John C. Barr, MD
Neurosurgeon, Spine Surgeon
My education and career have brought me opportunities to combine my appeal for the surgical art to medicine with a desire to achieve the highest quality of care. The drives for what patients deserve, a symbiotic relationship of quality and advanced surgical performance is what has drawn me to the Duke community. I aspire to learn from both colleagues and patients to enhance future encounters. I view my patient’s surgical experience as a team; we work together and advance together. I have an intense interest in pathology involving the entire spinal axis including sagittal deformity, degenerative processes, oncology, minimally invasive approaches and trauma. I look to serve those in need of answers in this spectrum in a comprehensive and compassionate manner. I aim to focus treatments based on patient’s characteristics and delivering the best-individualized treatment plan. I thank you in advance for the opportunity to help you and our community.
