Dr. Mahoney is a board certified, fellowship-trained Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in Spine, with more than 12 years surgical experience. An expert in the Spine and Pain Center at NAO, he is fast becoming a leader in minimally invasive back and neck surgery in Northern Arizona. Utilizing technology and techniques currently considered state-of-the-art in spine surgery, and with an appreciation for innovation, Dr. Mahoney practices approaches to surgical spine interventions, such as minimally invasive fusion using a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) technique; and Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) for lateral spine surgery. Dr. Mahoney enhances the quality of spine care available in Flagstaff by performing these less-invasive back and neck surgeries. Dr. Mahoney’s goal is always to treat non-surgically, if possible.
Mahoney earned his Doctorate of Medicine from New York University School of Medicine, following a bachelor’s in Biological Sciences from Fordham University, New York City. After his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the prestigious Yale University School of Medicine, in New Haven, CT, Mahoney extended his training by completing a spine fellowship program at SpineCare Medical Group in Daly City, Calif. This fellowship provided him with additional, specialized training and is a marker of a surgeon who has chosen to make the extra investment in his field of medicine.
Flagstaff and the surrounding communities are tremendously fortunate to have a physician with this level of sub-specialty expertise providing this care to the people who live here.

KAFF RADIO Interview with Chamber of Commerce President Julie Pastrick, Dec. 2016
“I am excited to join NAO and the Flagstaff community. I look forward to treating patients with the utmost care and attention. I treat my patients as if they were a member of my family and try to create the most effective treatment plan for him or her, be it non-operative or surgical.”
”As a longtime Flagstaff resident, I am happy our little mountain town has a spine surgeon like Dr. Mahoney caring for the people here. I felt comfortable from the first appointment with him. He spent time with me explaining my options and answered all my questions, never making me feel rushed. After my successful spine surgery, I feel so blessed and grateful to have had such a competent and attentive doctor and staff. “
”The knowledge and time taken to explain my ailments was well worth the long drive! Thank you for the expertise and kindness provided! “
”Dr Mahoney took time with me he explained things that had not been explained before. I wish there was a book as to what to expect after this type of surgery. Thank you Dr Mahoney for being patient and understanding.“
