Frank Schwab is the Chief of Spine service at the Hospital for Special Surgery and a Professor of Clinical Orthopaedic surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr Schwab served as the Chief of Spinal Deformity at New York University Langone Medical Center-Hospital for Joint Diseases for over 8 years. His clinical practice focuses on complex spinal pathology, adult spinal deformity and revision reconstruction procedures. He is widely recognized as a leader in the field and has pioneered many aspects of spinal deformity care, especially for patients with extensive surgical histories. Dr. Schwab is focused on innovating patient-specific operative treatment, optimizing sagittal realignment guidelines, emphasizing the use of pre-operative planning technologies and techniques for complex spine surgery. In concert with patient care, he developed the first definitive classification of adult spinal deformity that has become a clinical standard
