Boca Raton, Fla.-based iRise Spine and Joint has appointed Michael Weiss, DO, chief of surgery and CMO.

Dr. Weiss was former chair of surgery at the now defunct Tampa-based Laser Spine Institute and chief of spine surgery at the practice's Scottsdale, Ariz., center.

For more than a decade, he was responsible for managing Laser Spine Institute's surgical operations and training.

Dr. Weiss will carry a regular surgical caseload at iRise, focusing on the latest techniques in minimally invasive spine surgery. 

He will also help advance the group's processes and procedures in the clinic and operating room and oversee the team of 13 physicians.

"Dr. Weiss joining iRise further enhances our goal of providing comprehensive care and treatment to those with spine and orthopedic injuries and conditions," CEO Ryan Fulcher said in an April 14 news release. "His unrelenting commitment to making the lives of his patients better through a personalized approach to minimally invasive surgery perfectly aligns with the surgical side of our practice."
