There's a reason that people in pain travel from far and wide - even across state lines - to the little town of Newhall. The incentive: To be treated by Dr. Kapil Moza, a renowned spine surgeon with a coveted reputation.

Trained in the neurosurgical specialties of minimally-invasive spine surgery, lumbar spinal stenosis, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms, cervical laminoplasty, Gamma Knife radiosurgery, cerebrovascular disease, spinal instability, cervical/lumbar disc disease, artificial disc replacement, anterior cervical discetomy, spine fractures, brain and spinal tumors, neuro-oncology, skull-base surgery and Chiari malformation and more, Dr. Moza is one of the highest-trained and sought after neurosurgeons in the state.

In fact, on well-respected patient review sites like and, Dr. Moza comes out as the top spine surgeon in the region and is ranked in the top 10 in California.

A quick peek at his lengthy reviews and it's easy to see why. The neurosurgeon specializes in minimally-invasive spine surgery using innovative techniques and technologies that can significantly reduce incision size, the need for muscle stripping and soft-tissue retraction.

But that's not his only quality that has propelled him to the top. Dr. Moza is an expert in treating his patients as unique individuals deserving of his time and skill.

Time and again, you'll see a common theme in his patients' post-op commentary: "Dr. Moza never makes you feel rushed," says one. "I was pleased to find out that I met with the doctor himself at each of my appointments," says another. "He's kind, compassionate and so good at what he does - he's the best spine surgeon, hands down," say nearly everyone who's met the man.

But personality and a stellar bedside manner can only take you so far as a medical professional. In short, a spine surgeon is only as good as his patients' recoveries.

That's where the quantitative measures matter - and Dr. Moza's are hands-down impressive. Post-op infection rates are near zero - and significantly lower than the region and state averages. His patients' recovery times are lightning fast, too, often weeks earlier than other practitioners who utilize more invasive techniques and longer-surgery-time methods.

"Dr. Moza is the HIGHEST-RANKED SPINE SURGEON in the region for a reason: his patient recovery rates are significantly faster, and infection rates remarkably lower, than other doctors. Couple that with a warm bedside manner and lots more unrushed time with the doctor than patients expect, and you start to see why his numbers on
medical review sites are THROUGH THE ROOF."
Still hesitant? New advancements in the field of spine surgery need your attention. Take artificial disc replacement, for example - now considered a valuable alternative to spinal fusion. No bone grafts, no metal plates and screws... These prosthetic devices are inserted between the vertebrae to take the place of your own spinal disc. These medical marvels preserve your mobility through your vertebral segment. The first neurosurgeon in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties to implant a cervical artificial disc replacement, Dr. Moza proudly recounts that - without exception - his patients now enjoy their previous levels of activity, thanks to the joint-like design and natural-disc alignment.

One of the highest-trained neurosurgeons in So Cal, Dr. Moza still exhausts non-surgical options prior to spine surgery. Comprehensive care is his guiding philosophy; he evaluates each patient as a unique individual to ensure that more conservative, non-surgical treatments are attempted prior to surgery.

By connecting with his patients and gaining a full understanding of their medical history, Dr. Moza ensures that he can carefully reach a truly-accurate diagnosis, referring to trusted pain management programs or physical therapy when possible. If these treatments prove ineffective, then surgery is discussed. There are exceptions to this, of course, like when a person displays an acute motor function loss. Unfortunately, these patients most often require quick spine-surgery treatments to prevent any additional loss of movement.

No matter what your needs, you should know that the field of spine surgery is rapidly evolving - for the better. This is an exciting time. Physiological function restorations can happen; in fact, in Dr. Moza's practice, they do happen - every day! The way one can treat degenerative spine disease has evolved.
