Brian Perri, DO is an orthopedic spine surgeon who specializes in reconstructive surgery for spinal tumors and deformities as well as minimally invasive and motion preservation surgery for degenerative spinal diseases.
Dr. Perri's research interests stemmed from his work on traumatic brain and spinal cord injury at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Perri has researched and performed surgeries with the newest technological advances in artificial disc replacement surgery in the lumbar and cervical spine, as well as developed a classification system for cervical kyphotic deformities with strategies and techniques for surgical reconstruction. In addition, Dr. Perri has advanced thoracoscopic sympathectomy surgery to a more minimally invasive procedure by using only two pinhole incisions under each arm. This surgery has a high success rate in completely resolving dysfunctional excessive sweating.
Dr. Perri has presented his findings at the Cedars-Sinai Symposium on Current Concepts in Spinal Disorders, Cervical Spine Research Society, North American Spine Society, Richard Lende Winter Neurosurgery Conference and the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves.
Dr. Perri has been a guest reviewer for The Spine Journal, the official journal of the North American Spine Society. Dr. Perri has also co-authored spine surgery textbook chapters on the complications and treatments of anterior cervical spine surgery, surgical treatment of acute cervical fractures, techniques for cervical-thoracic pedicle subtraction osteotomy for correction of cervical kyphosis, and thoracoscopic sympathectomy for treatment of hyperhidrosis.
Presently, Dr. Perri is a member of the American Ostoepathic Association, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, North American Spine Society and International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery.
