Dr. Radcliff is a fellowship-trained spine surgeon at Rothman Orthopaedics, practicing out of the offices in Egg Harbor Township, Manahawkin, and Princeton, New Jersey. He specializes in the latest techniques in spinal reconstruction, including minimally invasive spinal reconstruction procedures and artificial disk replacement.
Likewise, he holds the title of Professor with joint faculty appointments in orthopedic surgery and neurological surgery at Sidney Kimmel Medical College.
Educated in the United States, Dr. Radcliff completed his undergraduate education at Harvard University and medical school at Duke University School of Medicine. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the prestigious Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Following residency, he performed fellowship training in spine surgery and spinal cord injury at Thomas Jefferson University, widely considered to be one of the top orthopedic and neurosurgical spine fellowships in the world. He has also visited and operated with leading spine surgeons in the nation and around the world.
With extensive knowledge and experience that make him an exceptional doctor, Dr. Radcliff is board-certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.
An educator, Dr. Radcliff regularly teaches other surgeons at national and international meetings about safely and efficiently performing spine surgery, techniques and complication avoidance in minimally invasive spine surgery, orthopedic basic science, as well as spine trauma and spinal cord injury. He is also an active member of the Society for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery, the Lumbar Spine Research Society, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the North American Spine Society, the National Medical Association, and the J. Robert Gladden Orthopedic Society.
Professionally, he is incoming Chairman of the North American Spine Society Young Surgeons Forum, and President of the Association for Collaborative Spine Research. He is a regular invited faculty member at numerous national and international spine meetings, including the prestigious “Contemporary Techniques in Minimally Invasive Cervical and Lumbar Spine Surgery” course in St. Louis. He is also on the faculty at the Cervical Spine Research Society meeting, the Association for Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Joint Meeting on Spine, the North American Spine Society, and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Actively interested in exploring alternatives to traditional fusion surgery, Dr. Radcliff recently won the prestigious best paper award at an international meeting of cervical spine experts (Cervical Spine Research Society) for a study comparing cervical disk replacement and fusion.
Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
An international expert on diagnosis, nonsurgical, and surgical treatment of spinal conditions, Dr. Radcliff has authored or co-authored seventy six peer-reviewed publications, twenty two textbook chapters on diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions, and has won numerous research awards. He was recently chosen as the liaison of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons to the North American Spine Society Low Back Pain Guideline Committee.
Among his various accolades include Top 10 Doctor – Neighborhood (2014), Top 10 Doctor – City (2014), Patients’ Choice Award (2020, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2014), Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2020, 2018, 2017, 2016), and On-Time Doctor Award (2020, 2018).
