Laury A. Cuddihy, M.D. is a fully trained spine surgeon, having completed her fellowship in spine surgery under Dr. Randal Betz and Dr. Antonacci at the prestigious Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA.
She currently practices as a member of the Institute for Spine and Scoliosis, and is a primary surgical assistant to Dr. Antonacci, performing surgery at both the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York and the University Medical Center at Princeton. Having Dr. Cuddihy as the first surgical assistant to Dr. Antonacci further emphasizes the level of surgical care his patients receive. This means that Dr. Antonacci does not use residents or fellows in training, or physician assistants as his first assistant in surgery, thus providing a standard of expertise in surgical care not typically matched elsewhere.
