Dr. Bobba: Each Spine Patient is Unique, Deserves Tailored Treatment

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (October 7, 2022) — University Orthopedics, one of the region’s largest, most comprehensive orthopedic practices, recently announced the addition of fellowship-trained spine surgeon Dr. Vamsy Bobba to the Center for Spine Health.

Dr. Bobba – a fellowship-trained spine surgeon who specializes in treating conditions of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine – is now seeing patients at the practice’s locations in Johnston, Rhode Island, and in Easton and Raynham in Massachusetts.

“The addition of Dr. Bobba – an extremely skilled surgeon committed to enhanced patient outcomes – to our team of renowned spine surgeons will help ensure University Orthopedics continues to provide our patients with the highest quality, most cutting-edge orthopedic care available,” said Edward Akelman, MD, President of University Orthopedics. “A doctor of his caliber is undoubtedly an asset to our team and, more importantly, to our patients.”

Dr. Bobba’s areas of focus include spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, instability, deformity, trauma, compression fractures, tumor, and infection. He has extensive experience with in-patient and outpatient procedures; fusions and motion-preserving (non-fusion) procedures; minimally invasive and robotic procedures; disc replacements; and kyphoplasties. 

“Each patient’s situation is unique and should be treated as such. It is always my goal to tailor an appropriate plan for each patient’s individual needs, whether surgically or non-surgically, to help restore their quality of life,” Dr. Bobba said. “I am thrilled to join a practice that embraces the same commitment to world-class, comprehensive care as I do.”

After completing his undergraduate years at Columbia University, Dr. Bobba obtained a Master’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University in Bioscience Regulatory Affairs. He then attended medical school at Drexel University in Philadelphia and went on to complete his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Detroit Medical Center. Most recently, he completed his spine fellowship at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Dr. Bobba says helping his patients return to the activities they love is what attracted him to this specialty.
