) procedure — a minimally invasive alternative to open spine surgery. Dr. Williams has used the XLIF in more than 35 patients, with outstanding results. The Sherman, Texas, native and 1982 graduate of Fort Wayne's Homestead High School holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Dr. Williams returned to Indiana to complete his medical training at the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, where he also served his internship and residency in the department of orthopaedic surgery. He completed a fellowship in spine surgery soon afterwards at the Tulane University School of Medicine's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, New Orleans. Dr. Williams is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a Diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Indiana State Medical Society, the American Medical Association and the Fort Wayne Medical Society.

He listened to my problems and concerns. He explained my diagnosis and how he was going to treat it. He also said at anytime if I didn’t feel it was working that I could call the office and we would re-examine my treatment. I have confidence in this doctor.
