Douglas Mathews, MD, FACS

Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist


Hello. My name is Douglas Mathews. I was raised in the Southern California area and have been a resident of Tennessee since 1987. After completing my undergraduate degree at UCLA, I spent 10 years at Vanderbilt University where I attained my medical degree and completed my residency in neurosurgery. I have served as an expert in my field for more than 20 years in the Middle Tennessee area. I enjoy helping my community with cranial and spinal disorders with special interest in minimally invasive techniques and the treatment of complex spinal disorders that occur from trauma, congenital, degenerative and neoplastic disease.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, golfing and spending time with my family in the South and on the West Coast.
