The Spine program

The spine team consists of neurosurgeons who work in close collaboration with orthopedic surgeons on cases of metastatic and primary tumours of the spine. The surgeons at the Jewish General Hospital are specialized in both minimally invasive and complex open procedures for spinal disorders (Neurosurgeon: Jeff Golan, MD; Orthopedic Surgeon: Peter Jarzem, MD)


Spinal Endoscopy at the Jewish General Hospital

The Jewish General Hospital, a member facility of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, continues to innovate in the field of surgery. This time, it’s neurosurgeon Dr. Jeff Golan, an Associate Professor at McGill University and founder of the Canadian Spine Institute, who treats some of his patients with a procedure called spinal endoscopy. This is a first in Quebec.
