The skill and expertise of board-certified orthopedic surgeons Dr. Mark Drzala and Dr. Mitchell Reiter bring gold-standard surgical and
nonsurgical care to patients throughout the region. Fellowship trained in spine surgery, they provide life-changing options for chronic neck
and back pain, and spinal disorders resulting from disc degeneration, herniations, deformities, trauma, tumors and infections.
Utilizing only the most advanced and proven treatments available, Drs. Drzala and Reiter o;er the latest in clinical care. “We use cutting-
edge techniques, such as disk replacement, which speeds recovery and preserves motion in the spine,” says Dr. Drzala, who shares this
knowledge as a clinical assistant professor at Rutgers NJ Medical School. “For chronic sacroiliac pain, we implant biomechanical devices
through a minimally invasive procedure that stabilizes painful sacroiliac joints.”
Highly conservative by nature, Drs. Drzala and Reiter, along with Dr. Heidi Hullinger, emphasize thorough patient evaluation and
education. “We include patients in decision making and consider surgery only as a last resort,” says Dr. Reiter, who serves as president
of the New Jersey Orthopaedic Society and vice president of the New Jersey Spine Surgery Society.
