Richard Nachwalter, M.D. of Atlantic Spine Specialists Discusses Innovations in Surgery

One of New Jerseys Top Orthopedic Spine Surgeons Talks about the Latest Trends.

Morristown, NJ, December 23, 2016 –(– Richard Nachwalter, M.D., a leading orthopedic spine surgeon and part of Atlantic Spine Specialists in Morristown, NJ; appreciates innovation, but when it comes to innovation for surgery, it’s not about being the first.

He is no stranger to innovation. He was the first orthopedic spine surgeon in New Jersey to use SYNTHESIS Cervical Total Disc Replacement and an early adopter of O-Arm Surgical Imaging System, which provides real-time, intraoperative imaging of a patient’s anatomy with high quality images to make surgery safer. In each case there was compelling data and published reports with favorable results about these innovations to support their usage, and they made sense. This is part of the methodical process he uses any time he adopts a new technique or uses a new instrument for surgery.

As a spine surgeon with more than 15 years of experience in all disorders of the spine, he doesn’t jump on the bandwagons of trends. By using methods that he’s used to perform countless surgeries, he’s saved lives and restored patients’ quality of life, whether it be chronic back pain or life-changing-or-threatening trauma.

“There is no epiphany on how to treat back pain,” Richard Nachwalter, M.D., said. “Doctors know the most effective way to perform which procedure for which ailment based on a history of efficacy and safety. At Atlantic Spine Specialists, we always stay updated on what’s happening in orthopedic spine surgery. We only use gold standards of surgery, so we adopt a new technique once there is sufficient evidence that proves its effectiveness and safety.”

Richard Nachwalter, M.D., served as the first chairman of the Spine New Technology Committee at Atlantic Health. He also serves on the Spine Steering committee and served on the Orthopedic advisory committee. He has recently been appointed to the Operating Room Committee at Morristown Medical Center. As a member of Atlantic Spine Specialists, he [and partner Carl Giordano, M.D.] utilize minimally invasive techniques, microscopic surgical techniques, and traditional surgery as well.
