Welcome to the borough’s new, one and only, full-service spine center to offer an advanced, minimally invasive, image-guided spine surgery.

Kenneth Gibbs, president and chief executive officer at Maimonides Medical Center, along with Dr. Patrick Borgen, chairperson of surgery, and Dr. Jack Choueka, chairperson of orthopedics, snipped the ribbon and opened the new center located at 6010 Bay Pkwy.

“Our new spine center brings the highest level of expertise to the communities we serve,” said Gibbs.

Dr. Borgen explained, “The Maimonides Spine Center offers advanced, minimally invasive, image-guided spine surgery — with an unprecedented precision that speeds recovery time, minimizes scarring, and reduces the need for medication after surgery.”

“Our spine center brings together the finest in both neurosurgical and orthopedic expertise,” added Dr. Choueka. “And our facility provides all of the most advanced imaging and diagnostic equipment — all under one roof in a stunning setting.”

Specialists at the Maimonides Spine Center always consider both surgical and nonsurgical options to determine the least invasive and most appropriate treatment for your needs.

“Our team offers the latest neurosurgical spine treatment options,” added Dr. John Houten, director of spinal neurosurgery and neurotrauma.

“Our comprehensive spine center significantly enhances the delivery of spine care in Brooklyn,” agreed Dr. Ahmed Saleh, orthopedic spine surgeon.
