Almost every physical activity we perform involves the spine in some way. The structural support provided by the spine enables mobility, while its pivotal role within the nervous system enables brain signals to be distributed to the rest of the body.

In short, spine health is a critical matter.

Spinal conditions and injuries are highly sensitive in nature; and spinal treatments and operations must accordingly be treated with the highest level of precision. That’s why Rothman Orthopaedic Institute has compiled a team of the most qualified Manhattan spine specialists. In fact, the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute spinal team includes three surgeons that have been recognized on the Orthopedics This Week list of the Top 28 Spine Surgeons in the Country.

Following these tests, a formal diagnosis will be provided and a personalized treatment plan will be composed.

It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
