Dr. Jacob Januszewski

Dr. Jacob Januszewski received his undergraduate degree in 2005 from Kalamazoo College with a major in Biology. During college he spent 9 months on study abroad at Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Australia where he also worked with Alzheimer’s patients while writing his dissertation on socioeconomic factors in Alzheimer’s disease. After college he spent one year at Wayne State University studying the physiological, as well as the cellular and molecular, role of median nerve stimulation in cardioprotective properties. He received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2010.

Dr. Januszewski completed his neurosurgical residency in 2016 at North Shore – LIJ University Hospital, Northwell Health System on Long Island, NY. During residency he developed interest in developing and working with large database systems and contributed to several quality improvement clinical projects and publications. At that time he also became a strong believer in the positive role of physical activity and healthy lifestyle in a highly stressful neurosurgical profession. He became an avid long distance runner and a fitness enthusiast, which he believes contributes to a more balanced, fulfilling, and less stressful life.

After completing his residency, Dr. Januszewski spent one year of fellowship at the University of South Florida with one of the most world-renowned pioneers of Complex and Minimally Invasive Spine (MIS) surgery for spinal deformity, Dr. Juan S. Uribe. He is one of a few truly MIS surgeons in the country who can perform complex spine reconstruction with minimally invasive techniques minimizing blood loss, length of hospital stay, and recovery time.

During his fellowship he developed a strong interest in spinal biomechanics, adult spine deformity, scoliosis, and degenerative disc disease leading to spinal instability. He believes even the simplest of cases must be treated thoughtfully and correctly, with proper spinal mechanics in mind, to avoid future long-term complications of failed back syndrome. His energetic personality, strong work ethic, and dedication to the field allowed him to write over 21 scientific manuscripts on spinal deformity and 4 book chapters during his fellowship alone. He also performed over 14 podium presentations at national meetings, peer-reviewed over a dozen scientific manuscripts, facilitated development of a new Polish spine journal (Journal of Spinal Studies and Surgery) where he sits on the editorial board, and became an active member of American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), and Society of Lateral Access Surgeons (CNS). He is also a member of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS).

Dr. Januszewski is interested to lead in the field by closely working with organized neurosurgery, participating in product design and new technology development, and improving technique of MIS surgery to consistently improve his patients’ outcomes.
