Dr. Hirschl performs minimally invasive and complex spine surgery of cervical thoracic and lumbar. Dr. Hirschl is also able to do open and endovascular treatments of aneurysms, as well as trauma to the brain and spine. He can also treat and remove spinal cord and brain tumors.

Dr. Hirschl earned his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine, where he also served his residency in neurological surgery and completed a fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery/interventional neuroradiology. He served on the faculty at Ohio State as a clinical instructor and director of endovascular neurosurgery.

Additionally, he was named “One of the 62 Spine Surgeon Inventors to Know” by Becker’s Spine Review in 2012 for inventing several surgical instrumentation devices.

Dr. Hirschl has been published in multiple journals, including the Journal of Pediatric Neurology, the Journal of Neurosurgery, and the Journal of Robotic Surgery. He has also authored several book  chapters, including Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology published in  2015 and Endovascular Technique for Tumor Embolization in Youmans Neurological Surgery.

Orlando Health gave me hope when I had almost none. I received life-changing surgery that took away my back pain and gave me my life back. I am so grateful.
