I love medicine. And I love the ability to work with patients. I'm Rob Spinner. I'm one of the neurosurgeons at the Mayo Clinic. My area of interest is peripheral nerve surgery.

I think a few things are individualized when they come to see me. Number one is I'm committed to the patient. Number two is I'm passionate about what I do. This is my love-- peripheral nerve surgery and patient care. Third, I love discovery. I'm challenged by new things and new ways to improve patient care.

Somebody once told me you're lucky in life if you get to do what you want to do 20% of the time. I get to do what I want to do and I like to do all the time. And there's no better place in the world than to do it at the Mayo Clinic.

Onofrio, M.D. Professor of Neurosurgery as well as a professor of orthopedics and anatomy. He completed full residency programs in orthopedics and neurosurgery and a one-year peripheral nerve fellowship. He is board certified in both neurosurgery and orthopedics. He has served as the president of the American Society for Peripheral Nerve and the Sunderland Society (an international peripheral nerve study group).

His clinical focus includes:

  • Nerve entrapments
  • Peripheral nerve tumors (benign and malignant)
  • Injuries (including brachial plexus injuries)
