About The Institute For
Advanced Reconstruction

When traditional treatments aren't enough, our experts go above and beyond in pursuit of better care. We specialize in treating complex conditions — including traumatic injuries and diseases that cause debilitating pain and interfere with daily living. By staying at the forefront of medical research and innovation, we are helping to create new and improved pathways forward for patients who once believed they were out of options.

Patient-Focused Care

Our commitment to the patient experience distinguishes the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction from other care centers.

While we pride ourselves on modern treatments, the heart of our mission centers on patient care. We invest in people, not merely their medical concerns, and work to heal physical discomfort as well as emotional pain. To that end, we take time to understand your concerns and goals.

Working together to create a customized treatment plan that maximizes your health and wellness.

To enhance your comfort, we perform many of our reconstructive procedures at our private, state-of-the-art surgical facility, The Center for Outpatient Surgery. Our surgery center is New Jersey State Licensed and Medicare Accredited, and accredited according to the standards of the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF).

Axon Advance Foundation

Having a spinal cord injury or peripheral nerve damage often means living with limited functionality and pain. The Axon Advance Foundation aims to change this.

Established in 2012 by doctors at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, the Axon Advance Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on new horizons in research, innovation, and surgical treatments for peripheral nerve damage and spinal cord injury.

The Foundation works closely with the W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers University and its focus on spinal cord injury. From bench top to clinical research, the goal of the Foundation is to improve treatment options for patients.

At Axon Advance Foundation, we are proud to join the medical community in spearheading life-changing discoveries and procedures for those living with various forms of paralysis, nerve disorders, and spinal cord injury.

The
ARSA Difference

We are proud to be a part of the Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Alliance (ARSA). Working with ARSA empowers our team to focus unencumbered on what matters most – our patients. As a member of ARSA, our reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons benefit from an adaptive business environment with infrastructure, marketing, and the level of excellence that enables them to concentrate on the business of providing extraordinary clinical services.
