Dr. Hwang serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the New York University School of Medicine and an attending spine surgeon at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center- a level 1 trauma center.
Dr. Hwang graduated with honors from the University of Rochester and received his Doctor of Medicine from UMDNJ - New Jersey Medical School. He then pursued an orthopaedic biomechanics research fellowship with a concentration in spinal disorders, which included clinical outcomes studies and computerized biomechanical evaluations of complex spinal deformities. He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Maimonides Medical Center where he also served as a chief resident. He completed an orthopaedic spinal surgery fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. He is board eligible in orthopaedic surgery and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Dr. Hwang's clinical practice is focused on the treatment of pediatric and adult spinal disorders including degenerative conditions of the spine (disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis), spinal trauma, complex revision surgeries (failed back and flatback), spinal deformities (scoliosis and kyphosis), and in the use of minimally invasive techniques.
Dr. Hwang's research interests include clinical outcomes studies to examine the aging population with spinal disorders, the biomechanics of spinal deformities, as well as the development of cutting edge technology for the treatment of various spinal disorders such as video-assisted micorendoscopic minimally invasive techniques.
Dr. Hwang believes that the goal of spinal care is to improve his patient's day-to-day function and to help make their lives as pain-free as possible. The majority of spine problems can be treated non-surgically. But when surgery is necessary, Dr. Hwang and his team of spine care specialists at the University Spine Center use the most up-to-date techniques to insure a quick and safe recovery.
