Specializes in diseases of the spine with a particular expertise for and interest in minimally invasive spine surgeries.

Dr. Vemuri specializes in the treatment of and procedures related to diseases of the spine. He received the Orthopaedic Student of the Year award for excellence in orthopaedics from Midwestern University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. Following his position as Chief Resident during his final year of residency in orthopaedic surgery, he went on to complete advanced training in orthopaedic and neurosurgical spine surgery. Dr. Vemuri completed this additional training at Louisville's Norton Leatherman Spine Center through their Spine Fellowship program.

While Dr. Vemuri is a spine surgeon, he is committed to exhausting all non-surgical treatment options before considering surgical intervention. His primary objective is to help patients get back to enjoying their lives through restoring function from painful spinal conditions. His interest in minimally invasive surgeries is due in large part to increased chances for reduced blood loss, less tissue damage, and a faster recovery time for his patients.

In addition to his medical degree, Dr. Vemuri also has a bachelor's in Cello performance from Lawrence University Conservatory of Music and a master's degree in Cello performance from the world renowned Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. He also enjoys maintaining an active lifestyle through activities such as running, skiing, hiking, traveling, golfing, and cooking.
