Trust between a surgeon and patient is earned and is of the upmost importance. My goal is to get my patients back to doing the activities they enjoy with the people they care about in the safest way possible.
Dr. Armaghani received his fellowship training in adult spinal surgery at the Emory University School of Medicine, widely considered one of the top spine fellowships in the country. He is board eligible by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. As a spine surgeon specializing in degenerative spine conditions, he has a particular interest in the causes and treatments of neck pain and back pain, although he treats all spinal disorders. Dr. Armaghani uses a nonsurgical approach and minimally invasive techniques with the goal of returning his patients back to enjoying the activities they love, in the safest way possible.
Dr. Armaghani was born and raised in Gainesville, FL where he was accepted into an accelerated undergraduate/medical school program at the University of Florida. Following medical school, he completed his residency at Vanderbilt University where he was named chief resident and was granted awards for his research. Dr. Armaghani has co-authored over twenty-five publications and has delivered presentations at national meetings on topics that range from post-operative pain management to the treatment of patients with diabetes. His most recent research interests include identifying factors that influence outcomes following surgery and minimizing complications.
Trust between he and his patients are of the utmost importance to Dr. Armaghani. His approach with his patients consists of easy to understand conversations focusing on maximizing their improvement with conservative or surgical methods, while at the same time minimizing risk.
Dr. Armaghani enjoys cycling and college football, specifically his alma mater the University of Florida.
Dr. Armaghani is an amazing surgeon with the best communication skills I’ve ever seen as well as his surgical techniques and bedside manner. I had to have an extremely risky surgery on March 14, 2017 after a failed fusion. I’ve never felt so comfortable with my physician and upcoming surgery before. He was very helpful and offered a great deal of support for post-operative pain management and ongoing care. He’s a lifesaver!
After suffering with chronic back pain for years, I was lucky enough to find Dr. Armaghani. Before and after surgery he and his staff treated me like an old friend. He made no promises because I had let it go for so long it could be tricky, the day after surgery I no longer had pain in my legs. Four weeks later, I tied my shoes without help for the first time in fifteen years. I had my six week check up yesterday and was treated like we had been buddies our whole life! Great Dr. and staff!
“This guy can’t me old enough to know what he is doing”, I said to myself when he walked in. Boy did he prove me wrong. He correctly diagnosed a cyst on my spine that other doctors had missed. He did the surgery he confidently told me would relieve the chronic, debilitating pain I had been experiencing for over a year. Six weeks after the surgery and I’m playing some of the best golf of my life! The scariest thing about the whole procedure was that Dr. A was a “Florida Gator”. I didn’t tell him I was a LSU Tiger Graduate until after the surgery. Now he and Tim Tebow are tied for all time greatest Gators!
“I was experiencing high level pain in my lower back and shooting down my right leg. Dr. Armaghani and his office staff headed by Vanessa showed only top level professionalism and courtesy to assess and identify my medical diagnosis. Dr. Armaghani scheduled the quickest surgery available and performed a skilled and successful surgery procedure to eliminate the severe pain that I was experiencing. He has a terrific bed side manor that mirrors his medical and surgical expertise. I would highly recommend Dr. Armaghani! I stand proudly to call him my doctor.”
