Dr. Jinwoo An

Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Jinwoo An, MD, is a Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon and head of the Spine Department at HMS-Nanoori Korean Orthopedics Center. Dr. An has meticulous and extensive training from South Korea for treating spinal disorders using the latest endoscopic technique, where it’s possible to treat most spine issues without major surgery, using only 1 or 2 small incisions which may only require a single stitch. Dr. An is one of a handful of surgeons in the region to use this effective technique, the others also from Korea. His services include endoscopic, minimally-invasive, and traditional spine surgery. He also assists patients with a safe but effective pain management philosophy and style.
