About Dr. Ross Jones

Board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon Dr. Ross Jones joined Flagstaff Bone & Joint in 2017. After receiving his bachelor of science degree in biology from Brigham Young University in Rexburg, Idaho, Dr. Jones went on to earn his medical degree from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri. He then completed his residency training in orthopaedic surgery at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and St. Mary’s Medical Center in Blue Springs, Missouri. After his residency, Dr. Jones underwent an additional year of specialized training through an orthopaedic spine surgery fellowship at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Alabama.

Dr. Jones’ practice focus is on minimally invasive spine surgeries (MISS).  The goal of MISS is to get patients back to what they love doing as quickly as possible.  Minimally invasive spine surgery uses smaller incisions causing less harm to nearby muscles and other tissues leading patients to have less pain and a faster recovery after surgery.  Dr. Jones’ advanced training using surgical robotics and navigation technology makes MISS available to many patients needing spine surgery.  MISS include spine and sacroiliac fusions.

When he is not seeing patients, Dr. Jones enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, snow skiing, kayaking and canoeing, camping, fishing, and hunting. He also does woodworking, plays and coaches sports, and participates in humanitarian and medical mission trips.

Dr. Ross Jones, a back, neck, spine, and trauma surgeon, is available to treat patients at the following Flagstaff Bone & Joint locations: Flagstaff and Cottonwood.

  • Dr. Jones was very up front with me on the first visit. The operation went well and I went home quickly. When God provides you with a good Dr. what else could you ask for.

    – Chester L.

  • I saw Dr. Jones to discuss issues with my C-spine, which is herniated along with arthritis issues. Dr. Jones went over my xrays and MRI to explain what he saw and gave me options for medications, as well as future surgery and what that would entail. We were very impressed with Dr. Jones and felt confident with his advice. We will definitely continue to see him as needed.
