Dr. Casden has been consistently named one of New York Magazines’ Best Doctors, Castle Connollys’ Top Doctors in the New York Area and Top Doctors by U.S. News and World Report.

Dr. Casden’s comprehensive approach takes each patient’s lifestyle and expectations into consideration, and he focuses on offering the most sensible treatment option for each patient.

Non-operative treatment, including epidural injections, is performed in his office by the physiatrists. All appropriate treatment options are explored before Dr. Casden would recommend surgery. His surgical specialization includes the treatment of herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and degenerative disease of the spine. He has extensive experience in the field of spinal deformity, including scoliosis and kyphosis in both children and adults.
