A Pioneer in Spine Surgery
Dr. Louis G. Quartararo (Dr. Q) is regarded as a pioneer in minimally invasive spine surgery treatments. He opened his New Jersey practice in 2000, and has been dedicated to providing his patients with what he considers “concierge-level care.”
“I love what I do and that’s because it boils down to helping make a real, lasting and positive difference in people’s lives,” states Dr. Q.
Dr. Q has been practicing surgery for over a decade and has an extensive list of achievements and experience in the industry. He completed an Orthopedic Spine Surgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins University, has had several peer-reviewed articles published, has presented on spinal surgery developments both nationally and internationally, and is board-certified with the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.
Dr. Q is one of just a few specialists in the New Jersey area to offer endoscopic lumbar fusion as an outpatient surgery to correct degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis and other spinal disorders.
“As a spine surgeon, my practice is recognizably different from most others, and that’s no accident,” says Dr. Q.
“People deserve the best that I can give them, which depends on developing a relationship, catering to their unique needs and putting my heart into everything I do.”
