Dr. Jay Reidler is an adult and pediatric spine surgeon who cares deeply about
helping those with spine conditions return to the activities that they love.
Dr. Reidler attended Harvard University for his undergraduate studies and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Neurobiology. He received his MD from Harvard Medical School and his MPH from Harvard School of Public Health, concentrating in Healthcare Management and Policy. He completed orthopaedic surgery residency at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, followed by the adult and pediatric spine surgery fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital/Columbia University.
Dr. Reidler also received specialized fellowship training at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, where he completed a dedicated complex pediatric spine surgery fellowship, as well as the University of Pennsylvania, where he trained in minimally invasive techniques and innovative approaches for treating complex adult spinal conditions. He has trained with both Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical leaders in the field of spine surgery, including the former Presidents of the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS), Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS), North American Spine Society (NASS), and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).
Passionate about caring for both adults and children, Dr. Reidler treats the full spectrum of spinal disorders from common disc herniations and sciatica to complex disorders of the neck and back such as scoliosis and conditions requiring revision surgery. He listens carefully to the concerns of patients and their family members and collaborates closely with other specialists involved in their care. Dr. Reidler personalizes treatment to each patient’s unique goals and will only recommend surgery when less invasive options are not succeeding. When offering surgery, his specialized experience in both minimally invasive and complex surgical techniques enables him to offer a wide range of innovative treatment options.
Dr. Reidler is an active member of multiple spine surgical societies including the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, North American Spine Society, and AO Spine, and he is a candidate fellow of the Scoliosis Research Society. He has presented at national and international spine surgery conferences and published in leading medical journals and textbooks. He is particularly interested in improving safety and outcomes in spine surgery using advanced intraoperative navigation and robotic technologies.
