In 2006, Dr. Flood merged two of his areas of expertise and became the director and a founding member of the Center for Spinal Disorders and Pediatric Orthopedics in Mesa, Arizona. In this capacity, he performed a wide range of spine surgery services for patients of all ages, as well as pediatric orthopedic surgery with a focus on spinal deformity and trauma. During this time, Dr. Flood also served as the director for the Pediatric Orthopedic Division of Banner Children’s Hospital in Mesa, Arizona.
