"The most satisfying part of my work is having the opportunity to improve my patient’s quality of life, either through conservative modalities or with surgical intervention.”

 

A. David Tahernia, M.D. is a board-certified, fellowship trained orthopedic spinal surgeon. He joined Desert Orthopedic Center in 2003 where he is the Director of the Comprehensive Spine Center.

Raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dr. Tahernia comes from a medical family: his father, a pediatric cardiologist; and his mother, a registered nurse. He attended the University of Tulsa and graduated magna cum laude. He was honored by the University of Tulsa as Man of the Year. He is also a charter member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Dr. Tahernia earned his medical degree, completed his internship and residency at the University of Pennsylvania. It was there that his interest in spinal surgery evolved: “I found every facet of spinal surgery to be fascinating, from the complex anatomy, to the wide variety of disease processes.” During his time at the University of Pennsylvania, he also received the Stanley Chung Award for Excellence in Orthopedic Research.

Dr. Tahernia completed his fellowship in spinal surgery at the University of Colorado, and has coauthored numerous articles and delivered regional and national presentations. He is actively involved in several clinical research projects, evaluation cutting-edge treatments for a variety of spinal disorders.

Commenting on his specialty, Dr. Tahernia says: “The field of spinal surgery is extremely rewarding and continually evolving. The most satisfying part of my work is having the opportunity to improve my patient’s quality of life, either through conservative modalities or with surgical intervention.”
