Certified Diplomat of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery
A fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery, Dr. Pflum earned his undergraduate degree at Georgetown University, Washington, DC and his M.D. from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Dr. Pflum is an experienced orthopedic surgeon who has always done spine surgery as part of his practice. He has also performed thousands of arthroscopic procedures. Most spinal surgeons have relatively little experience with arthroscopy.
This unusual combination makes Dr. Pflum uniquely qualified for this revolutionary breakthrough in spinal surgery. Dr. Pflum has now performed hundreds of cervical and hundreds of lumbar endoscopic procedures. He also continues to perform arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and the knee.
Dr. Pflum has a publication on Cervical Spine Arthroscopy in the May 2008 Journal of Arthroscopy and has recently given a paper on Cervical Spine Arthroscopy in France to the International Intradiscal Therapy Society.
