Dr. Rogers' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rogers "I'm a fellowship trained, board certified orthopedic spine doctor who also has a degree in physical therapy. Having both degrees and years of experience in both fields helps me bring my patients an in-depth level of diagnosis and treatment that's rare among orthopedic spine doctors. Because so many of my patients need some form of physical therapy, I can work very closely with the on-site physical therapy team at my practice. I want each of my patients to get better, and I partner with them to investigate their spine and overall health issues until I come up with the right diagnosis and we agree on the treatment program that will be best for them. In most cases this doesn't involve surgery. There are many effective non-surgical options that work for most of my patients. For the small percentage of my patients that do need surgery, I use minimally invasive, state-of-the-art techniques. I became a physical therapist after hurting my back while playing college basketball. During my treatment, I experienced how wonderful and caring the therapists were. They also made a huge impact on my health by teaching me how to get relief from my back pain and get my strength back. I followed my interests and heart into the field. I stayed on the physical therapy path for a while but realized I wanted to take it one step further and become a spine doctor. Now I get to help people with any type of back pain, whether they need surgery or not."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rogers "Because back pain can be so debilitating to overall physical and emotional health, I treat each of my patients with sensitivity and a passion to help them. The spine is extremely complex. Because of that I've been trained to take a complete look at each of my patient's health, lifestyle, and health history. This also includes a thorough physical exam, usually MRI and/or x-ray images, and sometimes other images and test results. Suggesting a treatment plan comes after I use these methods to understand what's going on. Then we work together to craft the best treatment plan for them."

Patient Comments (24)

I have had several back surgeries due to injuries. After I sustained my last injury, over a year ago, I not only had severe back pain, but also burning in both legs. I had lost hope of having any kind of relief. Dr Rogers was my surgeon to implant a nerve stimulator in my back. While she was operating, she was able to remove some hardware from prior surgeries. I now have no burning in my legs. My back still needs to get stronger, but I have hope for the first time in a long time!!

Dr Rogers is a caring and very skilled surgeon. After trying every conservative treatment over about a years time without relief of pain, she was ready to do surgery on my lower spine. I finally have relief from pain and am back to my normal activities. I highly recommend her knowing that she is so experienced and only does surgery when absolutely necessary. Her staff are friendly, kind, and helpful.
in Torrance, CA |
Our first experience with Dr. Rogers was when she did my wife's back surgery in 2015. December 2016 was my turn. I had surgery to fuse the L5-S1 vertebrae and relieve pressure on the nerves that caused sciatica. Although back surgery is not for the faint of heart, it is not something one should be apprehensive about in that it is dangerous or could create permanent complications. Dr. Rogers is both very skilled in her specialty and very caring.. She is the BEST spine surgeon in SoCal!!!!!!
in Carson, CA |
On March 7, 2017 Dr. Rogers gave me my life back. Dr. Rogers performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at my C5/C6 vertebrae that day. It’s been a little over 5 months since my surgery and I haven’t felt this good in 25 years. I’ve got some hardware in my neck I didn’t have before, and I know every day how amazingly lucky I am to have had all the stars align and to have ended up as Dr. Rogers patient.

Dr Tiffany Rogers and her assistant PA Jeffrey Satterfield have help me a lot with my severe back problems I have been so satisfied and impress with the care especially after my surgery I would highly recommend them to anybody that I know if they need a good orthopedist staff is friendly and have easy access for appointment thank you again Fidel Usi
in Carson, CA |
Dr. Rogers is the BEST! Suffered for DECADES and had a terrible HMO and saw many inept physicians along the way who failed to properly diagnose my conditions. Dr. Tiffany diagnosed my conditions immediately. Had two spinal fusions-lumbar/cervical spine. Expect one year of healing time for each. It is well worth it. She is also a Physical Therapist so that's an added extra bonus. No concern for losing nerve function as it is monitored closely during surgery. She's awesome. Very kind too!

