Dr. Todd W. Peters is a fellowship trained orthopedic and spine surgeon with a specialty interest and focus in minimally invasive spine surgery, minimally invasive joint replacements, and regenerative biologics.

Dr. Peters returns to Orange County after ten years in Vail, Colorado, serving some of the most prominent athletes in the world. He is recognized as a national leader, innovator, and instructor of his fellow physicians in minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Dr. Peters brings his vast experience and expertise in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery as a Founding Member of the ONE Brain & Spine Center. Since less than 10% of spine and neck injuries require surgery, Dr. Peters is dedicated to the “VIP Patient Experience” including a comprehensive approach of education, patient history, and necessary lab imaging (X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans). When surgery is the best solution, Dr. Peters emphasizes the benefits to MIS, such as small incisions and operating in a smaller environment, which reduce tissue and muscle damage. MIS requires a surgeon highly familiar with the anatomy, techniques and surgical procedure. As an expert in MIS, the patients of Dr. Peters are afforded the benefits of a less disruptive technique, with statistically shorter recovery time, less pain, decreased occurrence of infections, and quality long term outcomes.

Dr. Peters continues to be involved with the medical community, publishing peer-review articles and conducting educational presentations in the area of orthopedic, and specifically, minimally invasive spine surgery. He is also a nationally recognized leader and physician instructor for the newest spine surgery techniques, performing procedures ranging from simple endoscopic surgeries to advanced deformity corrections. Dr. Peters teaches other doctors.

Dr. Peters is committed to research and advancement of his field, dedicating significant time in research labs developing new procedures and medical technologies. His advancements in minimally invasive hip replacement surgeries have led to minimizing pain and recovery time while maximizing function and range of motion. Currently, Dr. Peters is focused on MIS disc innovations and next-generation orthopedic products using human protein and growth factor materials for bone and tissue regeneration.

Dr. Peters is a member of the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (SMISS), North American Spine Society (NASS), American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the Colorado Medical Society, as well as the Western Orthopaedic Society.

Born at Camp Pendleton, CA, Dr. Peters received his undergraduate degree from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He completed a general surgery internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at Allegheny University – Hahnemann Hospital, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, followed with a spine surgery fellowship at the University of Maryland – Shock Trauma – Baltimore, Maryland.
