Specialty: Orthopedic Spine Surgery: Scoliosis & Spinal Deformity

Dr. Jason Lowenstein is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon and serves as chief of scoliosis and spinal deformity at Morristown Medical Center/Goryeb Children’s Hospital. He’s been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor; voted Top Doctor by New York Magazine and New Jersey Monthly Magazine; honored by Inside Jersey Magazine as a Top Doctor, Top Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon, and Top Doctor for Children’s Health, and was named one of NJ’s Favorite Kids’ Docs by New Jersey Family magazine.

Focused on Cutting-Edge, Minimally-Invasive Care

He 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 or previous spinal deformity surgeries that require further surgical intervention.

He utilizes vertebral body tethering (VBT) while treating patients with scoliosis as a flexible alternative to traditional fusion surgery and was the first surgeon in NJ to utilize the first and only FDA approved tether instrumentation system from Zimmer Biomet.

Finding the Right Treatment Plan

When managing patients with scoliosis, Dr. Lowenstein believes in pursuing all nonsurgical options first, such as brace treatment or the Schroth Method of physical therapy.

“When surgery’s necessary, I often utilize minimally-invasive techniques to make the treatment process easier and reduce recovery time.”

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. He completed a fellowship in adult and pediatric spine and scoliosis surgery at Emory University Hospital.
