Scoliosis occurs when a person’s spine curves from side to side instead of front to back. While it is one of the most common spine conditions, that doesn’t make it any easier to have. Some people with minor scoliosis may not need treatment. Those with extreme curves in their spine may suffer from a variety of health issues. These can range from things like fatigue to breathing issues. Patients may also suffer from image issues as a result.

If you need scoliosis treatment in The Greater New York area, then The NYSI in North Highland is the obvious choice. No matter your age or what type of scoliosis you have – either the degenerative or common idiopathic sort, we can help you. We’ll take a fully comprehensive approach to your condition and always provide you with the quality care that you deserve.

Since treatment is highly individualized, it is hard to estimate what you may need. But if you need surgery, then the NYSI in North Highland will have you in good hands. All of our back surgeons are experts in their field and have the credentials to prove it. All of our back doctors have lectured throughout the world and authored multiple scholarly publications regarding spine disorders. They even regularly perform surgeries at our nationally ranked hospital: The NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases.

X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine



The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine was invented in 1977 and has since revolutionized medical practices everywhere. It is a useful, non-invasive, and safe way to help diagnose conditions. Our MRI machine gives our doctors the tools that they need to analyze your bones and soft tissue anatomy.

Our office in North Highland has state of the art, technologically advanced diagnostic tools. In addition to our 1.5 MRI system, we also have a Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

Our high-field short bore 1.5 MRI system supports many clinical situations. We can do MRI scans of the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, and even the foot!

New York Spine Institute’s brand-new GE 1.5 system will also provide our physicians with their best images yet. With this system, our doctors will be able to see high-quality and detailed pictures of your condition. That way, they can accurately diagnose and eventually treat your back pain.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. It is used all over the world to diagnose multiple conditions. That is because it is extremely safe, non-invasive, and helpful to physicians. Many times, an MRI scan will pick up the presence of a certain disease when other tools such as x-rays cannot.

We know that doctor’s visits can be scary but we don’t think they should be. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in our office. That is why we have made our office in North Highland as relaxing as possible. We have relaxing music, earplugs, and even sleeping masks.

New York Spine Institute of North Highland  is even outfitted with its own digital radiology department. In this part of our practice, the images are digitized and radiologists can analyze bone and soft tissue. As part of this, we also offer Longth Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.


*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
