Julio J. Jauregui, M.D. is a highly skilled spine surgeon dedicated to providing exceptional care for patients with spine conditions. Dr. Jauregui serves as a pediatric and adult spine surgeon in the Department of Orthopedics at the University of Maryland and the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

His expertise includes a wide range of spinal conditions focusing on complex spine surgery in both children and adults for the treatment of complex deformities of the spine including scoliosis, kyphosis, flat back syndrome, as well as other major spinal imbalances. He is also an expert at managing complex spine trauma, revision spine surgery, as well as both primary and metastatic tumors of the spine.

He believes in a patient-centered approach, working with physiotherapists, internists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, radiologists, physiatrists, and pediatricians. He strives for shared decision making with his patients and explores the least invasive options before considering surgery as the last resort. For patients that ultimately require surgery, Dr. Jauregui aims to treat patients with the most effective and safe technique tailored to each patient to minimize complications, improve recovery time, and optimize outcomes.

He completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Maryland and completed fellowship training in both spine surgery and complex spine deformity at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Jauregui’s prolific academic career includes publishing over 160 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 16 book chapters, and he has been cited over 3,000 times.
