Biography

Dr. Grauer is Professor and Director of the Orthopaedic Spine Service for the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at Yale School of Medicine.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Tufts University, graduating summa cum laude and with Phi Beta Kappa. He received his Medical Doctorate from Yale School of Medicine, graduating cum laude and with Alpha Omega Alpha. He completed his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Yale New Haven Hospital and a fellowship in spine surgery at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University.

Clinically, Dr. Grauer specializes in the treatment of numerous conditions affecting the cervical, thoracic, and lumbosacral spine including degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, trauma, infections, and tumors. He believes in meeting patients' individual needs through evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve active, pain-free lifestyles. His clinical practice is based out of Yale New Haven Hospital, and outpatients are seen at the Yale New Haven Hospital Spine Center.

Academically, Dr. Grauer and the students and residents with whom he works have received numerous awards. He has authored or co-authored over 275 peer-reviewed scientific papers, 90 reviews, and 70 book chapters, and been a part of over 450 pore-reviewed scientific presentations, . He is on the boards of the North American Spine Society (NASS) and Lumbar Spine Research Society (LSRS), is editor-in-chief of their North American Spine Society Journal (NASSJ), as well as active with other academic societies.

Administratively, Dr Grauer is active with faculty affairs at the Yale School of Medicine. He is a point of contact for departments with the Office of Academic and Professional Development (OAPD) and responsible for a number of related projects related to that office.
