For patients with neck or back problems, we serve as a one-stop medical headquarters,” says board-certified neurological surgeon
Dr. Rajnik Raab, who co-founded North Jersey Spine Group in 2006. “We triage and treat people with disabling disease, helping them
regain their lives.” Patients can get a complete range of spine care—physical therapy, pain management, surgery, or some combination—
within this practice, which Dr. Raab shares with Dr. David Sundstrom and Dr. Monte Haber. Their group, the only spine center in New Jersey
to be designated a Center of Excellence by Spine Center Network, is respected for its customized care, conservative approach and successful outcomes.
A specialist in neurological trauma, degenerative disorders and tumors, Dr. Raab, finds it critical to specifically diagnose the cause of
someone’s pain and disability. For most patients, targeted exercise and physical therapy can reduce pain and increase mobility. Some people require pain medication. Dr. Raab recommends surgery in only about 5 percent of cases. “We perform complex operations on a routine
basis, but we never forget that surgery is a life-altering event for patients and families,” he says.
Dr. Raab currently serves as president of the New Jersey Neurosurgical Society. This is his second New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor honor.
His greatest reward is when patients say, “Thank you for giving me my life back!”
