Dr. Charles Gordon Brings Minimally Invasive, Motion Sparing Spine Surgery to the Team of Orthopaedic Specialists
DAPHNE, AL (August 16, 2018) – The physicians and staff of Daphne-based Baldwin Bone & Joint are pleased to announce the association of fellowship-trained spine surgeon, Charles Gordon, Jr., MD.
“Early intervention with comprehensive care is key to helping my patients get back to doing what they love,” says Gordon. “For anyone suffering the pain and disability associated with spinal injury or disease, a successful outcome begins with early intervention and open conversation,” continues Dr. Gordon. “The first step to developing an individualized treatment plan is to understand each patient’s goals.” (Photo: Dr. Charles Gordon, Jr.)
Gordon recently completed a spine surgery fellowship with the University of Maryland’s distinguished R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center located in Baltimore, MD. His training in minimally invasive and robotic spine surgery techniques allow him to treat common spinal conditions with small incisions, less blood loss, less initial pain and most importantly a more rapid recovery and return to activities for patients.
A Mississippi native, Gordon earned his BS in general physics from Millsaps College and his MD from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He completed his internship in general surgery at Vanderbilt University and residency in orthopaedic surgery from State University of New York at Buffalo. He comes to the Baldwin Bone & Joint orthopaedic team by way of the University of Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center, where he completed a one-year fellowship in the nation’s first and only integrated trauma hospital.
