Welcome to Alder Grove Orthopedic Spine

Meet Dr. Vernon:  Alder Grove Physician and Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Brian A. Vernon, MD was trained in the latest spinal surgery techniques at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  He and his staff bring world class disc replacement technology and spinal surgery to Northern Utah.  Dr. Vernon grew up in Utah, and has practiced spinal surgery in Cache Valley since 2013.  His philosophy is that spinal surgery should be a last resort, and that many people may get better with conservative care.  When surgery is recommended, he seeks to perform the least invasive, most conservative option that is most likely to help solve his patient's problem.
