About Dr. John Hall

Dr. John Hall joined Flagstaff Bone & Joint in November 2007. He is board-certified and fellowship-trained in spine surgery.

Dr. Hall knows that back and spine problems can be aggravating for the sufferer and can limit or put a stop to normal activities. This makes life difficult and frustrating for the patient. This is why Dr. Hall is passionate about the well-being of the patient and will use the latest techniques and personalized care to correctly diagnose and treat the problem. Whether the patient's injury was caused by a snowboarding accident or osteoporosis, Dr. Hall will do his best to return the patient to pre-injury health as quickly as possible.

Dr. Hall completed his medical education and surgical internship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He then completed his orthopaedic residency at the University of California San Diego Department of Orthopedic Surgery. After his residency, Dr. Hall completed fellowship training in spine surgery at Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center.

Dr. Hall also has an extensive career in the military. He has served eight years in the US Navy (1990-1998) and the remainder in the Arizona Air National Guard. He continues to serve to this day.

    – Rebecca

  • Dr. Hall and his Team, especially Paul Knott, helped me through back surgery to be relieved of leg pain I have had for years. I would recommend Dr. Hall & Team to anyone with back and leg pain. You don't have to live with these medical conditions.

    – Dennis P.

  • Everything was better that I could ask for and was by far worth the wait. From door to door the staff was great and also a very clean place to be. Thank you for the great service again.

    – Steve B.

  • These two superstars, Dr. John Hall and Jennifer Almendarez P.A.-C., are the experts for osteoporosis and spine injuries. They give the patient their full attention, and discuss all aspects of surgeries and injury solutions for however long it takes the patient to understand all the options they present. This duo have written the book on patient care and set the highest bar most other doctors can only aspire to.
