Brain & Spine Surgeons of NY is pleased to announce the arrival of John Galeno, MD to the practice. Dr. Galeno is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in Spinal Surgery and General Orthopedics. He is also an Assistant Professor of Orthopedics at New York Medical College.

In the field of spinal surgery, Dr. Galeno has special training to treat and care for severe spinal deformities, as well as different types of trauma to all parts of the spine. He performs complex surgical procedures for various spinal conditions such as scoliosis and kyphosis. He manages spinal tumors and degenerative conditions involving the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. He has training in minimally invasive spinal techniques, as well as artificial disc replacement. He also has special training in the robotic navigation technique. This technique is highly regarded for its improvement in accuracy during spinal instrumentation surgery and optimizes patient care.

Dr. Galeno has presented at the International Scoliosis Research Society Meeting and has been a guest lecturer on topics involving the Spine and General Orthopedics.

Dr. Galeno is proud to say that he spends a significant amount of time discussing treatment options with his patients, carefully explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each.

“Although I perform many general orthopedic procedures, including arthroscopic surgeries, total joint replacements, and minor hand and foot surgeries, my main area of expertise is the spine,” said Dr. Galeno. “Most degenerative problems of the spine can be treated conservatively, with physical therapy, pain management, and rest.”

“Only after non-operative treatment is exhausted do we consider surgery to correct the problem,” he said. “My patients are directly involved in the decision-making process. In my mind, it is of the utmost importance for my patients to understand their problem and how we embark on a treatment plan for any orthopedic problem.”
