The Hunt Foundation

The Hunt Foundation

The Hunt Foundation was established in 2010 with the goal of taking significant steps in bringing equality to the field of medicine across international borders. It began with a mission to Africa to introduce advanced medical care, processes and techniques to developing countries in need of better standards of care and resources. At present, The Hunt Foundation has blueprints well under way for the Hunt Community Hospital, the Children’s Village and the Neuroscience Center in Ethiopia. These will bring more medical care to the people of Ethiopia than they have ever had before. In addition, Dr. Leonel Hunt and Dr. Gabriel Hunt traveled to Gabon, Africa to perform free brain and spine procedures to people who otherwise would not have the means to receive these life-saving procedures.

Ortho Vs. Neuro Spine Surgery

If you are considering spine surgery you may be wondering whether to consult an orthopedic spinal surgeon or a spinal neurosurgeon. Both Los Angeles spine specialists are more than capable of performing spine surgery. The best surgeon for your condition is ultimately the one you feel most comfortable with. However, there are differences and similarities in the two specialties which should be understood before searching for the best spinal surgeon Los Angeles can provide.

The Hunt Spine Difference

At Hunt Spine, we value our patients above anything else. Your improved health and quality of life is our goal. We know that each individual requires a different approach to treatment, and what worked for one patient won’t necessarily work for another. That’s why your consultation with one of our highly trained doctors will be extremely thorough. You will have the opportunity to ask whatever questions you may have and speak to the doctor about all your choices. Any decision you make should be based on you knowing the full facts of the situation and your condition, and we will do our best to help you make the best decision possible. This is what Dr. Leonel Hunt and Dr. Gabriel Hunt set out to do when they opened their practice, and this is why they are known to be some of the best orthopedic spinal surgeons Los Angeles has available.
