Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Casden "Dr Andrew Casden is Chief of Orthopedics and Spine Surgery at White Plains Hospital located in Westchester, New York. Dr. Casden's surgical specialization includes treatment of herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and degenerative disease of the spine. He has extensive experience in the field of spinal deformity, including scoliosis and kyphosis in both children and adults, and is a member of the Scoliosis Research Society. He also has expertise in minimally invasive spinal surgery (or MISS), which can now be used to treat a great number of conditions in place of traditional spinal surgery.  While surgery may be required, Dr. Casden also works closely with the physiatrist in his office in order to prescribe a non-surgical treatment that can be highly effective at relieving patient symptoms. Non-operative treatment, including epidural injections, are performed in his office by the physiatrist. "

Patient Comments (7)

I went for a consultation. I first met with his staff who were very friendly. Dr. Casden came in and told me he doesn't perform miracles and then walked out. Not a word about my MRI, not a single question about my symptoms. I am still very upset by his lack of compassion and disregard for me.

This doctor spent about 3 seconds listening to my problems and barely examining me and declared that he couldn't help me because he believed my problem was in my shoulder, not my spine, and he "only does spines." I saw a far better doctor later the same day who sent me for an MRI and surprise! The...more
