Porter Health Care System continues to expand its Porter Physician Group, now with the introduction of a Neurosurgery practice led by Neurosurgeon Jonathan Hobbs, M.D. of the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine. The Neurosurgery office is located on the Porter Regional Hospital Campus in Valparaiso.   Dr. Hobbs, who has joined the medical staff at Porter Regional Hospital, specializes in spine surgery, general neurosurgery, spine and brain tumors, and complex spinal deformity correction.  

Porter Health Care System and Northwest Indiana Market Chief Executive Officer, Sean Dardeau, remarked, “The addition of Dr. Hobbs to Porter Physician Group and our Medical Staff is a significant benefit to area residents. The breadth and depth of experience he brings from his tenure at the University of Chicago will allow patients to receive complex brain and spine surgery right here in Valparaiso rather than travel out of Northwest Indiana for treatment. “

Hobbs received his medical degree from the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky and completed a master of science degree, neurosurgical internship and neurosurgical residency at the University of Chicago where he had the honor of serving as Chief Resident.  Hobbs is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Chicago.  

“Moving my family to the Valparaiso area and developing the Neurosurgery program at Porter Regional Hospital is a great opportunity.” said Hobbs.  “I’m looking forward to building on the expertise and quality care already available at the hospital to serve patients with conditions and injuries affecting the brain and spine.”

Dr. Hobbs is accepting new patients at his office on the Porter Regional Hospital Campus. He accepts most insurance including Medicare and Medicaid.  Call 219-926-2000 to schedule an appointment.
