Leading-edge diagnostic capabilities, surgical and nonsurgical technologies, expert staff, and an affiliation with one of the world’s finest orthopedic surgery centers distinguish New York Spine Institute as a tri-state leader in spine care.
New York Spine Institute has experienced exponential growth, both in terms of reach and capability, since it was founded in 2000 by second-generation orthopedic spine surgeon and Medical Director of the Institute Alexandre de Moura, MD, FAAOS. The wide array of innovative solutions for back and neck conditions now available to Long Islanders is, in large part, thanks to Dr. de Moura’s vision.
“I witnessed my first spine surgery at age 15,” he says. “I knew then I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become an orthopedic surgeon. I’ve dedicated my life to becoming a leader in the field of orthopedic spine care. Founding and guiding New York Spine Institute is a significant step toward accomplishing that vision.”
Dr. de Moura has practiced as an orthopedic spine specialist on Long Island since 1996. He opened the first New York Spine Institute location in Westbury. Today, the Institute encompasses 11 locations, with offices in New York.
“We deliver the full spectrum of orthopedic spine solutions to the communities we serve,” Dr. de Moura says. “My vision has always been to bring the highest level of care possible to areas where there is a dearth of convenient access to leading-edge care.”
