Newton Medical Center Launches Orthopedic Spine, Welcomes Surgeon

Abhijeet Kadam, MD

Newton Medical Center (NMC) is excited to announce that orthopedic spine services will now be available on the NMC campus.

“Over the past two years, we’ve seen a growth in area patients needing orthopedic spine services,” said Heather Porter, chief clinical officer at NMC. “By introducing this new service at NMC, we hope to improve health in our community by helping patients remain close to home when they need specialized care for neck and back pain.”

To lead the new spine service, NMC welcomes orthopedic spine surgeon, Abhijeet Kadam, MD. Dr. Kadam will join Newton Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in September.

“Dr. Kadam’s extensive training and experience in orthopedic spine care will be a great addition to NMC,” said Alex Haines, vice president of clinic operations. “Dr. Kadam has been highly involved in the process of launching the new spine service and we’re excited to bring his comprehensive education and surgical training to Newton.”

Dr. Kadam obtained his medical degree and completed orthopedic residency at the top-rated Lokmanya Tilak Medical College & General Hospital in Mumbai, India. His desire for academic and clinical excellence motivated him to come to the United States to pursue clinical research in spine surgery at the Rothman Institute & Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Dr. Kadam then went on to complete three years of intensive clinical training in orthopedic spine surgery, in the form of fellowships, at some of the most premier academic centers on the east coast: Pennsylvania Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Boston University Medical Center and MedStar Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore.

Additionally, to encompass general orthopedics and arthroscopy in his practice, Dr. Kadam completed another fellowship in Sports medicine at Jefferson Health, in the greater Philadelphia metropolitan region.

Dr. Kadam is well versed in state of the art techniques involving spinal navigation, robotics and the use of neuromonitoring to enhance patient safety in spine surgery. He strongly believes in following a patient-centered approach, thus empowering patients to make the best decisions about their care.

Orthopedic spine services at NMC will include surgical and non-surgical treatment options. More information is available at newtonmed.com/spine.

Dr. Kadam will begin seeing patients September 30. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Kadam, call Newton Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at 316-283-9977.
