Dr Jeffrey Cantor



Dr. Jeffrey Cantor is an internationally-recognized spine surgeon and one of the world’s foremost leaders responsible for significant breakthroughs in the most advanced, minimally-invasive “ultrasonic” techniques and procedures. His practice is grounded in motion-preserving and function-sparing spinal surgery, with an emphasis on fusion alternative surgery, for the treatment of cervical stenosis, lumbar stenosis, lumbar spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, and other disabling spinal problems. Dr. Cantor devotes his life’s work to advance the field of spinal surgery through safe, innovative, and transformative techniques.

Board-certified SPINE SURGEON

Dr. Cantor is committed to continuously evolving, identifying, addressing, and solving for the myriad shortcomings of traditional spine surgery and dated methodology – including recurring pain, the creation of three new problems in the fixing of one, compromised mobility and function, over-stress of joints, likelihood of additional surgery, and less-than-optimal outcomes. His founding vision for Cantor Spine Center is to deliver lifestyle-preserving, long-lasting, superior solutions for patients with spine problems. Dr. Cantor’s pioneering, non-destructive processes, techniques, and procedures are the result of exhaustive research, painstaking outcome analysis, incessant practice, and a positive embrace of the benefits of ultrasonic technology.

Ultrasonic technology is Dr. Cantor’s signature platform, enabling him to perform minimally-invasive treatments that are smarter, safer, future-minded, and better. Dr. Cantor continually develops and masters the most sophisticated new surgical techniques and tools, and his novel approach uses high frequency “ultrasonic” vibrations to dissolve painful bone spurs from the inside, out. Dr. Cantor’s expertise provides for a level of safety and precision that is not possible with traditional spine surgery tools and lasers. He deftly tackles incredibly sensitive areas through the smallest incisions – removing pressure in and around the nerve, without causing damage – to preserve structure, strength, mobility, and function.

Dr. Cantor’s distinctive approach reflects his experience as both a spinal surgeon and spinal surgery patient. As someone who’s undergone three separate spinal surgeries – the first at age 16 – Dr. Cantor is uniquely able to relate to his patients and shape effective treatment plans that offer concrete solutions, and answer for the physical, psychological, and emotional burdens associated with these problems. Dr. Cantor credits his experience as a patient with illuminating the need for a whole body and mind approach that looks beyond the spinal problems in order to really arrive at better.

Dr. Cantor brings over 27 years of experience and has performed upwards of 7,000 spinal surgeries. His expertise stretches across the spinal spectrum, from simple procedures to the most complex cervical, thoracic, and lumbar conditions. People travel near, and far, to be under his care. His philosophy extends well beyond the surgery itself, to encompass every single factor that could affect long terms results, from the first visit through recovery, and beyond. Dr. Cantor’s pioneering vision signals a paradigm shift in the practice of spinal care, and his critical developments are credited with improving the lives of people all over.

He resides in Ft. Lauderdale with his wife and son.
