Biography

Dr. Sravisht Iyer is a spine surgeon specializing in the application of minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat and manage spinal conditions involving the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spines. Dr. Iyer believes strongly in working with his patients to identify and deploy surgical techniques that provide a durable long-term outcome while minimizing postoperative pain and optimizing recovery time. Dr. Iyer completed his undergraduate training in biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins University where he was inducted into the Tau Beta Pi honor society. He subsequently attended Harvard Medical School – receiving an MD with honors (Magna Cum Laude) and a specialized degree in Health Sciences in Technology with coursework at Harvard and MIT. He completed his orthopedic residency at HSS followed by a fellowship at Rush University Medical Center. Dr. Iyer has also had the opportunity to travel internationally to learn specialized techniques in spinal surgery including time spent with Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei at the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital in Accra, Ghana. Dr. Iyer strongly believes in advancing the field of spine surgery. His research interest in spine surgery began in medical school where he published and presented award-winning research on the biomechanics of the spine. Dr. Iyer has since completed a research fellowship at HSS, spending a year in the lab to improve patient outcomes and pain control following spinal procedures. His work has been presented and honored at several national and international conferences and has since appeared in the pages of prestigious peer-reviewed journals including Spine, Neurosurgery, and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. At HSS, he has received several honors, including the HSS Academic Achievement Award, the Weill Cornell Medical Center Distinguished Housestaff Award, the Eduardo A.
