Steven G. Dorsky, M.D,


Dr. Steven G. Dorsky founded the New Jersey Spine Center in 1987 to bring together multiple spine specialties in one comprehensive practice — to offer patients the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art, tertiary care for back problems in the region.

Dr. Dorsky is not only recognized as one of the TOP 100 Spine Surgeons in the U.S. (by Becker’s Spine Review, an independent national orthopedic and spine organization involved in research and education) but  he is also the Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ, and their Site Director of Orthopedic Residency Training. With an appointment as Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the New Jersey Medical School in Newark, he helps prepare the next generation of doctors in quality spinal care treatment.

At the New Jersey Spine Center, Dr. Dorsky specializes in micro and minimally invasive surgery, including the treatment of complex spine problems and failed back surgeries, fractures, tumors, and scoliosis in children and adults.

His training and expertise allows him to use techniques minimizing blood loss, and many of his complex surgical procedures can be done without requiring blood transfusions. He is also able to perform many spinal procedures on an outpatient basis.

Dr. Dorsky is fellowship trained and board certified in spine surgery, and a fellow of the North American Spine Society and the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Dorsky received his medical degree from Brown University Medical School. Following an internship in General Surgery from Montefiore Hospital and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he completed his Residency in Orthopedic Surgery and a Fellowship in Spine Surgery also at the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopedic Institute in New York, NY.

Widely published, Dr. Dorsky has also developed and patented a system of spine instrumentation that is widely used throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Far East.
