Dr. Casden's surgical specialization includes treatment of herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and degenerative disease of the spine. He has extensive experience in the field of spinal deformity, including scoliosis and kyphosis in both children and adults, and is a member of the Scoliosis Research Society. He also has expertise in minimally invasive spinal surgery (or MISS), which can now be used to treat a great number of conditions in place of traditional spinal surgery. Minimally invasive procedures offer an equally effective result with a briefer hospital stay, a faster and more comfortable recovery period, and a quicker return to work. While surgery may be required, Dr. Casden also works closely with the physiatrist in his office in order to prescribe a non-surgical treatment that can be highly effective at relieving patient symptoms. Non-operative treatment, including epidural injections, are performed in his office by the physiatrist. His approach also focuses on thorough consultations with the patient as well as other physicians in order to personalize a treatment plan. Dr. Casden was the Associate Director of the Spine Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center and subsiquently practiced at Mount Sinai in New York City. He is now Chief of Orthopaedics and Spine Surgery at White Plains Hospital, located in White Plains, New York.
