Spine

Orthopaedics involves the complete care of the musculoskeletal system. The most delicate of these 
areas is the Spine and nervous system. Treatment of the Spine is complex. Interaction between multiple 
fields has to be coordinated to bring quality care to every patient at Hamilton Orthopaedic Surgery and 
Sports Medicine. Due to years of dedication we at HOSSM have attained referrals from New York City, 
Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, California and Canada. We work with major Corporations to tailor care for 
every client. 
Spine Care starts from the customer exercising, watching their diet with a nutritionist, and may progress 
to large surgical fusions connecting curves due to scoliosis or fractures due to accidents or falls. 
Hamilton Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine works with Physical therapists, acupuncturists, 
massage therapists, rheumatologists, chiropractors, neurologists, and neurosurgeons. Working with 
these specialists allows us to co-ordinate tailored to our customer’s needs. 
Since our founding in 1984 we have been treating spine patients and have evolved to innovating 
implants and using cutting edge technology for care of our clients. We are leaders in our field with 
research on Artificial Disc Replacement, Nucleus Replacement, and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeries. 
The members of the Spine Group and the rest of Hamilton Orthpaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, 
look forward to helping you get back to your life, work and families as soon as possible.

Our spine team headed by Dr. Rudolph A. Buckley MD, MBA, makes available the latest advances in spinal innovations to Central New York. This includes minimally invasive surgeries that shorten recovery time. Dr. Buckley has and continues to participate in FDA studies in the newest spinal devices and technologies. We are therefore able to offer the most current procedures to our patients that other doctors in this area are not able to. Some of them include artificial disc replacements, nucleus pulposus replacement, kyphoplasty, sacral iliac joint fusion, and many others.

We encourage you to peruse our web site. This website is created to be a comprehensive resource, offering patients access to information they need to make the most informed decisions about their care. Some of the features on this site include a section on different spinal conditions, explanation of the spinal surgeries we offer, and access to patient stories.
