Advancing our profession

improving Clinical Efficacy

As Director of Spine Surgery Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Vira oversees both randomized trials and retrospective studies at the university. He dedicates considerable time to collecting and analyzing data on the efficacy of spinal surgeries for one sole purpose: to progressively improve the care for his patients. Below is a list of the numerous contributions Dr. Vira has made in the fields of spine, orthopaedic surgery, and healthcare policy.
