Veteran Western New York spine surgeon Andrew Cappuccino, M.D., has joined the medical staff and will be performing surgery at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center.
Cappuccino is a graduate of the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University's Whiting School of Engineering, where he earned degrees in biomedical engineering and material science. He later completed a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University's Scoliosis and Spine Center with Paul McAfee, M.D., an acknowledged pioneer in the field of disk replacement. He is board-certified by the American Board of Spinal Surgery.
Cappuccino earned international recognition in 2007 when he was credited with saving the life of then-Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett after Everett was paralyzed by a devastating spine injury making a tackle during a kickoff in a game against the Denver Broncos. Cappuccino continues to serve as the Bills' spine surgeon and as an assistant orthopedic surgeon and is the spine consultant to the Buffalo Sabres.
Cappuccino's practice focuses on motion preservation, minimally invasive spine surgery, stem cell therapy and traditional spine surgery, while specializing in varieties of back and spine surgery using state of the art techniques.
Cappuccino holds office hours at Buffalo Spine Surgery, 46 Davison Court, Lockport, and at 6133 Route 219 in Ellicottville. To schedule an appointment, call 716-438-2973.
