Biography

Paramjit (Param) Singh, MD is a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon. He has a keen interest in treating spinal deformity, degenerative conditions of the spine, extradural spinal tumors, and trauma. He also has an interest in motion preservation surgery using cervical disc replacements and cervical laminoplasty procedures for stenosis.

Dr. Singh has experience in treating a variety of spinal disorders using both open and minimally invasive techniques. The approach to surgery is highly dependent on the specific problem being addressed. When possible and appropriate, minimally invasive techniques generally allow for a faster recovery and decreased pain. His approach to patient care hinges on mutual respect and shared decision making. A complete and open discussion regarding diagnoses, treatment options, alternatives, and risks is vital to that process.

Dr. Singh received his fellowship training at the University of California, San Francisco, where he received comprehensive training on all aspects of spine pathology. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency and internship at the University of Southern California. Dr. Singh earned his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine, where he graduated cum laude. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from University of California, Davis.

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.
