Dr. Gary K. Michelson (born January 14, 1949) is an American board certified orthopedic spinal surgeon and inventor.

Michelson and his three brothers were raised by his mother and grandmother. He is of Jewish heritage. His grandmother suffered a crippling spinal deformity, which led him to dedicate his life to improving the lives of those afflicted with spinal ailments. He attended Central High School of Philadelphia, Temple University and Hahnemann Medical College. He completed his medical residency in orthopedic surgery at Hahnemann Medical Hospital and then had fellowship training in spinal surgery at St. Lukea??s Medical Center in a joint program between Baylor University and the University of Texas. He has been a practicing spinal surgeon for over 25 years and has over 110 research papers and publications to his credit.

Unhappy with the low success rates associated with spinal surgery procedures at the beginning of his career, he spent countless hours developing better implants, instruments and procedures that would enable spinal surgeons to cure a greater proportion of spinal ailments. "Michelson devices" have been implanted globally in hundreds of thousands of patients. He has over 250 U.S. Patents on instruments, methods and devices for advances in spinal and orthopedic surgery and over 950 issued or pending patents worldwide for instruments, operative procedures, and medical devices related to the treatment of spinal disorders.
In 2005, as the inventor, he sold ownership of many of his spine related patents to Medtronic for a price over $1 billion, sending him onto the Forbes 400 where he has since remained. His defense of a patent lawsuit by Medtronic established a major legal precedent in 2003, governing who bears the cost of pre-trial discovery of electronic evidence.
Since retirement from private practice, he also founded and funds several
