Following the completion of his general surgery and orthopedic surgery residency training at Mount Sinai Hospital and King/Drew Medical Center, (during which he completed a Fellowship in Orthopedic Biomechanics at The Hospital for Special Surgery, NY), Dr. Hansraj held a Fellowship at the California Center for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery and a Fellowship in Spinal and Scoliosis Surgery at The Hospital for Special Surgery, New York.

Dr. Hansraj was inspired to dedicate his life to surgery early on while observing in the operating theaters of Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY with cardiothoracic surgeons Drs. Arisan Ergin and Randall Griepp at just 16 years of age. He earned his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine, Philadelphia in 1987 after obtaining graduate studies in biological sciences from Columbia University, New York and an undergraduate degree in biological sciences from Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey.

He selected spinal surgery as a sub-specialization in orthopedic surgery because it was uncharted territory at the time in contrast to other forms of more traditional orthopedic procedures including joint replacement. Dr. Hansraj wanted to be at the forefront of a new, exciting and challenging chapter in medicine and contribute to the shape of the overall future of spinal health and well-being.

Today, with more than two decades of surgical experience, Dr. Hansraj has seen and treated more than 30,000 patients and has come to recognize and promote the critical importance of the spine as it relates to overall physical and mental well-being.
