Dr. Tredway's Story
Dr. Trent Tredway is a neurosurgeon who specializes in spinal neurosurgery. He has special expertise in minimally invasive techniques and has published several articles on these recently developed techniques. After completing his residency in neurosurgery, he did a fellowship in spinal nuerosurgery at the University of Chicago. At the University of Washington, he has faculty appointments in the departments of Neurological Surgery and Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.
Among his clinical interests are complex spinal surgery, spinal cord tumors, and spinal cord injuries. His patient care philosophy is based on working with patients to develop a treatment plan after the specific medical problem is identified.
“It is important to derive a treatment plan based on clinical acumen and sound judgment,” Dr. Tredway says, “as well as with active patient input. With this philosophy, the patient and physician can choose the best course of treatment for the specific medical problem.”
When he isn’t caring for his patients, Dr. Tredway enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, and fishing.
