About Mitchell F. Reiter

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

Together with their colleague Dr. Ilya Kupershtein, these elite surgeons provide 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 advancesthat have been validated,” says Dr. Drzala. “Our focus is on using minimally invasive techniques that result in less tissue disruption, reduced pain, and quicker recoveries,” says Dr. Reiter.

“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.
