The Montefiore Approach

The Division of Orthopedic Spine Surgery at Montefiore brings together a tremendous breadth of expertise to treat a wide range of spine disorders. In collaboration with the Montefiore Spine Center, we offer patients an array of surgical and non-surgical treatment options, from conventional procedures to minimally invasive and motion-sparing surgeries.

Our fellowship-trained specialists are dedicated to the diagnosis and management of complex spine conditions, including adult spinal deformities, degenerative conditions and disorders of the cervical spine. Whatever the individual treatment strategy might be, our goal is to provide our patients with care that best suits their unique needs.

As an academic medical center, we are constantly striving for innovations in spinal treatment. Our participation in biomechanical, translational and clinical research allows us to explore exciting new methods for the advancement of care within our own health system and beyond.

The experience of our patients and their loved ones—not simply their ailments—demands our full attention. Your dedicated care team will be there to discuss your condition, answer questions, assess treatment options and develop a treatment strategy that is best for you.

Spine conditions can present complex challenges. At Montefiore, we believe successful outcomes are achieved through appropriate treatment selection, careful surgical planning, and meticulous surgical technique.

Using a collaborative multidisciplinary approach, we bring together spine surgeons, anesthesiologists, non-operative spine specialists and rehab medicine physicians to assess and customize a patient-specific treatment plan.

As an academic medical center, we are deeply committed to advancing the science of medicine. Together with our Albert Einstein College of Medicine, one of the highest NIH-funded institutions in the country, we work toward excellence in spine study and care. Our research efforts endeavor to better understand why patients develop spine conditions and, importantly, improve operative and non-operative treatments for these conditions. We routinely present our research findings in both national and international arenas, and we publish our results in well-respected medical journals so that patients everywhere can benefit from what we learn and discover at Montefiore.
