Our Vision

Cantor Spine Center at the Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute is a renowned South Florida-based medical practice specializing in a holistic approach to spinal care through minimally-invasive surgery, cutting-edge technology, methodical research and analysis, and exceptional patient experiences. The pioneering vision of Dr. Jeffrey Cantor, Cantor Spine Center is dedicated to lifestyle-preserving, long-lasting, superior solutions for patients with spine problems.

Cantor Spine Center is founded in a commitment to methodical research, sound outcome analysis, precise process development, sophisticated risk assessment, meticulous planning, and preparation – all created to prevent complications and ensure the most successful surgery possible. We always pursue non-surgical avenues as the first course of action.

Cantor Spine Center is driven by a future-now ethos, and our practice addresses the shortcomings of traditional orthopedic surgery and dated methodology head-on, allowing patients today to benefit from technology and expertise that is years ahead.

Our nationally-recognized team takes the time to connect with, listen to, and really hear a patient and caregiver’s needs and concerns. We thoroughly review, assess, and identify the best treatment plan for a given individual. Every case is different, but all patients are the same in receiving the most thoughtful, personalized plan for treatment and recovery.

Cantor Spine Center is dedicated to delivering the best care across every step of the patient journey, and the entire team is aligned in the constant goal of getting our patients to “better.”
