      Dr. Vedat Deviren is Professor at UCSF Medical Center Spine Center. As an Academic Faculty member he has maintained a passionate commitment to patient care. Dr Deviren as a spine surgeon specializes in the treatment of spinal disorders for both children and adults. This expertise allows him to have wide range of experience on difficult cases, which include cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, including spinal deformities such as adult scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, failed back surgeries and tumors. He well published in innovated spine surgery and transpedicular approach to previously unresectable cervical and cervical thoracic tumors. Renowned speaker at national and international conferences, speaking on topics including adult deformity, scoliosis measurement of outcomes in spine surgery, evaluation and management of spinal disorders, minimally invasive options, and advanced techniques in spine surgery.

      Dr Deviren teaches general and specific concepts that provide students, residents, fellows, and international scholars with skills for evaluating and investigating evidence based clinical care, outcome of spinal disorders, and biomechanical characteristics of spine and spinal instrumentation. His continue passion to both professionally and academically expand not only his knowledge but the knowledge of those students and mentorees who work with him. As an educator he reaches across boards to expand the knowledge globally by Co-Chairing the Practical Course in Advance Spine Techniques.

      Working to improve the educational value for resident, interns and fellows is one of Dr Deviren passions in addition to his desire to contribute to crossing geographical barriers to improve the expertise and skill level of other countries. He strives to impart his knowledge, innovation and guidance as a member of the UCSF Faculty both here and aboard. As UCSF peri-operative patient safety and OR/Block Committee member he uses his experiences and expertise to improve spinal surgery outcomes for patients by innovative the care direction and approach. These activities have provided an excellent opportunity for one-on-one collaboration and knowledge exchange which promotes UCSF’s mission of advancing health care worldwide.

      Throughout his career he has been actively involved in numerous research and education projects. He has served as a research mentor over the years. In clinical research, he has secured several grants, and led the development of an infrastructure for a clinical outcomes database; these projects have led to a significant number of publications. He continues to improve the productivity of our spine research and outcomes studies, which will ultimately translate to better and more cost-effective patient care.
