Dr. Ahn's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ahn "I am a Korean American who was born in the United States, after my parents emigrated to the United States from Korea. My parents lived through the Korean War, and came to America, for a better future for myself and my brother. I am extremely proud to be an American and feel that we live in the best country on the planet. I grew up in Illinois outside of Chicago, where my father practiced primary care medicine. I went to public schools, and went to college in Baltimore Maryland at Johns Hopkins University. There, I graduated in 3 years and spent a year doing research at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. I was lucky to gain entrance to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and then trained at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Department of Orthopedic Surgery. I stayed at Johns Hopkins to undergo my specialty training in Spine Surgery with one of the most prominent surgeons in the history of spine surgery, Dr. John Kostuik. I met my wife, Kerri, while training in Baltimore. She grew up in Marshfield Mass, and wanted to return to New England. I joined Dr. Kleeman at NH Neurospine in 2000, and our practice included 3 doctors, including myself with less than 10 employees. Since then we have grown to an organization of 11 physicians and over 40 employees. I enjoy taking care of patients, and my success in pain resolution and function restoration as a surgeon has brought me joy in my career. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ahn "I am an extremely conservative spine surgeon.  Because our practice at NH Neurospine offers conservative treatments such as Physical Therapy and Epidural Steroid Injections, our philosophy of reserving surgery as a last resort has been extremely effective in successfully treating patients with Spine pathology for over 20 years.  If surgery needs to be performed, our goal is maximizing success with an experienced surgeon, and compassionate PA's with a well coordinated team approach."

On Dec. 27, 2017 I had spinal surgery done by Dr. Uri Ahn. From the beginning I liked Dr. Ahn. My pre-op consultation showed Dr. Ahn to be kind , gave time to me to explain the surgery, and was very knowledgeable. Post-op he was the same, a good kind man. Results of the surgery were fantastic....more

Best doctor ever. I had an extremely painful herniated disk in my neck and could barely move my arm. I had a surgery with another surgeon in town and felt worse. Dr. Ahn was recommended to fix me. He calmly looked over my case, and spent all the time he needed to with me to answer my questions...more

Dr Ahn's straight forward understandable information and compassion for my fear of surgery helped calm my nerves over this procedure. Excellent surgery and follow-up care. I would recommend Dr. Ahn to anyone needing spinal surgery.
