Orthopaedic Surgery Specializing in Disorders of the Spine
Along with Dr. Roy Ashford, Dr. Costigan is a Director of the Congress Orthopaedic Associates for Spinal Surgery, Pasadena’s premier comprehensive spinal care center. The entire staff at the surgery center offers unparalleled patient care and service in a personalized environment. The ongoing patient follow up care extends beyond surgery and hospital stay for optimum recovery.
Following the completion of his orthopaedic training, Dr. Costigan completed a year-long fellowship in spinal surgery at the University of Southern California’s Center for Orthopaedic Spinal Surgery. With his extensive experience, he has developed a comprehensive program for the treatment of spinal disorders and pain. Although he is exceptionally trained in the surgical solutions of spinal disease, Dr. Costigan emphasizes the non-operative management of many spinal conditions. At our Spinal Center, we coordinate the efforts and input of a comprehensive team of spinal professionals, including the spinal surgeon, physical therapist, spinal injections and minimally invasive techniques to offer a complete range of treatment options and modalities.
Dr. Costigan is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the USC School of Medicine and also travels internationally on humanitarian medical missions to India, Africa, and Peru performing spinal surgery on the less-privileged around the world.
