“I believe in solutions that give the body what it needs to heal.”
Dr. Zeshan Hyder is a pioneer in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery and renowned for his skill in helping patients return to life before their back and neck pain. A board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Hyder graduated cum laude from the University of Illinois, received his medical degree from Midwestern University and completed his fellowship at the Texas Back Institute in Plano. He trained at many of Chicago’s top hospitals, including Advocate Christ Hospital, Northwestern Memorial Hospital and University of Chicago’s Weiss Memorial Hospital.
"Even the smallest innovations can mean the world to my patients."
From Dr. Hyder’s commitment to patient-first care came TrueMIS, a minimally invasive, muscle-sparing surgical technique that minimizes blood loss while allowing for faster surgeries and quicker recovery times. By avoiding a midline incision along the spine, TrueMIS protects the multifidus muscle, one of the major stabilizers in the back. Dr. Hyder performs every procedure with the same hand-picked surgical team of seven experienced professionals. Fully trained in TrueMIS, this team operates with precision and efficiency—all with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

Mike’s warm personality and deep knowledge of anatomy make him a vital member of the team. He is committed to improving patient quality of life and focuses on understanding a patient’s symptoms to help determine the next step in their healing process.
Dr. Hyder’s passion for progress has led him to seek constant improvements in his surgical techniques and in patient care. He lectures at events nationally and internationally, sharing his TrueMIS techniques with fellow surgeons and leaders in the orthopedics field. His hands-on teaching, through labs and observation of live surgery, works to advance spine surgery and bring minimally invasive options to patients around the world. As both a physician and an educator, Dr. Hyder works to further patient health by participating in studies that can offer patients even more pain relief options.
