Dr. Ernest Braxton of Vail-Summit Orthopaedics talks about some of the exciting new advances in back, spine and neurosurgery that are helping preserve healthy and active lifestyles.

Dr. Braxton is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in brain tumors, neurotrauma, and complex and minimally-invasive spine surgery. Before joining Vail-Summit Orthopaedics, he was chief of neurosurgery at San Antonio Military Medical Center, the largest medical treatment facility with the highest acuity and volume of any hospital in our military health system. During his military service, he was the theater neurosurgeon in charge while deployed in Afghanistan where he contributed to the 96% survivability rate for incoming wounded. While working in a combat zone, he acquired extensive experience with blast and traumatic brain injuries, as well as complex spinal fractures resulting from high-energy improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
