In addition to being a fellowship-trained orthopedic spinal surgeon in practice since 1994, Dr. Dalenberg has extensive deposition and trial experience as an orthopedic expert witness.  As an expert witness, his mission is to bring science to the courtroom by doing a thorough, unbiased evaluation of every case from both the defense and plaintiff’s points of view, and to provide the science to back up his opinions.  He adheres to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Standards of Professionalism on Orthopaedic Expert Opinion and Testimony, and has signed an AAOS Expert Witness Affirmation Statement.
