Dr Jeffrey Rihn has the following 2 specialties
- Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine
If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.
- Orthopedic Surgery
An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.

Dr Rihn is an excellent, trustworthy surgeon. After many opinions by other doctors, I felt most understood and comfortable with the recommendations made by Dr Rihn. He performed both my ACDF surgery and lumbar decompression in 2017. This was not an easy decision for me, but Dr Rihn and the team from Rothman Institute helped me through and now I am finally starting to feel better. At 6 months post op ACDF I was 100% fused! My lumbar surgery has helped my lower back and leg pain and I am continuing to heal from both under his care. I am thankful for Dr Rihn’s excellent care and knowledge as a spine surgeon. He is a very caring and compassionate doctor who truly wants to make his patients feel better again. I highly recommended Dr. Rihn and the Rothman Institute for anyone who needs orthopedic care! Thank you again! Jennifer Klinger
I'm so glad Dr.Rihn is my surgeon. It's obvious how he really listens to his patients. I have confidence in him and his abilities. If you have a problem with your back, do not hesitate to consult him! I will never let anyone else work on my back ever again. His staff is also first rate! The experience with Dr. Rihn and his team was life changing. Thank you Dr. Rihn!
After going to two other highly-recommended specialists in the area, DR. Rihn was the only one who came up with the right diagnosis. He gave the most thorough exam and reading of the MRI. He was compassionate and caring with me. Even though I didn't qualify for surgery due to diabetic complications, he didn't rule out surgery in the future, if the epidurals stopped working. In summary, he is the only orthopedic doctor I will be seeing in the future! George Cocco
