Happy Birthday to an amazing Spine Surgeon!

The medical staff, service teams and patients at NAO wish Dr. Eamonn Mahoney a very wonderful birthday! We asked this board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeon what drives his need to care for patients so compassionately, and how he got interested in becoming a back and neck surgeon. Here’s what he said:

I’ve always enjoy working with my patients to shape the most effective non-operative or operative treatment plan, together. A specialist in minimally invasive techniques,  I value innovation and the benefits they provide my patients. If surgery is the best option, I’ll always opt for a minimally invasive procedure to allow for faster heal time, with less pain.

I earned my Doctorate of Medicine from New York University School of Medicine and for residency, I chose Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT, because of the prestige surrounding the school. I chose to extend my education by completing a Spine Fellowship, which provided me with additional specialized training in back and neck care.

I feel a tremendous connection caring for the people who live in Flagstaff and the surrounding communities, and I am fortunate to be a part of such a remarkable group of orthopaedic specialists at NAO. My goal is goal is to return patients to a healthy, active lifestyle and give them the personal attention they’d expect from the highest standards of orthopaedic excellence and skill.

On a personal note, Flagstaff is my playground! I am very happy spending time outdoors with my wife and new, young daughter.  
Eamonn Mahoney, M.D.
