Research Interests

Basic Science: The study of spinal fusion in animal models. Dr. Gupta has studied fusion models in several species and various conditions which enhance and inhibit fusion including bone morphogenetic proteins 2 and 7. Biomechanics of spine constructs for use in treatment of spinal deformity.

Clinical Science: Clinical outcomes of various techniques used in the treatment of spinal deformity including multiple rods for osteotomies.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Gupta specializes in adult and pediatric spine surgery, with a focus on complex spinal reconstructive surgery for treatment of all spinal deformities of the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions. He has over 23 years of experience in treating spinal deformities such as scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis and Flatback syndrome. Dr. Gupta also specializes in spinal revision surgery and spinal tumors.
