Dr. Lewin is licensed to practice medicine in several states including New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He is currently a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and is the Director of Spine Surgery at North Shore University Hospital in Forest Hills, New York. 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. Patients are able to leave the hospital sooner, with less pain and can usually return to their normal daily routine within weeks. 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.
