Richard Menger, M.D., M.P.A., assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and chief of complex spine surgery with USA Health, will present “Back Pain: From Conservative Therapy to Giant Surgery” at the Med School Café lecture on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 11 a.m. The event will be held virtually.

Menger has a specific focus on complex spinal reconstructions for spinal deformity in children and adults. He performs minimally invasive spinal procedures (MIS) and has a special expertise in the entire spectrum of state-of-the-art surgical and conservative management of pediatric scoliosis.

Menger is a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon with training in neurological and orthopedic spine surgery. He completed the advanced pediatric spinal deformity orthopedic fellowship at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. During his neurosurgery residency at Louisiana State University, he received additional training with an enfolded fellowship in pediatric spinal deformity at Shriners Hospital for Children.

To further his research mission, Menger received a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. His research focuses on operative techniques, clinical outcomes, and the intersection of policy and economics on the delivery of spine surgery.
