Get to Know Your Skilled Orthopaedic Surgeon

Marc S. Menkowitz, MD is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon and one of our expert care providers at the Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine, with locations in Shrewsbury, Toms River, and Edison, New Jersey.

"My philosophy is to treat all patients as I would want a doctor to treat my family.  My family is everything to me as I know my patient’s family is to them.  Our practice prides ourselves as boutique not a factory and will take our time to help diagnose and treat the patient’s pain.  Every patient is different and they deserve my full attention and compassion to help in every way I can."
