Dr. Massoud is a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon.  After receiving his undergraduate degree from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Penn., Dr. Massoud graduated from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey.  Upon completion of his general surgery internship, Dr. Massoud undertook an orthopedic surgery residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in New Jersey.  Dr. Massoud then chose to advance his skills in spine surgery by accepting a fellowship at the Texas Back Institute, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious multidisciplinary spine clinics.  During his fellowship, Dr. Massoud trained with seven different spine surgeons who were involved in the development of cutting-edge technologies. He also assisted in performing surgeries utilizing innovative devices under FDA supervision.

Trained in open and minimally invasive spine surgery at the Texas Back Institute, Dr. Massoud has unique experience in both open and endoscopic techniques. After starting private practice in 1998, Dr. Massoud performed various open procedures including laminectomies, micro-discectomies, fusions, fracture repair, and tumor surgery.  In 2006, he discovered the tremendous advantages of endoscopic laser-assisted spinal techniques. In order to advance his surgical skills, Dr. Massoud traveled to England to further his training with Dr. Martin Knight, a pioneer in the field of endoscopic spine surgery. Later he received additional surgical training with Dr. Sebastian Ruetten, Head of Spine Surgery at St. Anna Hospital in Herne, Germany. He continually collaborates with top surgeons globally to develop advanced techniques and further hone his skills.
