About Dr. Paragioudakis


Leading-edge treatment is the cornerstone of
this comprehensive spine care practice led by
board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic
surgeon Dr. Steve Paragioudakis.

Using proven, conservative methods to help people return to active and fulfilling lifestyles,we offer the full range of diagnostics, non operative care, complex revision surgery and minimally invasive solutions for back pain and spine disorders.

Our mission is to provide effective and compassionate care for every patient, we take time to understand
the root cause of a patient’s condition and to create an individualized treatment plan for optimal results.

Our practice specializes in congenital, acute
and chronic disorders of the spine, including
sprains and strains, degenerative disc disease,
disc herniation, trauma, sports-related injuries,
tumors, infections and scoliosis. “We are at
the forefront of minimally invasive surgical
techniques, and we educate our patients about
their condition and talk with them about their
options,” says Dr. Menkowitz, noting that the
practice also has expertise in revision spinal
surgery and provides non–spine-related
orthopedic care.

Drs. Menkowitz and Paragioudakis, who are
repeat New Jersey Monthly Top Doctors, are
affiliate faculty members at Drexel University.

surgery residency program at Monmouth
