Clinical Research Fellowship in Spine Surgery

You are here

The Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine is proud to offer a clinical research fellowship in spine surgery. The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Roger Härtl, Professor of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine and chief of spinal surgery and neurotrauma at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center. The research involves biological treatment approaches and tissue-engineering for degenerative disc disease.

The fellowship, which is a one- or two-year position, offers intensive, full-time training in clinical research in minimally invasive spine surgery to a candidate who has successfully completed an accredited residency training program in neurological surgery or orthopedic surgery. Fellows participate in research projects with the Weill Cornell spine team.

The spine team at Weill Cornell specializes in minimally invasive surgical treatment for a wide range of spine conditions, including:

  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal compression fractures
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Radiculopathy
  • Spondylolisthesis
