About Dr. Reiter
Dr. Michael Reiter, a Board-Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at Neurosurgery of St. Louis (NSL), is a St. Louis native who went to Parkway Central High School. While pursuing his undergraduate degree at Indiana University, he suffered an injury as an offensive lineman on the football team, inspiring him to pursue a career in medicine.
The University of Missouri School of Medicine was the starting point for his medical career. Continuing his pursuit of expertise in orthopedic surgery, he embarked on a rigorous Orthopedic Surgery Residency at the University of Colorado. During this residency, he honed his complex spine surgery and trauma skills. After completing his residency, Dr. Reiter furthered his specialization by undertaking a spine fellowship at Washington University, focusing on complex spine deformity surgery. This intensive training took place at Barnes Jewish Hospital.
He educates patients about their spinal disorders, starting with nonoperative options and resorting to surgery only when necessary. Being part of a team is extremely important to Dr. Reiter, and his orthopedic surgery deformity background brings a different perspective to the team at Neurosurgery of St. Louis.
He enjoys spending time with his wife Erin and two daughters, exercising, skiing, hiking, watching the Indiana Hoosiers and Mizzou Tigers, and traveling.
