Dr. Tina Rodrigue was born and raised in upstate New York. She received her undergraduate degree from Colgate University, with a major in neuroscience. She joined the United States Naval Reserve towards the end of college, and received a scholarship to attend medical school. From there she moved south, completing medical school in 1997 at the Medical College of Virginia.

The next seven years were spent in Cleveland, Ohio, completing her neurosurgical residency at Case Western Reserve University. During this time, she was also afforded the opportunity to obtain a Master's degree in Clinical Investigation. Her thesis revolved around creating an outcome prediction model for patients presenting with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage.

In 2004, upon completion of her residency, she became a full-time active-duty Naval Medical Officer, and spent three years stationed at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center. At Portsmouth, she had the opportunity to treat patients ranging in age from 2 days to 92 years, and with a variety of diseases including spinal degeneration, congenital malformations, trauma, brain tumors, and peripheral nerve compression. Although she jokingly considers herself a "simple country neurosurgeon" and works with the entire gamut of neurosurgical problems, she has special interests in endoscopic brain surgery, complex spinal surgery, and pediatrics.

She has completed her active duty military service, and joined Dr. Gurtner in October 2007. She is ABNS Board Certified.
