Meet Rudolph F. Taddonio, MD

A practicing orthopedic surgeon since 1976, Dr. Taddonio has built a reputation as one of the most respected orthopedic surgeons for spinal deformity and complex reconstructive spine surgery in the metro New York/Hudson Valley and Connecticut area. On the forefront of advances in scoliosis treatment, he was one of 40 spinal surgeons throughout the United States to refine ScoliScore, a groundbreaking genetic test designed to predict the risk of progression of scoliosis, an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine.

 

Dr. Taddonio is a leader in state-of-the-art surgical techniques, including minimally invasive, motion sparing, and disc replacement surgery, and he is the first practitioner in the tri-state area to use image-guided (stereotactic) surgery. Stereotactic imaging improves the accuracy of spinal instrumentation, leading to safer surgery with decreased neurological complications.

 

In addition to serving as Director of Scoliosis and Spinal Surgery at New York Medical College, he is Director of Orthopedics at Stamford Hospital. Dr. Taddonio is a clinical professor of orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery at New York Medical College and an assistant clinical professor of surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Much in demand for his expertise, he has given more than 100 academic presentations around the world and has published dozens of journal articles and abstracts. He founded Scoliosis and Spinal Surgery in 1981.
