About Mark Drzala

Drs. Heidi Hullinger and Mark Drzala are both board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons who evaluate and provide comprehensive treatment to individuals with disorders of the spine. They both serve as clinical assistant professors at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

Together with colleagues Dr. Mitchell Reiter and Dr. Ilya Kupershtein, these elite surgeons provide their patients with the most modern and clinically proven treatments that are currently available. They are highly conservative physicians with extensive experience in their field.

“We provide our patients with the latest treatment options and technological advances that have been validated,” says Dr. Drzala. “Robotic surgery has proven to be very effective in spine surgery and is especially useful when implanting instrumentation such as screws. Incisions are smaller, which results in less tissue disruption, less pain, and quicker recovery times.”

“As a group, we are very patient focused and tailor treatments for each individual,” says Dr. Hullinger, one of the few female spine surgeons in New Jersey. “We try to preserve motion whenever possible with procedures such as cervical disc replacements instead of fusing the spine.”

The doctors at New Jersey Spine Specialists treat the full spectrum of spine disorders, including disc herniations, degenerative disease, deformities, trauma, scoliosis, and tumors. Their offices are conveniently located in Summit and Montclair.
