About Our Practice

Dr. Jacob Januszewski is one of the leaders in the field of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) in Complex Adult Spine Deformity and Spine Reconstruction who is at the forefront of new, developing technology in spine surgery. He is specially trained to take care of even the most difficult cases in a minimally invasive fashion, tailored to each individual, minimizing blood loss, complications, and facilitating faster recovery. Dr. Januszewski received his undergraduate degree in 2005 from Kalamazoo College with a major in Biology. After college he spent one year of intensive research at Wayne State University studying the physiological, cellular, and molecular, roles of median nerve stimulation in cardioprotective properties. He received his medical degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2010. He completed his neurosurgical residency in 2016 at North Shore – LIJ University Hospital, Northwell Health System on Long Island, NY. During residency he developed interest in developing and working with large database systems and had written several quality improvement clinical manuscripts and publications. At that time he also became a strong believer in the positive role of physical activity and healthy lifestyle in a highly stressful neurosurgical profession. He became an avid long distance runner and a fitness enthusiast, which he believes contributes to a more balanced and fulfilling life. After completing his residency, Dr. Januszewski spent one year of fellowship at the University of South Florida with one of the most world-renowned pioneers in Complex and Minimally Invasive Spine (MIS) surgery for spinal deformity, Dr. Juan Uribe. He is one of a few truly MIS surgeons in the country who can perform complex spine reconstruction with minimally invasive techniques minimizing blood loss, length of hospital stay, and recovery time. During his fellowship he developed a strong interest in spinal biomechanics, adult spine deformity, scoliosis, and degenerative disc disease that leads to spinal instability. He believes even the simplest of cases must be treated thoughtfully and correctly, with proper spinal biomechanics in mind, to avoid future long-term complications of flat back or failed back syndrome. His energetic personality, strong work ethic, and dedication to the field allowed him to write over 21 scientific manuscripts on spinal deformity and 6 book chapters during his fellowship alone. He also performed over 14 podium presentations at national meetings, peer-reviewed over a dozen scientific manuscripts, facilitated development of a new spine journal (Journal of Spinal Studies and Surgery) where he sits on the editorial board, and became an active member of American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), and Society of Lateral Access Surgeons (CNS). He is also a member of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS). Dr. Januszewski will continue to lead in the field by closely working with organized neurosurgery, participating in product design and new technology development, and refine techniques of MIS surgery to consistently improve his patients’ outcomes. He specializes in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgery including: occipito-cervical junction instability, cervical disc herniations, stenosis; thoracic disc and calcified disc herniations, lumbar disc herniations and stenosis, SI joint disease, degenerative disc disease, adult spinal deformity and scoliosis, primary and metastatic disease to the spine.
