Dr. Carll is the newest physician at Texas Spine Consultants, LLP, joining us in 2008. He completed a one-year spine fellowship under the tutelage of Drs. Andrew Park and Bob Viere. Dr. Carll came to Dallas with an already-impressive academic background. As an undergraduate at The Citadel, he finished first in his class. He then received his medical degree cum laude in 2003 from the University of Florida where he was also inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha National Honor Society. After graduating, Dr. Carll stayed at the University of Florida for five more years to continue his training with a special focus in minimally invasive spine surgery. He has already passed Part I of his board certification with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is in the process of completing the certification procedure. Dr. Carll has been honored and recognized with the 2011 Patients Choice Award.
