About me

Dr. Weiner is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in spine surgery. His areas of special interest and expertise include:

  • Adult spinal deformities
  • Pediatric scoliosis/vertebral body tethering
  • Degenerative disorders and arthritis of the spine
  • Disc replacement and minimally invasive spine fusion

Dr. Weiner has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and presented at conferences and scientific meetings.

He takes a conservative approach to patient care and focuses on non-surgical treatment options before recommending surgery. When surgery is the most appropriate path, he works with a multidisciplinary team to ensure patients’ needs are met and they have the support they need from diagnosis through surgery and recovery. Dr. Weiner works with all of his patients to provide them with the information they need to be active partners in decisions about their care.

When he’s not working, Dr. Weiner enjoys spending time with his family, doing home improvement projects, and playing golf.
