The doctors that work at Atlantic Spine Specialists include Dr. Carl Giodano and Dr. Richard Nachwalter. Dr. Giordano and Dr. Nachwalter perform their procedures at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, New Jersey, a Spine Center of Excellence. This facility is one of only a few hospitals to earn this distinction from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Their doctors were instrumental in establishing Morristown Medical Center as a recognized center of excellence in spine surgery. This was a hospital and doctor effort to improve the care of spine patients through the establishment of a team approach to care. There is a dedicated spine unit with the dedicated nursing staff. It is an ongoing patient-centered process that is evaluated and re-certified every 2 years by JCAHO. This ongoing process ensures that our patients continue to receive the best care possible.
In this facility, there is excellent equipment and excellent personnel. The equipment must be state-of-the-art operating instruments including microscopes and the latest technologies available, include instrumentation used for spine surgery. The facility also needs to include proper recovery rooms and patient rooms to allow postoperative care to be of the highest level. The personnel required at a Spine Center of Excellence must include anesthesiologists, nursing staff and surgeons of the highest caliber. The facility’s operation must anticipate that surgery is being performed with a great enough frequency, allowing anesthesiologists, nursing staff and surgeons to all work in a coordinated fashion providing the highest level of care.
