Paul A. Glazer, MD, FAAOS
Board-Certified, Fellowship-Trained Spine Surgeon
“There is nothing as rewarding as helping people overcome severe pain disabilities. I am extremely fortunate to be able to help so many people of all ages and from all walks of life. Some think they are beyond help. But instead of giving them just hope, I want to give them their lives back.”
Orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Paul A. Glazer graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1988. He completed his residency training in orthopedic surgery at New York Orthopaedic Hospital of Columbia University (now NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital), in New York City, which included some time at Shriners Hospital for Children in Springfield, Massachusetts. He went on to complete two fellowships: one in research at the New York Orthopaedic Hospital Research Laboratory in NYC, and the second in spinal surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.
Dr. Glazer is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He also teaches at Harvard Medical School as an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery.
People travel from all over the United States and the world to see Dr. Glazer. That’s because he has an outstanding reputation for treating cervical and lumbar degenerative disease, spinal deformities, spinal trauma, and spinal patients with metastatic cancer disease – most often using state-of-the-art minimally invasive approaches and procedures, some of which he pioneered himself.
Dr. Glazer is fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (FAAOS) and an active member of several spine societies including the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS), North American Spine Society (NASS), and Scoliosis Research Society.
His research interests include the evaluation of methods to attain spinal fusion, of which he has published several articles on the biomechanical stability of instrumentation.
