Dr. Joseph will impress you. In my opinion he is a highly skilled surgeon who knows what to do and say to help you feel completely confident that the procedure will be a success. Post op he quickly and capably assessed patient needs and abilities in order to optimize the discharge plan and get his patient on track for return to normal living.

Dr. Joseph diagnosed my cervical spine issue & first treated w/steroidal injections. When that gave no relief, he recommended surgery. I had my surgery on May 24. Prior to the surgery my quality of life was greatly diminished because of the incredible pain I was in. Even strong pain meds did not help. Post-surgery, I IMMEDIATELY felt relief from the pain. It feels like a miracle. The aftercare from Dr Joseph and his staff is wonderful. I will go for my final checkup in August 2016.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Joseph. He was recommended to me as the best surgeon in town, and I truly believe that after how I am feeling now that I have had surgery. I could not be more grateful to have found such a great doctor.

I would recommend Dr. Joseph. He is excellent at determining what is wrong and correting it quickly anc permanently. I was in agony for 8mos. He did surgery and fixed the issue. I am recovering well and am very pleased with the outcome. Don't go in looking for a shoulder to cry on. This surgeon is busy and focused. Have your information and questions ready and hd will answer them.

I have been treating with this office for over a year. During this time, they have X-rayed the wrong parts of my body, spelled my name wrong for post-op prescriptions/medical forms and been cursed out by the medical assistant. Last but not least, my procedure required stitches to be removed a few weeks after the procedure. The office rescheduled my appointment numerous times - to the point that my stitches eventually grew into my skin, and thus having to

I am a 54 year old male who went to Dr. Joseph after meeting with several other surgeons. All the surgeons I saw agreed that I needed a 2 level fusion at L4 and L5-S1. I was referred to Dr. Joseph from a friend who also had a successful surgery with him. Dr. Joseph and his staff are very professional and efficient. Dr. Joseph explained exactly what my issues were and how he planned to correct them. My surgery turned out even better than I expected and I can't thank Dr. Joseph enough.

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.