I had spinal fusion. All I heard from doctors that it was a mistake. However, Dr Rogers was so helpful. She helped me understand what I had and what she could do. I had Spondylolisthesis. She explained every detail about my situation and about the surgery and what to expect. I asked many crazy questions and she answered everything. Even when I repeated the question. It is now 2017 and I am doing everything. Thanks Dr Rogers!
Palos Verdes Estates, CA |
The lower back fusion Dr. Rogers performed has changed my life - it's the first time in over 5 years that I have been pain free. My only regret is that I didn't see her sooner!
in Torrance, CA |
I have had a great experience with Dr. Rogers. With my back problems, she had me start with physical and aquatic therapy. Dr. Rogers also had me do a series of epidurals, which were not a permanent fix. We both decided it was time for back surgery. I had pain medication for many years, but 3 months after surgery I was able to go off of it! My advice: Don't wait too long to have back surgery-especially with Dr. Rogers. My life has changed dramatically after being out of pain!
in Torrance, CA |
Simply stated, an awesome doctor and gifted surgeon! The staff is phenomenal!
in Gardena, CA |
Absolutely THE BEST around! Caring, compassionate and super talented. She has done cervical fusion C4 - T1 and just did major lumbar reconstruction of L1 - S1. After the 2nd day of lumbar surgery I woke up in the recovery room with her at my bedside. She's the best there is. If you want success with your back surgery...Trust no one else.
in Torrance |
Dr. Rogers was able to diagnose my problem after I had been to my primary doctor, chiropractor, neurologist, gynecologist, acupuncturist, and psychologist. I had severe burning in my hands and arms that prevented me from sleeping. This brought on severe anxiety and panic. It was a difficult 7-month ordeal but Dr. Rogers knew right away what was happening to me. I had spinal fusion on C3-C7. The recovery was long and scary but she was there every step of the way with compassion and care.
in Redondo Beach, CA |
My lower back issue is a long time injury and probably needs surgery however it was recommended to try the injections and therapy. This worked ok but a temporary fix. On average I throw out my back 3-4 times a year and each time it gets worse. In bed for a week, severe pain, muscle spasisms and can’t walk. My last visit to Dr. Rodgers she spent 5 minutes with me and seemed to under care my situation. Wouldn’t discuss any other solutions or surgery and prescribed pain killers that didn’t work.
in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |
One of the most knowledgeable and capable doctors I've ever known. Nine years ago I badly needed spinal fusion due to badly herniated disks, spondylolisthesis, & stenosis in my lower back. All I can say is that after a long recovery and physical therapy, I was finally able to walk again. I have never felt rushed and have always felt Dr. Rogers listened to and understood me. No complaints here!
in Lomita, CA |
I first met Dr. Rogers approx. 9 years ago. Since then, I have had 2 back surgeries, the second being a lumbar fusion and the third a cervical spine fusion. Let me say that any future spinal issues will be performed by Dr. Rogers. She has the best bed-side manner of any doctor I have ever met. She is honest and to the point. With all 3 surgeries, by listening to her instructions and following them precisely (as well as physical therapy), my recuperation time was minimal! She's the best!!
in Torrance, CA |
Dr Rogers truly cares about her patients and her skill as a surgeon is superior to most. The compassion she shows for those in pain from spinal issues is truly genuine and she does everything within her abilities to help the whole person. She is a real gem and If you need a spine surgeon it will be difficult to find anyone better.
in Newport Beach, CA |
I was having severe leg pains, after having an MRI it was noted I had a large cyst on spine that needed to be removed. Dr. Rogers was highly recommended by a retired surgeon who I knew and trusted. After one visit to Dr. Rogers office and having her explain the details of surgery and what need to be done her professional skill and concern for my well being was clearly felt my me and my wife. I am now pain free and doing all the things I enjoyed before. Thank you Dr. Rogers your awesome!
in Long Beach, CA |
I suffered from severe back pain for 13 years before deciding to have surgery. Dr. Rogers was recommended to me by 2 other friends who had successful surgeries performed by her. Surgery was my last resort and not something Dr. Rogers pushed at all. My surgery was a total success and I think it's because she carefully selects which procedure to do for each patient, definitely not a one size fits all approach. I feel better now than I have in many years.
in San Pedro, California |
Dr. Roger's was able to to see my condition, and address the issues properly. I knew two friends, who had the same surgery, by Dr. Roger's. They both said their experience was great. I was confident with her diagnosis and the surgery she said I required. The entire experience, went very well. I healed fast, with her guidance. No complications. Her office and staff, were very polite. I would definitely recommend Dr. Roger's to family and friends.
in Torrance, CA |
Dr. Rogers is a very busy doctor due to specialty. Yes, you may wait a while to be seen, but when you see Dr. Rogers, you will find she doesn't rush your appointment and listens to all your concerns. I had a laminectomy of L 4&5. Great surgery and recovery. Nothing like you hear about all the bad surgeries. I find that many people had chronic back pain, but refuse to have surgery because of the bad things they hear about the procedure and outcome. I'm fine now, due to Dr. Rogers.
in San Pedro, CA |
In my humble opinion Dr. Tiffany Rogers is an angle. I had sever lower back pain and lightning bolts shooting down both legs. She operated on my lower 3/4, 4/5 vertibrate on Dec. 02, 2015. By Christmas I was helping decorate our tree and walking 20 min a day. Today, six months later, I have no more pain in my legs and only slight pain in my back if I do too much (and I should know better). Dr. Tiffany Rogers, gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Rogers.
in Torrance, CA |
For months I experienced extreme back & leg pain, and toe numbness. An MRI indicated severe degenerative disc disease. Several people recommended Dr. Rogers, who I liked immediately; I felt she genuinely cared about me. She explained my condition in detail & answered all my questions. I give credit to her excellent surgical skills and post-op guidance. Although I'm continuing PT and improving, the pain in my back and leg is gone. I highly recommend Dr. Rogers without reservation.
in Torrance, CA |
I was hesitant about having back surgery but after Dr, Rogers explained everything thoroughly to me I felt comfortable about having the surgery. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. The recovery was much faster than I expected. Pain management worked great. Only needed it for less than 2 weeks. 10 months later I feel great.
in Torrance, CA |
Sorry it has taken me so long to say how grateful I am to you for giving me back my independence free from the pain I had when we first met in 2014. I still use my walker or cane, but that does not keep me from driving and doing things on my own. Wishing you and your family a happy Holiday . With many thanks, Sally Silver
