Specialty Expertise and Experience Advances Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Care at University Hospital

Board-certified orthopedic and neurosurgical teams use the most innovative technologies to treat the full spectrum of medical- or trauma-related spine conditions in pediatric and adult patients throughout the northern New Jersey area.

University Hospital leverages the expertise of fellowship-trained specialists to treat emergent spine trauma as well as chronic and acute back pain associated with degenerative spine, musculoskeletal or neuromuscular disorders that often require tailored treatment plans carried out by teams of multidisciplinary experts.

“The spine surgeons at University Hospital have years of experience treating the entire spectrum of spine-related problems, ranging from routine disc herniations, scoliosis and spinal stenosis caused by traumatic injuries from motor vehicle accidents, as well as complex tumors or severe infections,” says Michael Vives, MD, Chief of the Spine Division in the Department of Orthopaedics at University Hospital and Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS), who has served patients at the hospital for 14 years. “Patient-centered care and multidisciplinary treatment are vital when treating such a broad range of spine pathologies because each case presents unique challenges.”

Muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy exemplify the necessity for care coordination across the continuum of pre- and postoperative care, according to Sanjeev Sabharwal, MD, MPH, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics at University Hospital and Professor of Orthopaedics at Rutgers NJMS.
