Dr. Joseph Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Joseph Jr "Dr. Samuel A. Joseph Jr. completed his Bachelors of Science Degree at the University of Akron in two years with honors, and received his medical degree from the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, graduating at the top of his class. His training in general and orthopaedic surgery was completed at the Stony Brook University Medical Center in New York. Dr. Joseph went on to train in one of the most prestigious spine fellowship programs under the direction of Dr. Michael Neuwirth at the Spine Institute of New York. There he specialized in scoliosis, as well as a multitude of degenerative disorders of the cervical and lumbar spine, with emphasis on revision surgeries. Dr. Joseph's practice includes the specialized, conservative, and surgical care of patients. Treatment includes therapeutic injections, disc replacement surgery, minimally invasive techniques, and complex reconstruction of adult and pediatric spinal disorders. Dr. Joseph is also among a select group of surgeons to offer cutting edge regenerative injection therapy. Dr. Joseph has used his training and experience to become a leader nationwide on revision surgery for patients who have experienced failed surgery in the past. These patients have traveled to see Dr. Joseph not only from the Tampa Bay area, but from other areas of Florida and across the country as well. Dr. Joseph is active in teaching his minimally invasive techniques, complex scoliosis procedures and revision strategies to surgeons across the United States, as well as internationally, including China, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine and Switzerland. Dr. Joseph has published numerous articles in neurosurgical and orthopaedic spine journals. His research on scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, and spinal surgery in the elderly has been presented at many international meetings including the International Meeting for Advanced Spinal Techniques. He has active privileges at Memorial Hospital in Tampa, Mease Countryside Hospital in Safety Harbor, and sees patients at our offices in those cities, as well as at our office in St. Petersburg. He has developed a minimally invasive outpatient spinal surgery program at Advanced Surgery Center of Tampa to provide state of the art, current care to the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Joseph and his family are active members of the Tampa Bay community. They have taken a special interest in the Make a Wish Foundation, and its goal of granting wishes and making life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. He also lends his time to the Butterfly Foundation, which brings deformity focused spine surgeons and comprehensive teams to developing countries to teach local spine surgeons through didactics, work-shops, and surgery on local patients."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Joseph Jr "At Joseph Spine, we know that each patient's circumstance is unique and it is important to evaluate each individual with that in mind.  Personalized attention, open communication, and collaboration is the cornerstone to achieving a customized spine treatment plan designed for optimal results for each patient.

Non-surgical spine procedures are always explored to relieve back pain and correct disorders, but when non-surgical options don't prove effective, Dr. Joseph will employ minimally invasive procedures, stem cell therapy, and customized treatment plans.

Minimally invasive spine surgery allows us to provide maximum pain relief with minimal recovery time, all while increasing mobility and accelerating our patients' return to regular activities."
