EmergeOrtho Welcomes Spine Surgeon: Dr. Jason Zook

EmergeOrtho would like to welcome Dr. Jason Zook to our team! Dr. Jason Zook is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon joining EmergeOrtho’s Foothills Region (formerly Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists) in Burke county.

Dr. Zook’s interests range from minimally invasive spine surgeries, such as decompressions and fusions to adult reconstructive surgery of the spine. He employs the latest cutting-edge techniques but maintains a focus on long-standing principles of surgical technique. He utilizes a holistic approach to care for neck and back disorders, focusing on the incorporation of multi-modality care to ensure the best outcomes for his patients.

Dr. Zook is a valuable addition to our team of orthopaedic surgeons. He looks forward to working with Blue Ridge HealthCare to develop a Spine Center of Excellence in Burke County. Dr. Zook is currently practicing in Morganton and Valdese and will begin seeing patients in Marion this fall.

He recently served a tour of duty in Kandahar, Afghanistan, where he was the Department Head of Orthopaedic Surgery at the NATO Role 3  Hospital. While there he performed over 200 surgeries on victims of blasts, gunshots and a wide variety of other injuries.
