Dr. Shiveindra Jeyanohan is a graduate of the Thomas Jefferson University Medical College where he received a medical degree. He then completed his internship and residency training in neurosurgery at Albany Medical Center with an enfolded fellowship in spine surgery. From there, Dr. Jeyamohan completed an advanced, combined orthopedic and neurosurgical fellowship in Complex and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery at Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, WA, where he received extensive training with emphasis in adult reconstructive, deformity, and revision surgery.
Dr. Jeyamohan, a New Jersey native, returns home after 5 years of practice in Seattle, pioneering minimally invasive and lateral techniques in addition to hybrid for even the most complex cases. He served as Chief of Surgery as well. He is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
Dr. Jeyamohan has published and presented in the fields of spine surgery and neurological surgery. His clinical areas of interest are Adult spine surgery, Deformity, Scoliosis, Complex Spinal Reconstruction and Degenerative Conditions, and Minimally invasive Spine Surgery.
