A board certified, fellowship-trained spine surgeon, Dr. Jason Lowenstein is committed to taking a conservative approach when working with young patients dealing with scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, and sports related injuries of the spine. He develops balanced treatment plans to address and manage patients’ spinal issues.
Taking a Team Approach
“I take a team approach when working with patients,” says the father of three. “I want children and families to play an active role in the treatment process.”
The program director of scoliosis and spinal deformity in the department of orthopaedic surgery at Morristown Medical Center, he offers families his expertise and training in all aspects of adult and pediatric spine surgery.
Dr. Lowenstein specializes in the treatment of scoliosis, kyphosis, and spondylolisthesis; cervical and lumbar disc herniations and stenosis, minimally-invasive spine surgery, and revision spine surgery for the treatment of failed back syndrome.
Choosing the Non-Invasive Treatment Option
Dr. Lowenstein believes in pursuing all non-surgical options first, such as brace treatment or the Schroth Method of physical therapy for scoliosis. “I choose the least invasive approach whenever possible,” he says. “Using the latest technology also allows me to make the treatment process easier and reduce recovery time.”
A member of the Scoliosis Research Society, North American Spine Society and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Lowenstein studied neuroscience and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania. He earned his medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh, and performed his orthopedic surgery residency at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center.

"Dr. Lowenstein did surgery on my daughter, and he has followed her for over three years and is always available for any concern. She can do all activities now except gym but that's due to the spinal fusion. My daughter adores and respects him. He was very honest with her the entire time and still is." -Cheryl, Rockaway
“He is compassionate, patient, thorough, clear, professional, educated, excellent!” -Karin, Denville
“Dr. Lowenstein is an excellent spine surgeon. He's highly-trained and professional. I'd recommend him for anyone's scoliosis correction surgery."
“He did an amazing job on my friend’s daughter’s surgery. Without the surgery performed, she would not be able to move like she is able to now, and for this makes him extraordinary.” -Darla, Succasunna
“[Dr. Lowenstein] operated on one of my family friends, he was very kind to them, and was a phenomenal doctor, and the surgery was a success!” -Victoria, Rockaway
“My dear friend's daughter had very complicated surgery with [Dr. Lowenstein] and the entire process was phenomenal. A cyst was removed from the spine and the child is now doing great!” -Eileen, Morristown
“My son was 16 at the time of his diagnosis of scoliosis. It came on quick and it was pretty severe-64-degree-curvature. So he needed surgery right away. This was a very difficult time for an active teen boy to find out he needed a serious spinal surgery. Dr. Lowenstein was very patient and kind in walking us through the process. He always took all the time we needed and made us feel as comfortable as he could. We so appreciate his medical expertise as well as his wonderful bedside manner.” -Mary, Sparta
" When a close friend of mine needed to find a spinal surgeon for her daughter, Dr. Lowenstein was everybody's recommendation. He is an excellent surgeon who took fantastic care of her- before,during and well after her procedure. Watching a young child go through a really extensive surgery is difficult, but we all knew she was in great hands with him. A year out and she is doing great! Thanks Dr. Lowenstein!" -Kristin, Morristown
