About Our Practice

Dr. Mark Drzala is a board certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic spine surgeon and has been in practice since 1998. Thorough patient evaluation and a focus on education is the hallmark of Dr. Drzala’s practice. While certain conditions have absolute indications for spinal surgery, Dr. Drzala is conservative by nature and typically exhausts non-operative treatment options, whenever possible, before considering surgical intervention. Patients participate fully in the decision-making process regarding their care with treatment regimens tailored to meet each background-origin: Dr. Drzala is a leader in providing state-of-the-art technologies to his patients, which he does safely. Using a cutting-edge reconstructive procedure known as total disc arthroplasty, Dr. Mark Drzala is among the very few in his field who replaces damaged discs with artificial implants to eliminate chronic neck and arm pain. The procedure offers several benefits over spinal fusion, which has been the main surgical approach for treating slipped discs, pinched nerves and disc degeneration. Having embraced cervical disc replacement surgery shortly after its FDA approval in 2007, he continues to provide this procedure and other life changing surgical treatment options to his patients. As a spine surgeon, Dr. Drzala has published and lectured in the field of spine surgery and is active in multiple medical societies at both the state and national levels. He is a member of the North American Spine Society, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, New Jersey Spine Society, American Medical Association, Orthopedic Surgeons of New Jersey, Medical Society of New Jersey, and the Essex County Medical Society, where he served as a counselor. Dr. Drzala is affiliated with Overlook Hospital in Summit New Jersey, University Hospital in Newark New Jersey, St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, and with Hackensack University Medical Center- Mountainside Hospital in Montclair New Jersey and Morristown Medical Center. He presently serves as secretary on the Medical Executive Committee. Dr. Drzala has been recognized and elected by his peers as a top doctor in his specialty in New Jersey Monthly for twelve consecutive years. In addition, he has also received recognition as a Best Doctor for nine consecutive years by Inside Jersey Magazine and by Castle Connolly.
