  • Overview

    As a doctor trained in both minimally invasive and open approach surgery, Dr. Andrew Chan is very familiar with comprehensive spinal care. And eight years ago, he saw the future of spinal surgery when he joined a colleague in a minimally invasive lumbar procedure. Since then, he’s dedicated himself to performing and teaching minimally invasive spinal surgeries, improving the quality of life for his patients, and educating his residents on how to perform these procedures that minimize postoperative pain. Dr. Chan has fine-tuned several innovative surgical approaches, proving that a surgeon doesn’t necessarily have to perform large muscle dissections to correct spinal deformities, like scoliosis. His techniques provide surgical opportunities for patients who otherwise would not be spinal surgery candidates due to age or illness. Tune in with Dr. Andrew Chan, Co-Director of Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Surgery at Och Spine at NewYork-Presbyterian, for details on how he customizes care for his patients depending on their needs and shares hope for the future of spinal surgery.
