Dr. Dan Riew, an internationally recognized expert in cervical spine disorders, has joined the faculty of the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center. Dr. Riew, an orthopedic surgeon who has limited his practice entirely to the cervical spine, will see patients at the Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Comprehensive Spine Care and perform surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Riew has expertise in minimally invasive procedures and has advanced skills in deformity corrections and complex revision surgeries to the neck.  

A longtime faculty member at the NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital at the Allen Hospital at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Dr. Riew served as the Director of Cervical Spine Surgery as well as co-chief of the Spine Division of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and co-director of the Adult and Pediatric Comprehensive Spine Fellowship.

“With Dr. Riew’s addition, this team has more experience in the cervical spine than anywhere in the world,” says Dr. Philip Stieg, Chairman of the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center. “Bringing his orthopedic expertise to the Spine Center adds an insurmountable edge when it comes to the breadth of skills offered there.” 

“We welcome Dr. Riew and his expertise and reputation in cervical spine surgery,” says Dr. Roger Härtl, Director of the Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Comprehensive Spine Care. “The addition of Dr. Riew to our team further underscores the immense talent that we have here at the Center for Comprehensive Spine Care.”

Dr. Riew’s skill has been recognized over the past 20 years with placements in lists of Best Doctors in America, America’s Top Doctors, New York SuperDoctors, and Top 25 Spine Surgeons in North America by Orthopedics This Week.
