Scott Lollis, MD is a neurosurgeon at the University of Vermont Medical Center and assistant professor at the Larner College of Medicine at UVM. He treats conditions such as spinal stenosis, spinal degeneration, spinal tumors, fractures and spondylolisthesis.
Dr. Lollis’ research includes spinal fractures, pre-hospital transport of critically ill neurosurgical patients and intra-operative navigation, which is a tool that gives surgeons real-time access to a patient’s diagnostic imaging while in the operating room.
Dr. Lollis believes in addition to operating, a surgeon's most important role is helping the patient to make an informed decision about whether or not to have surgery. He takes whatever time is necessary to understand his patient’s mindset, to fully discuss all options, operative as well as non-operative, and to answer whatever questions he or she might have.
