Dr. Logan Helland is a fellowship-trained complex and reconstructive spine surgeon. He earned both his MD and a BS in chemistry from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, NE. He completed his residency in neurological surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City; and a fellowship in complex and reconstructive spine surgery at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, IL.
