Qualifications of Dr. Fabien Bitan MD

Professional Statement

Dr. Fabien D. Bitan is an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon in private practice in Manhattan. He is the director of Spine Surgery services at Lenox Hill Hospital. Dr. Bitan was trained in Paris, France where he gained his Medical Degree and his Board Certification in Orthopedic Surgery.

His orthopedic training in the 80s was from the outset oriented towards spinal surgery. One of the most important periods of his training years was the twelve months spent at the "Institut Calot" in Berk-sur-mer in northern France. The "Institut Calot" is one of the most prominent centers for the treatment of spinal deformities (SCOLIOSIS AND KYPHOSIS) in Europe. Dr. Cotrel has been the chief surgeon of this institution where he designed the "Cotrel-Dubousset Instrumentation" in the mid 19080s. Dr. Bitan had the privilege of training during these years and acquired extensive experience in the use of this revolutionary technique well before it became wide-spread in the orthopedic world. (Today, this technique is recognized throughout the world as one of the most influential breakthroughs in spinal surgery of the last decades). Enriched by a personal experience of more than a thousand surgical cases, Dr. Bitan is recognized as one of the experts in spinal instrumentation, especially for SCOLIOSIS AND KYPHOSIS.

Since his residency Dr. Bitan has also gained much experience with Artificial Disc Replacement technology (Charite Disc). Originally, this procedure was used only in France at only one institution.
