John M. Caridi, MD
Department of Neurosurgery
Dr. John Caridi, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, specializes in the treatment of complex spinal diseases requiring reconstruction of the vertebral column as well as minimally invasive approaches to common spine problems. He joined the Department of Neurosurgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in 2011 after completing a premier orthopedic Spine and Scoliosis Surgery Fellowship at The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Following the completion of this program, he spent three months learning cutting edge techniques from several spine surgery masters in Munich and Carlsbad, Germany. Prior to completing his fellowship, he was a visiting professor at the University of Maryland Medical Center and at the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center where he was involved in neurosurgery resident education. After receiving his MD from Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, he completed his neurosurgery residency training at the number one trauma center on the east coast, the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where he served as Chief Resident. During his training, he learned pediatric neurosurgery with some of the leading experts at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. Dr. Caridi has been invited as a guest lecturer to many courses on spine disease. He was also a visiting neurosurgeon at the Moi University Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya, where he was responsible for teaching local physicians and medical students, as well as providing services for the underprivileged. Currently he cares for patients with a wide range of spinal disorders, but specializes specifically in adult spinal deformity and spinal tumors. His research includes outcomes studies in patients with neurologic deficits secondary to spine pathology and studying radioactive seed implantation for metastatic spinal column tumors.
