Dr. Mastanduno is a fellowship trained Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist.  She received her doctor of osteopathy from the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.  She went on to complete her residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at New York University Langone Medical Center where she served as chief resident during her final year of training.  She continued with a fellowship in Interventional Spine and Sports Medicine at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, NY.

Dr. Mastanduno prefers a more conservative approach to treatment prior to exploring more invasive options.  She takes a holistic view, which allows her to create an effective treatment plan based on each patient’s lifestyle and functional ability, and enjoys educating her patients about their conditions and ways to manage their symptoms.  Her clinical interests include lower back pain, neck pain, and degenerative processes in patients of all activity levels, from athletes to weekend warriors and everyone in between.  She is trained in the use of fluoroscopic guided injections including epidural injections, facet injections, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablations, and sacroiliac joint injections.  Additionally, she is trained in the use of ultrasound guided injections to the knee, hip, shoulder, and various other joints.  

She is a member of numerous professional associations including the Spine Intervention Society and the North American Spine Society.

Dr. Mastanduno enjoys hiking, yoga, and baking desserts for friends and family.
