Biography

David Jackson, MD is a board certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon. He subscribes to a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of conditions of the spine.

Prior to joining The CORE Institute, Dr. Jackson cared for patients in Northern California at the Spine Care Medical Group. He strongly believes that physical therapy, pain management, therapeutic injections, bracing and other modalities are central to the treatment of his patients and he works closely with therapists, pain management providers and other physicians to insure that his patients get the most comprehensive treatments available, tailored to their needs. When surgery is indicated Dr. Jackson provides the latest treatment of degenerative, traumatic and sports related conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, as well as spinal deformities caused by tumors, infection and spinal cord or other neurologic injuries or conditions. He has a considerable experience in less invasive techniques of the cervical and lumbar spine as well as traditional open and major reconstructive surgical techniques for patients with advanced deformities or those in need of revision surgery after failed spinal procedures.

Dr. Jackson received his fellowship and residency program in spinal surgery at the University of Maryland and Maryland Shock Trauma Center. During his fellowship, he gained significant experience treating critically ill and injured patients, and was involved in cutting-edge spine research and advanced medical procedures. Dr. Jackson received his medical training at Drexel University School of Medicine in Philadelphia where he was a student of much distinction. At Drexel, Dr. Jackson graduated at the top of his class and was elected to national honor societies including the Pathologist’s Chairman’s Honor Society and the prestigious and extremely competitive Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society. He completed his undergraduate training at New England’s Quinnipiac University, where he graduated cum laude.

Dr. Jackson has been active in research throughout his training and career. He has published multiple textbook chapters, completed multiple biomechanical studies and his many research endeavors have won awards from both the Maryland Orthopedic Association and The American College of Spine Surgery. He continues to actively pursue his research interests with a current focus on developing new techniques for safer and less invasive cervical and thoracolumbar instrumentation.

Patient Satisfaction Reviews

The CORE Institute is focused on providing an exceptional patient care experience. To ensure that we are holding ourselves to the highest standards, we measure all aspects of patient satisfaction with the National Research Corporation, an independent patient satisfaction company. This service partnership provides the technology to display ratings on our physician profile pages, and all ratings are verified and submitted by actual patients.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score.  submitted by patients as a reflection of their views and opinions. The resulting ratings are not directly endorsed by and do not necessarily reflect the views of The CORE Institute.
