Biography

Steven J. Fineberg, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, specializing in complex and minimally-invasive surgery of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. His focus is on the treatment of patients with both non-operative and operative approaches when indicated. He has extensive training in minimally-invasive surgical techniques, robotic spine surgery, and motion-preservation surgeries, such as artificial disc replacement. Dr. Fineberg also has a special interest in performing outpatient spine surgery by utilizing techniques that minimize pain, enhance recovery, and accelerate rehabilitation after surgery, in order to get patients back to their active lifestyles.

Dr. Fineberg attended the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in Israel, where he graduated as valedictorian. He went on to complete an internship in general surgery at The University of Colorado Medical Center, as well as a spine surgery research fellowship at Rush University in Chicago. He then completed his orthopedic residency training at New York Medical College, where he worked at a busy Level I regional trauma referral center that is known for treating the most severely injured orthopedic and spine patients in the northeastern United States. He returned to Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, where he completed a clinical spine surgery fellowship. During his fellowship, he learned from world-renowned leaders in the field to perform surgery on complex spinal pathologies using both traditional open as well as minimally-invasive techniques.

Dr. Fineberg is also an award-winning researcher. With an emphasis on patient safety and minimizing complications in spine surgery, his research has been presented more than 150 times at national and international conferences. He has also published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on minimally-invasive spine surgery.

Philosophy of Care

“Dedicated to advancing technologies, applications, and minimally-invasive surgical techniques, my goal is to further wellness and long-term health of my patients.”
