Innovative neurosurgeon Dr. Saeed Bajwa has received another prestigious accolade to add to his many achievements: he has been chosen to join The Leading Physicians of the World, an organization recognizing doctors of excellence from across each field of medical specialization. Already an esteemed Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the International College of Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Dr. Bajwa was recently distinguished for his years of dedication, experience and superior patient care, and for his impressive, pioneering approach to the surgical treatment of the brain and spine. His inclusion in the respected medical group’s annual journal underscores a lifelong commitment to professional development and his insistence on using the most technologically advanced methods available.
The Pakistani-born doctor’s well-earned reputation comes not only from an earnest drive to help those suffering from disease and chronic pain, but from his ability to keep his practice at the vanguard of medical progress. This forward-thinking approach can be traced back to 1976, when he received his MD degree at Nishtar Medical College of the University of Punjab in Lahore, Pakistan, where he was a gold medal recipient for First Position in Surgery. After completing his residency in General Surgery and Neurosurgery at the Combined Military Hospital in Lahore, Dr. Bajwa moved to the United States where he completed post-graduate studies in General Surgery at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, followed by two years in Philadelphia undertaking Neurosurgical training at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. In the two following years, he attended State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, where the SUNY Health Science Center elected him to the national honor medical society, Alpha Omega Alpha, as well as presented him with the Distinguished Teaching Award for his work in education.
As a specialist who now joins The Leading Physicians of the World, Dr. Saeed Bajwa’s learning is clearly an ongoing quest. Over the course of his thirty-year career, he has strengthened his extensive knowledge of neurological surgery by consistently training on the latest groundbreaking medical technology in the company of other leading specialists. In 2004, he was involved in the development of an artificial disc for alleviating lower back pain with DePuy Spine, a Johnson & Johnson company. He later became an early adopter of applications like the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System, a tool that emits focused doses of high radiation to inoperable tumors anywhere on the body. His patient-centered philosophy led him to American Spine in Maryland, where in August of 2015, he completed a certification program in Endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Operations of the Lumbar and Thoracic Spine. Last year he also acquired MAZOR robotics for his practice at Southern New York NeuroSurgical Group, P.C. in Binghamton, NY; Dr. Bajwa is one of very few surgeons certified to use MAZOR, the minimally invasive procedural instrument that allows for precise treatment of scoliosis, vertebral compression fractures and spinal deformities. His many accomplishments place him at the forefront of neurosurgery.
Dr. Saeed Bajwa has delivered more than 100 speeches to community-based physicians on the topics of Neurology and Neurosurgery. He is affiliated with Wilson Regional Medical Center (Johnson City, NY), Binghamton General Hospital (Binghamton, NY), Lourdes Hospital (Binghamton, NY) and SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital (Syracuse, NY) and serves on the boards of many community services dedicated to serving people with neural and spinal injuries. Additionally, Dr. Bajwa has generously donated to the Tameer-e-Nau Trust, which provides education and medical assistance for underprivileged communities of Pakistan. In 2012, he helped develop the first CyberKnife Radiosurgery Center for Pakistan at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC) in Karachi, and founded two premier institutions: Shifa International Hospital in Islamabad and Doctors Hospital and Medical Center in Lahore, Pakistan.
