Dr. Cabell has a special interest in cervical myelopathy, adult scoliosis and deformity, and minimally invasive lumbar fusion.
Dr. Cabell was inspired to enter medicine after her mother experienced serious health symptoms that were brushed aside. She earned both her bachelor of arts in psychology and doctor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. She completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, followed by a combined neurologic and orthopedic spine surgery fellowship at the Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
Away from medicine, Dr. Cabell enjoys spending time with her husband and son, reading, cooking, and traveling. As a former collegiate track athlete, she appreciates that the beauty of the Pacific Northwest encourages an active lifestyle.
