About Dr. Jenkins

Dr. Jenkins is a board certified Neurosurgeon and fellowship trained in complex spinal neurosurgery from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He has offices in Manhattan and Greenwich, Connecticut and practices the full spectrum of spinal surgery.

He is also the Director of the Spinal Oncology Program, and oversees the treatment of tumors that involve the nerves, spinal column, and spinal cord. A pioneer in utilizing minimally invasive spinal surgery (MIS) to remove spinal tumors, Dr. Jenkins invented the concept of treating spinal tumors using a minimally invasive approach. In addition to his work in removing spinal tumors, Dr. Jenkins performs decompression procedures, spinal fusions, artificial disk replacements, and works to correct spinal deformities and does complicated revision cases. An Assistant Professor in the Departments of Neurosurgery and Orthopaedic Surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Jenkins serves as the Co-director of the Mount Sinai Neurosurgery Spine Program, overseeing the expansion of the Spinal Surgery practice and is the Director of Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery.

In addition to serving patients of all ages, Dr. Jenkins has treated numerous professional athletes and entertainers, and police officers and firemen. He is an officially appointed neurosurgeon for the New York Jets, the NFL Retired Players Program and the New York Police Department.

Surgery can be optimized and made safer with a number of techniques, all of which Dr. Jenkins utilizes in his practice:

  • Dedicated neuroanesthesiologists experienced in complex cases
  • Dedicated Neurosurgical OR teams experienced in complex cases
  • Neurophysiological monitoring teams for spinal cord and root protection
  • Motor Evoked Potentials (MEP),
  • SomatoSensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP),
  • Electromyography (EMG) of limbs, trunk, and even sphincter muscles
  • Techniques to minimize blood loss
  • Intraoperative blood recycling
  • Superior intraoperative imaging to assess the correction and instrumentation
  • Operating microscopes and dedicated spinal OR tables
  • Where appropriate, computer guided navigation
  • Minimally invasive treatments:
  • Thoracosopic releasing diskectomies or vertebrectomies
  • Minimally invasive corrections
  • Lateral approaches to the lumbar spine
  • Differential interbody graft placement for lumbar scoliosis

Most importantly, Dr. Jenkins treats the patient, not the films.  He takes the time to listen, understand all aspects of the patient, and come up with a treatment plan tailored to each patient.
