DR. JONATHAN GRAUER specializes in spine care at Yale Orthopaedics, where he is co-director of the orthopedic spine service and an associate professor. He graduated summa cum laude from Tufts University (Phi Beta Kappa) and cum laude from Yale School of Medicine (Alpha Omega Alpha). He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital and did a fellowship in spine surgery at Thomas Jefferson University’s Rothman Institute. He has been published prolifically in medical journals and textbooks and lectures frequently at regional, national and international meetings.
Dr. Grauer meets his patients’ individual needs through comprehensive evaluations and leading-edge treatments with proven benefits. He helps patients of all ages recover from a variety of spinal conditions, including disc and degenerative problems, acute injuries, scoliosis, tumors and neurological deficits. Treatment must be “patient-specific and targeted” to help sufferers achieve active, pain-free lifestyles, he says. Nonsurgical treatments are often the best avenue, but in certain cases surgery can offer great advantages. He says, “Surgery may be very helpful for certain problems if other treatments have not been successful.” When surgery is recommended, often it is to decompress the nerves or spinal cord or to stabilize the spine. He sees patients for primary spine issues, but many patients are also referred to him by other doctors for further attention, a second opinion or revision. He has many patients whose cases are unique and challenging, and the treatments he and his integrated team provide can be, he says, “life-improving for them.”
His practice is based at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and he sees patients in the Yale Department of Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation’s main office in New Haven and at its satellite office in Guilford.
