I am an orthopaedic surgeon in practice for six years. I have expertise in complex and advanced spinal surgery and have helped pioneer decompression and reconstructive surgical techniques, including minimally invasive techniques for scoliosis, as well as cervical and lumbar degenerative conditions.
I am also an expert in sports medicine, specializing in advanced arthroscopic surgery. I try to apply the concepts of sports medicine to spinal surgery by optimizing the use of minimally invasive surgery principles and rehabilitation strategies in order to help patients recover as quickly as possible.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Varma is not currently required to report Industry relationships.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website at http://icahn.mssm.edu/about-us/services-and-resources/faculty-resources/handbooks-and-policies/faculty-handbook. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
