Dr. Lewin is one of the few doctors in the states of New York and New Jersey who is experienced in performing Endoscopic Fusion Surgery. Endoscopic Fusion Surgery is a minimally-invasive spinal surgery that can be used to correct: Degenerative Disc Disease Spondylolisthesis Scoliosis and other disorders of the spine This method of surgery reduces patient trauma and scarring associated with traditional surgery by minimizing prolonged muscle retraction, incision size and blood loss. The process preserves healthy muscle and soft tissue while reducing post-operative pain and recovery time. Endoscopic Fusion Surgery requires the surgeon to insert a camera through a small incision approximately 1cm in length. Dr. Lewin’s method is a combination of traditional and modern techniques to individualize spinal care for each patient, culminating in the least traumatic solution. Dr. Lewin’s subspecialty of Spinal Disorders includes treatment of: • Cervical • Thoracic • Lumbar
Verified Patient Reviews
Unfortunately, another Top Trauma Orthopedic who cannot help me. My catastrophic L5-S1 severe/constant Pain From Congenital Malformation/Disruption/ Dysfunction/Spinal- Instability, remains too complex to Treat/Repair. Amazingly, technology has not at all changed in 22 years. ?? Nothing - except, not being able to receive the actual “Best Practice in Pain Management.” Pain Medication. Complete lunacy and disrespect for those of us who suffer needlessly.
Very knowledgeable doctor and the staff are friendly.
Outstanding doctor-patient interaction. All the reception staff very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Will explain on a level you can understand, so you would be as comfortable as possible, and be confident in the procedure. Thank you for everything!! =)
