Regis W. Haid Jr., MD, FAANS, received his undergraduate degree in 1978 from the University of Notre Dame with majors in philosophy and theology, and a minor in classical literature. He received his MD at West Virginia University in 1982, where he also completed his neurosurgical residency in 1988. In 1986, Dr. Haid completed a fellowship with Joseph Charles Maroon, MD, FAANS(L) in Pittsburgh, Penn.
From 1988-89 he was a clinical instructor at the University of Florida, where he also completed a one-year fellowship in spine surgery. He joined the faculty at Emory University in Atlanta in 1993, as an associate professor, and was promoted to professor in 2001. Currently, Dr. Haid is the medical director of the Piedmont Spine Center and Neuroscience Service Line at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta.
Dr. Haid has served on the editorial and review boards of several leading journals. His research interests include spinal reconstruction techniques, with a number of patents and implants concerning such techniques as cervical lateral mass plating, anterior cervical plating, posterior, anterior, lateral and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion techniques, cervical arthroplasty, lateral lumbar fusion and posterior thoraco-lumbar instrumentation.
Dr. Haid is on the board of directors of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), as well as the Neurosurgical Research and Educational Foundation (NREF) and the Lumbar Spine Research Society. Dr. Haid is also an active member and leader within several professional neurosurgical and spinal societies, including the AANS, Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), Neurosurgical Society of America (NSA) and the Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS).
"The new NREF is vital to maintain and grow our independence as physicians. Contributors to the NREF now have the choice to selectively donate to their areas of interest. My personal contributions are focused on clinical outcomes in spinal surgery. Our goal is to enhance accessibility for our patients to receive the optimal treatment. Neither insurance companies nor the government should dictate whom we operate on, or how we can elect to treat our patients. Only by providing value with effective comparisons in outcomes and costs will neurosurgeons be able to direct our patients' care."
