“I love asking patients the right questions so that we can find the right answers for them.”

Dr. Arthur L. Jenkins III is the founder of Jenkins NeuroSpine, a practice focused on improving the lives of patients suffering from spinal conditions. 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.

In his prior role as co-director of the Neurosurgery Spine Program and director of both the Spinal Oncology and the Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery (MIS) programs at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, he developed new treatments and techniques that benefit patients suffering from complicated spinal diagnosis and back pain. 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. He recently left the full-time faculty at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where he still retains “voluntary” faculty status, teaching the next generation of residents and students of all ages.

Dr. Jenkins founded Jenkins NeuroSpine so that he could use all the lessons he learned practicing the most advanced medicine in the world in order to bring the benefits of using the latest in technology and evidence-based medicine techniques to all patients. 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 and the NFL Retired Players Program, and an Honorary Police Surgeon for the New York Police Department.

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.
