About Awad, John

DR. JOHN N. AWAD graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in engineering. He worked for a year as an engineer in medical devices and then went on to earn his medical degree from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He did his internship in general surgery and residency in orthopaedic surgery at world renowned Johns Hopkins University Hospital. He also completed a fellowship in spine surgery at the New York University Medical Center and NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. He is fascinated with the spine because it is one of the most demanding areas, he says. We still dont have all the answers. Its a challenge every day trying to figure out diagnoses and new treatments. Every patient is different, and he treats those who suffer from an array of conditions ranging from simple problems to the most difficult ones. He specializes in spine problems with cervical spine being his passion. He approaches each patients care thoroughly and in a methodical manner, addressing every issue. My goal is trying to use the least invasive methods to treat my patients before considering a surgical route, he says. Surgery doesnt help everyone. A lot of patients can be treated non-operatively, and he initiates their care and engages a multidisciplinary approach that includes several specialists. Nevertheless, he says, With the right surgery for the right patient for the right indication, patients can do very well. He collaborates with doctors and exceptional spine teams at both St. Vincents Medical Center and Bridgeport Hospital. It took a lot of time and effort to build the team, he says of the dedicated staff. In his practice at Orthopaedic Specialty Group, there is a multi disciplinary spine and orthopaedic team including physical therapy, a surgical center and a walk-in center named Orthofast for people who need to be seen emergently for any orthopaedic care.
