Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Rafael Levin prides himself on seeing all of his patients personally, taking time to get to know
them before deciding on a course of care. “I try to blend old-school patient relationships with cutting-edge techniques, to get the best possible outcomes for my patients,” he says. This dedication to personal relationships runs throughout the Comprehensive Spine Care o;ce—
phones are always answered by a person, not voice mail, during o;ce hours, and doctors can be reached 24 hours a day.
Dr. Levin, who is chief of spine surgery at HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley and chief of spine service at Hudson Crossing Surgery
Center, specializes in surgical and nonsurgical treatments for traumatic and degenerative spine conditions. His practice, which also includes
Dr. Nomaan Ashraf and Dr. Jonathan Lester, provides comprehensive, conservative spine care, with an emphasis on minimally invasive treatment whenever possible.
With particular pride in his ability to make a positive di;erence in someone’s life, Dr. Levin says, “I measure both my successes and failures by my surgical results. Nothing is more gratifying than a patient who has achieved pain relief, is restored to normalcy and has regained
quality of life after surgery.” Dr. Levin serves on the board of directors of the Jewish Home at Rockleigh.
