Ejovi Ughwanogho, M.D.


Dr. Ughwanogho is a board certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in adult and pediatric deformity (scoliosis/kyphosis); cervical, thoracic and lumbar degenerative conditions; and spine trauma, including osteoporotic compression fractures.

He believes accurate diagnoses and identification of a patient’s pain causing pathology allows for the most effective treatment of such pathologies. Consequently he focuses on diligent assessment of the patient’s presenting complaints, history then correlating these findings with appropriate diagnostic images.

He employs a multimodal approach in the management of his patients, with use of non-surgical and surgical options. When surgery is indicated, he uses the most efficacious and safest techniques to achieve a patient's goals, including use of classical surgical approaches, more less invasive techniques, or motion sparing approaches.

He obtained his medical degree from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in 2006, after which he went on to further his training. He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, and received dual fellowship training in adult orthopedic spine and spine deformity at Texas Back Institute in 2013, gaining experience in complex deformity and revision spine surgery.

He is board-certified through the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). Licensed to practice medicine in Arizona. In addition to having authored several articles and book chapters, he is a member of American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the North American Spine Society.

Among his numerous accolades, Dr. Ughwanogho is the recipient of Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2015, 2016, 2018, 2020), Patients’ Choice Award (2018, 2020), and On-Time Doctor Award (2020).
