I am dedicated to providing exceptional patient care focused on individual needs and a return to a pain free and active lifestyle.

Dr. Osburn is an American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS) board eligible neurosurgeon. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and raised in Cape Girardeau, a small town in southeast Missouri. He returned to Kansas City to complete a six-year combined undergraduate and medical degree program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Dr. Osburn completed his residency in Neurological Surgery at the University of South Florida, where he was honored with the Fernando L. Vale Golden Apple Resident Teacher of the Year award. He completed two enfolded fellowships during his residency: One in Complex and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery at Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, Washington, and the other in Spinal Deformity and Complex Spine Surgery at the University of South Florida.

Dr. Osburn cares for neurological disorders of the brain and spine, specializing in complex spinal pathologies and minimally invasive spine surgery. He treats spinal tumors, degenerative spinal disorders, spinal deformities, and cranial/spine trauma.

He is a member of the North American Spine Society (NASS), the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS).

Dr. Osburn is committed to providing exceptional patient centered care. He believes understanding the individual patient’s underlying pathology is the key to achieving optimal outcomes and improving the patient’s quality of life.

In his spare time, Dr. Osburn enjoys traveling with his wife, Chloe. He also enjoys trying new restaurants and food, fishing, and boating. He is an avid fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Tampa Bay Lightning.


Very informative and professional. Took time to explain my options moving forward. I highly recommend him.

This doctor and team resemble a factory — in a good way! Very efficient getting an appointment, then check-in, X-rays, and seeing the PA. A few minutes later, Dr. O. came in. Nice, friendly Midwesterner. A great people person. He was thorough in the X-ray review and treatment options. They often say if you go to a surgeon, they’ll say you need surgery. He didn’t. He offered up several options to relieve my back pain. If six weeks doesn’t resolve it, we’ll return for a review. Loved this place and this doctor.

Dr. Osburn was knowledgeable, professional, kind, and caring. I am a retired critical care nurse and highly recommend his expertise. All staff members were great, including Hansel P.A., Chelsea, front desk, and x-ray. Thanks for your care.

Great doctor. Takes the time to explain every step of the process regarding your health. From dealing with back pain for years, Dr. Osburn made me feel comfortable as he explained my options to get me on course to live life again.

Dr. Osburn is very thorough and patient. He answers all my questions even when I’m interrupting him with more questions. He listens to my concerns and explains things in a way I understand. He seems very knowledgeable, and I highly recommend him.
