Dr. Charles Theofilos, Neurosurgeon and Spine Surgeon

Neurosurgeon and Spine Surgeon in West Palm Beach, FL

As a Palm Beach Spine Specialist and one of Palm Beach & St. Lucie County’s top neurosurgery practices, the Spine Center offers exceptional spine concierge services. Dr. Theofilos was recently voted 2018 Top Doctors in Palm Beach County by his peers. The Center also represents the forefront of cutting-edge spinal health, where prevention is key to exploring and achieving the best possible outcome for all patients. The Spine Center delivers state-of-the-art treatment under the guidance of board-certified neurosurgeon and founder, Dr. Charles S. Theofilos. Dr. Theofilos is a leading spine surgeon provider of the most comfortable and effective surgical, minimally invasive, and non-surgical treatment options for a full range of cervical and spinal ailments, including stem cell therapy and artificial disc replacement. Dr. Theofilos is one of just a handful of select neurosurgeons and back doctors in the country utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology for the treatment of back and neck pain, and the potential regeneration of spinal discs, using stem cells. This innovative three-step process may provide stem cells a better fighting chance to regrow cartilage in the often hostile environment of a damaged spinal disc.

Dr. Theofilos has enjoyed a distinguished career as a pioneer in developing innovative surgical techniques and devices. During his tenure as Chairman of Neurosurgery and Chairman of Cranial and Spinal Surgery at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL, he made medical history performing the revolutionary BAK Interbody Fusion surgery live on the internet, expanding the training paradigm for hundreds of physicians who viewed this landmark procedure. In addition, Dr. Theofilos was recently recognized by the Consumer Research Council of America and bestowed the honor of being named one of “America’s Top Surgeons for Neurosurgery.” Dr. Theofilos was among a field of 20 top neuro and orthopedic surgeons throughout the country chosen to participate in the groundbreaking Flexicore and Cervicore Intervertebral Artificial Disc studies comparing the clinical outcome of disc replacement versus traditional spinal fusion. Dr. Theofilos has invented and patented numerous spinal products used in Spinal Surgeries throughout the world, including the Uni-T Pedicle Screw System, Santorini Corpectomy Fusion Cage and Chesapeake Offset and Inline Stand Alone Fusion System.

Dr. Theofilos is a widely sought after educator and lecturer and a regularly featured guest and medical commentator on all three major television networks for his expertise in state-of-the-art neurosurgical techniques.
