Spine Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our one-year, non-accredited Spine Fellowship Program covers all types of spinal pathology, including degenerative disease, traumatic injury, tumors, and deformity. You gain exposure to both open and minimally invasive procedures and take on increasing responsibility over time. Fellows attend weekly Grand Rounds.

Research is also an important component of our program, and fellows devote considerable time to this endeavor, producing publishable work.


Fellows gain surgical exposure to both open and minimally invasive procedures. You work with spine surgery attendings to prepare surgical cases and manage inpatients. Over time, you take on increasing responsibility and hone your technical skills. Also, fellows present cases at the monthly spinal rounds.

In addition, you spend one day a week with limited clinical activities so that you can focus on research activities, including preparation for papers, videos, and conferences. We expect that you will produce at least one publishable work during the year in either basic or clinical science.
