Mark Giovanini, M.D. is from Portland, Oregon and received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at the University of Oregon. Dr. Giovanini then received a fellowship from the American Heart Association to do basic science research at Oregon Health Sciences University. At the completion of his research, he attended medical school at Oregon Health Sciences University where he received his M.D.
Dr. Giovanini’s neurosurgical training was completed at the University of Florida at Shands Hospital where he studied under premier neurosurgeons Dr. Albert Rhoton, Dr. Aurther Day, and Dr. Richard Fessler. While at Shands, Dr. Giovanini developed research models for spinal cord injury, which eventually led to the first spinal cord transplant in humans. He published several articles on spinal cord injury and neural transplantation with Dr. Doug Anderson, chief of the Neuroscience Department at the University of Florida.
Minimally Invasive Spine (MIS) surgery became a primary focus of Dr. Giovanini while in residency training under Dr. Richard Fessler, a leading pioneer of MIS. Throughout his practice, Dr. Giovanini has continually promoted and helped develop many aspects of MIS. He has been a consultant for many of the major spine companies to teach MIS techniques both to Neurosurgeons and Orthopaedic Surgeons around the World.
