Specialties

Dr. Samuel J Laufer has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Phenomenal Doctor-Second to none

Dr. Laufer is the best. He performed scoliosis surgery on my son and now he is straight as an arrow and 2 inches taller! After the initial soreness he was well on the way to a full recovery. Dr. Laufer is patient and polite and we never felt rushed in his office. He always made us feel special and was careful to answer questions that we had. At one point my son had a rash on his back when we got home, and the doctor got right on the phone and talked us through it and made recommendations for cream. We recommended him very highly.

Cheer Dream Scoliosis Foundation - Founder

From the first moment I meet Dr. Laufer I knew I found the right doctor to treat my daughters Scoliosis. His bedside manner is great, he speaks to the children, relates to them and cares about their progression. Unfortunately my daughter needed spinal fusion surgery and I new we had the best to perform this procedure. He has inspired us to have founded a Non-Profit organization Cheer Dream Scoliosis Fundation to raise awareness about Scoliosis.
