William H. Dillin, MD
Spine Surgery & Spine Medicine
Evidence-based medicine has been the cornerstone of Dr. Dillin’s education during his spine surgery fellowship in Neurosurgery and Orthopaedic Surgery and the format for his subsequent clinical spine practice.
An evidence-based practice features the best available information translated into patient care. Critical thinking in medicine, and the combined infusion of traditionally designed spine studies and the data mining models of machine learning, create the current state of spine knowledge. Evidence-based practice is devoted to the flexible adaptation of clinical spine medicine as the science evolves.
As the aviation world has modeled through recurrent pilot training, practicing what one knows and acquiring new skills are cornerstones to offering patients the best options. For over 35 years, Dr. Dillin has traveled to refine and acquire these skills. His particular interest is spine surgery simulation, not only as demonstrated in cadaver procedure practice, but represented in the new VR-Haptic-Gaming Computer configurations. Yes, it is now possible to sit at home in the United States and operate in London.
Since July 1985, Dr. Dillin has been exclusively devoted to clinical spine, interventional spine, and spine surgery practice. He has performed over 7000 spine operations/interventions and performs a wide range of technical spine procedures.
Dr. Dillin embraces his mentors, Dr. Fred Simeone in spine neurosurgery and Dr. Richard Rothman in orthopedic spine surgery. Years may have passed, but the influence of great teachers never disappears.
Dr. Dillin was a partner at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic for over 35 years and an associate of the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute.
