 Dr. Isador Lieberman is a fellowship trained orthopedic spine surgeon who has spent more than a dozen years performing complex spine surgeries and sharing his knowledge of the spine through research, philanthropy and teaching. He specializes in the surgical treatment of spinal disorders. He is committed to "providing the most appropriate and least invasive treatment for the spinal pathology at hand." His clinical interests include: adolescent and adult scoliosis, deformity reconstruction, spinal tumors, minimally invasive and robotic spinal surgery, cervical and lumbar degenerative disorders, including herniated discs and stenosis, spinal tumors, infections and spinal trauma.

Dr. Lieberman was instrumental in the development of the SpineAssist surgical robot. The SpineAssist technology can be used in biopsies, to treat thoracic-lumbar fusion and vertebral compression fractures, and to correct scoliosis; it is the latest in advanced spine and orthopedic surgical technology. In addition to increasing precision, it reduces the amount of radiation exposure during surgery, which can reduce infection and pain after surgery, give fewer complications, allow a shorter hospital stay and result in a quicker recovery for patients. SpineAssist is a workstation that enables a surgeon to pre-plan procedures in 3D based on the patient’s individual anatomy, creating a surgical blueprint. A robotic arm guides the surgeon during the procedure using the preoperative plan. During surgery, the robot’s extension arm guides the surgeon to the pre-planned location, allowing the surgeon to operate through small incisions in the skin and underlying muscles in order to reach the exact location on the spine.
