Peter D. Angevine, MD, MPH

Department of Neurological Surgery

Dr. Angevine is a member of the Spine Center at the Columbia University Medical Center. He has received specialized fellowship training in the evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adult spinal deformities.

Dr. Angevine's unusual training reflects his belief that a surgeon with the most comprehensive training is best able to treat spinal disorders effectively. After completing his residency in neurological surgery at The Neurological Institute of New York, Dr. Angevine became the first neurosurgeon to be admitted to and complete the prestigious fellowship in spine surgery at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis emphasizing the operative treatment of complex spinal deformities. As a result of this training he brings to each patient the expertise necessary to evaluate and, if required, treat disorders of spinal alignment such as scoliosis or sagittal imbalance.

Dr. Angevine's special interests include Adult and Pediatric Spinal Deformities, Neuromuscular Spinal Deformities, Complex Revision Spinal Surgery and Global and Regional Sagittal Imbalance.

Special interests include congenital scoliosis; infantile and juvenile idiopathic scoliosis; adolescent idiopathic scoliosis; Scheuermann's kyphosis; neuromuscular scoliosis, including neurofibromatosis; cerebral palsy, Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy; adult idiopathic scoliosis; adult degenerative scoliosis; sagittal imbalance/flatback deformity; spinal column tumors; postlaminectomy cervical kyphosis; and complex thoracolumbar revision surgery.
