Raymond Baule, M.D., is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in
minimally invasive spinal surgery. Prior to joining NSPC, he was an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine. Dr. Baule has over 25 years of experience in treating a variety of neck and back disorders, as well as brain tumors.
A Long Island native, Dr. Baule received his medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY. He completed a Neurosurgery residency at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. In his final year of training, he was named Chief Resident of Loma Linda University Hospital.
In addition, Dr. Baule completed a fellowship in Complex Spinal
Reconstruction at the University of Buffalo/Erie County Medical Center, in Buffalo, NY. He also completed a fellowship in Neurotrauma at Elmhurst Hospital Medical Center, Elmhurst, NY.
Dr. Baule performs advanced neurological and spinal procedures using cutting-edge techniques, cervical artificial disc replacement, percutaneous procedures for stenosis and nerve compression, and percutaneous procedures for more complex fusions. He also performs kyphoplasty, which is a minimally invasive procedure for spinal compression fractures that requires only a small needle to repair the fracture.
His personal medical philosophy is, when applicable, to use minimally invasive surgical procedures to minimize hospital stay and downtime. He implements these procedures for a wide array of spine afflictions, fractures, and nerve entrapment conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
