From the first day I walked in this office, I was treated with care, courtesy and professionalism. Also, the office was very clean and tidy. When I met Dr. Raab I was in an extreme pain and he was the first Dr. who understood my pain and wanted to relieve me as soon as possible. He was very calming and caring which made me feel more comfortable in a scary situation as we were discussing surgery. I had tried all other avenues like pain pills and epidural shots and still had extreme pain so surgery was last my resort. I thought I would have to wait weeks or months but because of the pain I was in, he was able to squeeze me in the next week. To make this happen, his staff had to get a lot done quickly and they were on it from the minute I was diagnosed. Kira, who is Dr. Raabs scheduling person was on calls getting me all the medial clearance appointments I needed in the next couple days. She was amazing and made it happen so quickly and was also very caring of my situation so thank you so much Kira! Dr Raab is the most calm, reassuring and caring Dr. I have ever met. He new I was upset and was scared of the surgery and made me feel calm and comfortable in our first meeting and at the hospital on the day of surgery. He has a very calming way about him and all the hospital staff were raving about how amazing of a Dr. he is. He has been amazing though this entire process and did such a great job on my back surgery and I was able to walk out of the hospital, when before the surgery I could barely walk. I feel lucky to have found Dr. Raab and I’m so thankful for him and his amazing staff. If you’re looking for a great Dr. who cares and his amazing at what he does, as well as has an amazing staff look no further and call his office asap! Thank you Dr. Raab, Kira and all the staff who helped me through this process!!!

Amazing staff, super helpful and wonderful facility. Physical therapy has been a huge help and Joanna is warm, caring and works with exactly what is needed for your issue. Although my condition required more management, my core is so much stronger, which will aid in having a much stronger back and efficient movement. Thank you for everything you've done for me. Also thank you to Dr. Oh and Dr. Haber! I'm getting my life back!

Highly competent staff. Lovely, clean space. A very nice place to get your body in order
Staff is friendly and accommodating. My physical therapist, Joanna, was wonderful. It's obvious that she genuinely cares about her patients.

I would like to take a moment to comment on the outstanding professionalism that has been extended to me each time I walk in your office and meet with Evangelyn. She exemplifies a dedicated interest in each and every person and her communication and dedication to patients is outstanding! If I had my own company I would steal her away and offer her a job immediately!!

The facility is clean and Covid safe. The staff is pleasant. I never had to wait to be seen and everyone was always willing to answer any of my questions. Joanna (my physical therapist) is not only gentle and patient, but extremely knowledgeable. In addition to getting my back feeling better, she taught me a lot about how my body works and what I can do to keep it working after therapy. I walked away with a list of exercises and a world of thanks.

I can’t say enough good things about Centers for Neurosurgery Spine & Orthopedics (CNSO). After meeting with several other practices & specialists, I decided upon CNSO, specifically Dr. Colin Harris, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, to correct a life-long, painful, and worst-of-all, a progressive, deformity (Scheuermann's disease) in my spine, a surgery that I've known for years was eventually inevitable, but something I greatly dreaded.

I especially love the team approach that CNSO brought to my care, including that my surgical team was a combination of two essential disciplines: Orthopediac Spine Surgeon (Dr. Harris) and Neurosurgeon (Dr. Rajnik Raab). They performed a 13-vertebre T2-L2 fusion on my spine, the result of which is just incredible! I have no more thoracic pain and the ugly, rigid hump in my back is forever gone!

The PA-Cs at CNSO, Peter and Katerina, are wonderful. They took great care checking on me during my post-op hospital stay. It was rough going at first and they were kind and reassuring which really helped me to stay strong and positive. The office staff are great too -- friendly and competent with the ever-important follow-thru of all things related to surgical process, insurance, scheduling, etc! Cheryl was my surgical coordinator and she was fantastic.

There are no words to express my relief and my gratitude to everyone at CNSO. I highly recommend this practice to anyone facing complicated - or otherwise - spine issues.

Where do I begin…between 2011 in 2016 I met with over a dozen qualified orthopedic doctors. I finally found Dr. Raab through a friend late 2016.

Well deciding to prolong surgery till ultimately necessary he told me “I would see him again”
October 22, 2018 he performed disc replacements C6 C7
But it wouldn’t of happened without the help of his brilliant staff!!!!!
Unfortunately we did not have the proper insurance with out of network coverage his staff went above and beyond and fought to get it covered through insurance 100%

I thank them so very much no pain after the surgery thank you very much
Very professional and courteous staff and Doctor. Office clean and ample. Not a long wait. Loved the way that Dr. examined my husband. Very careful, detailed and not rushing on the examination.
Dr. Explained everything clearly. Would highly recommend him

I wish I could give this amazing group more then 5 stars. I have had back pain for over 6 years, and have tried countless things before seeing Dr.Branko. The second I met him I instantly knew this man could change my life. Dr.Branko was the first and only doctor to actually take the time and explain to me about what type of back condition I had. He showed me on the images I brought to him, and he even wanted images that no one has thought of taking. He took the time to answer all the questions I had and clear up any uncertainties I had. In the same day I had my first appointment with him I scheduled my surgery. Every single staff member has been AMAZING since day one! They go above and beyond to make sure that you get the correct care, and you do not feel left in the dark.
I even started PT that is apart of their office. It makes me feel at ease that the PTs work in connection with all the surgeons. If the therapist is unsure of something they go right over to the surgeon.

I will FOREVER suggest and recommend North Jersey Spine Group to anyone who has spine/neuro issues.

North Jersey Spine Group is fantastic! Dr. Branko is an amazing surgeon and the PT dept is top notch. I've been to ~6 other places for PT over the years and had the most success here by far. The whole team is very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful.

I owe Dr. Raab my life, not only did he give me my life back he has also saved my mothers life. You will never find a more compassionate, caring and incredible doctor. I can’t say enough good things about him.

Sometimes you just get lucky. This was one of those times. I can say with 100% certainly. If you are faced with the decision of undergoing back surgery, it would be well worth your time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Raab. Really satisfied with his manner of communication, his professionalism, and obviously what he brings to the table. It didn't take long after checking into Valley Hospital that I received assurance from every hospital staff member connected to my surgery that I had an excellent surgeon. They all had really nice things to say. Dr. Raab is definitely a people person and with Doctors today in my experience the connection with people has been lost. I truly believe Dr. Raab has your best interest in mind and will handle your case with the same level of competency as he did mine.
