Neurosurgery One has expanded its services and its Denver neurosurgery team. Dr. Lloyd Mobley, a board-certified neurosurgeon, joined our team on Dec. 1, 2020. Dr. Mobley, formerly with Rocky Mountain Neurosurgery, will see patients in our two newest clinics:
Dr. Mobley will perform surgery primarily at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital and Parker Adventist Hospital, but remains on staff at Sky Ridge Medical Center and Swedish Hospital.
Dr. Mobley has more than 16 years of experience treating brain and spine tumors, degenerative spinal disorders, compression fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, and ulnar nerve compression. He specializes in advanced surgical procedures for the full range of spine and neurosurgical conditions. He also offers non-operative and minimally invasive treatment options for many common spine conditions, such as herniated disc.
“I definitely like to think outside the box,” says the Denver neurosurgeon. “When someone comes to me with back pain from spinal stenosis, I don’t automatically jump to spine fusion. I tend to perform less-invasive approaches more often than the average spine surgeon. That doesn’t always mean minimally invasive; sometimes that just means picking the right approach that’s not the biggest surgery that they might get elsewhere.”
Dr. Mobley credits his love for people and wanting to get to know his patients on a personal level for the ability to identify the best solution for each patient, whether surgical or non-operative.
“I love talking to my patients,” he says. “I enjoy their stories and getting to know them personally. It really helps me understand their situations and what will work best for them.”
Dr. Mobley completed his neurosurgical residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center before starting his own neurosurgery practice in Colorado in 2004. He has served as director of neurotrauma for a top neurosurgery program in Denver for five years and is a member of both the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
Outside the office, Dr. Mobley enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, ages 12 and 14. They’re active in Scouts and love to travel to new places whether locally, domestically or internationally. He also has recently become hooked on running and has participated in multiple marathons and half-marathons.
