Jason E. Lowenstein, MD

Specialty: Orthopedic Spine Surgery: Scoliosis & Spinal Deformity

Dr. Jason Lowenstein is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon practicing in both New Jersey and New York City. He serves as medical director and chief of scoliosis and spinal deformity at Morristown Medical Center, and is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at NYU Langone Health. He’s been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor; voted Top Doctor by New York Magazine and NJ Monthly Magazine, and Jersey’s Best Magazine; honored by Inside Jersey Magazine as a Top Doctor, Top Orthopedic 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, and revision spine surgery for the treatment of failed back syndrome or previous spinal deformity surgeries that require further surgical intervention.

He frequently utilizes vertebral body tethering (VBT) for anterior scoliosis correction when treating patients with scoliosis as a flexible alternative to traditional fusion surgery and was the first surgeon in NJ to utilize the first 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,” he says.

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.
