Chronic pain caused by a spinal condition can manifest itself in a variety of different ways. Our patients often describe their symptoms as “neck or back pain”, simply because spinal problems can be so complex and often present as overwhelming pain. We recognize that most individuals are not able to fully articulate what is happening inside their body, which is why our team has decades of experience in diagnostics. Our physicians will be able to determine the exact cause of your pain, and explain it to you in a way you can understand. *
There are a variety of treatment options for all types of neck and back pain, and what works for one patient may not work for the next. No matter the condition, surgery will always be NYSI’s last option. Our neck and back doctors work tirelessly to create a non-surgical treatment plan for each and every client, but some cases may require spinal surgery.
Types of Spinal Surgeries we offer our Garden City patients:
•Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion
•ALIF: Anterior Cervical Corpectomy

New York Spine Institute’s surgical team is composed of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, each with decades of experience. Our spine surgeons have all undergone extensive training to become familiar with all bone and neurological disorders associated with the spine. If you require surgery, the first step is a pre-operative consultation where your diagnosis and surgical plan are explained. After surgery, your physician will provide you with a post-operative treatment plan, tailor-made personally for you.
New York Spine Institute specializes in the treatment of scoliosis. We are proud to have a team of scoliosis experts, specializing in both pediatric and adult scoliosis treatment. From common types of scoliosis to more complex, our Garden City scoliosis patients are in good hands. *

For more severe cases requiring surgery, our Garden City patients will be in the care of spine surgeons at the world-renowned NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. These nationally ranked back surgeons are experts in their field, giving frequent lectures and publishing articles regarding scoliosis and its treatment.

Diagnosis of back pain always begins with a complete evaluation by one of our back specialists, where we ask questions and listen to your complains to gain an idea of what exactly is going on. If we see fit, some tests may be administered to aid in diagnosis. Though we are a surgical practice, we strive to provide our Garden City patients with non-surgical pain relief. *

Garden City, NY patients include:
Our most common treatment option is physical therapy, for both surgical and non-surgical patients. Physical therapy is a non-operative treatment providing quick results. We believe physical therapy is a great option, as it is easy for patients to incorporate and continue progressing outside of the office. New York Spine Institute’s Physical Therapy Department is led by Michael Friar, D.P.T.
The main goal of physical therapy is to encourage mobility and restore proper function in the back, neck, and spine. Physical therapy commonly implements stretching, exercise, and manual therapy. Based on each client’s condition, not all aspects of physical therapy may be necessary. Additionally, an important part of physical therapy is actually not physical at all. NYSI’s physical therapy team teaches patients proper body mechanics and postural awareness, which we believe is just as important in the road to recovery. We also provide every patient with at-home exercise programs, specially designed to fit into their daily life, for long-term pain management.
In addition to stretching and non-strenuous exercise, some patients may benefit from strength and endurance training. Our physical therapy department is equipped with weight and cardio machines designed specially for physical therapy treatment. New York Spine Institute takes patient safety extremely seriously, which is why our licensed physical therapist will evaluate each patient’s current level of function and designed an optimal level of function. We do this in conjunction with creating realistic goals and keeping each patient’s individual needs in mind.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is useful for diagnosing many conditions. It is safe and noninvasive, and helps NYSI to uphold its mission of treating patients with comfort. The digital radiology department allows the radiologist to analyze images for bone and soft tissue anatomy. NYSI diagnostic imaging provides individualized care as well as state-of-the-art diagnostics.
To aid in diagnostics, we often utilize Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This imaging tool produces high quality images of the inner anatomical structure in a noninvasive and safe manner. This service is performed in our digital radiology department by one of our expert radiologists, using only the most advanced diagnostic and imaging tools.
The MRI is often a physician’s first choice to aid in diagnosing a plethora of different conditions in medicine. The painless, fast procedure allows for visibility of conditions that are undetectable from the exterior.
Our radiologists serving Garden City, NY utilize a high-field short-bore 1.5T MRI system and Digital Radiography (DX) X-Ray technology.
