Stamford Hospital, the flagship hospital of Stamford Health, and Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) have entered into a collaborative agreement to create the premier center for specialty orthopedic care in New England.
HSS has been nationally ranked #1 for orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report for the past eight consecutive years, and is the world's leading academic medical center focused solely on musculoskeletal health.
Dr. Taddonio brings more to the table than almost any orthopedic surgeon in the entire Tri-State area. A practicing orthopedic spinal surgeon since 1976, Dr. Taddonio has built a reputation as one of the most respected spinal surgeons in the Tri-State area.
On the forefront of advances in scoliosis treatment, he was one of forty spinal surgeons and back specialists throughout the United States to refine ScoliScore, a groundbreaking genetic test designed to predict the risk of progression of scoliosis, an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. ScoliScore analyzes the DNA of patients who are diagnosed with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, the most common type of scoliosis.
His experience as a spinal surgeon encompasses caring for over 6000 surgical patients, with a broad range of problems. These include those requiring minimally invasive approaches to the most complex reconstructive problems in scoliosis correction and failed back disorders.
In addition to serving as Director of Scoliosis and Spinal Surgery at New York Medical College, he is Director of Orthopedic Surgery at Stamford Hospital. Dr. Taddonio is a clinical professor of orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery at New York Medical College and an assistant clinical professor of surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Much in demand for his expertise, he has given more than 100 academic presentations around the world and has published dozens of journal articles and abstracts. He founded Scoliosis and Spinal Surgery, PC in 1981.
