Eugene, Oregon

Founder of KeiperSpine and the Spine Surgery Center

Meet
Dr. Glenn L. Keiper Jr

Like any doctor, Glenn Keiper Jr. has been through an intense amount of education and training. But unlike a good many doctors, he’s been able to help revolutionize procedures in neurosurgery that have made him one of the top surgeons in his field, and he’s built his own practice and general surgery facility that is the envy of Oregon. Born in Akron, Ohio and the son of an oral surgeon, he spent much of his high school years working in his dad’s office. He always knew he was going to be a doctor when he grew up, originally thinking he’d get into orthopedics.

Dr. Keiper received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, where he received the Miles Q. White Award in Biology and the school’s Academic Achievement Award. He proceeded to medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where he earned the Salvador M. Adriano Memorial Award in Pathology. He stayed at the University of Cincinnati Department of Surgery to finish his General Surgery Residency and Neurosurgery Residency.
