About Dr. Steinhaus

Dr. Steinhaus is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery for adult and pediatric patients with cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine disorders.


He completed his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, where he graduated with honors with a degree in Biochemistry. He went on to medical school at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City and was selected for Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, which is consistently ranked the #1 residency program in the country.


During residency, he was awarded a fellowship travel grant to study under world-renowned spine surgeon, Dr. Ohenaba Boachie-Adjei, and perform complex spine surgery in Accra, Ghana. After residency, Dr. Steinhaus completed an additional year of subspecialized training in spine surgery to master the latest surgical techniques from some of the world's top spine surgeons, including Dr. Todd Albert, Dr. Frank Schwab, Dr. Sheeraz Qureshi, and Dr. Han Jo Kim. 


Dr. Steinhaus has published extensively in the field of spine and orthopedics with >100 published articles, book chapters, and presentations which he has given to other spine surgeons nationally and internationally. Dr. Steinhaus has been consistently recognized by patients, colleagues, and hospital staff for his devotion to the field and empathy and compassion in patient care, receiving numerous awards and induction into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. He was also selected by the North American Spine Society (NASS) in their "20 Under 40" list of top spine surgeons in the country.

Dr. Steinhaus treats every patient as he would his own family and tries to avoid surgery whenever possible to get patients back to doing what they love, whether that's elite performance in athletics or playing with grandkids. When surgery is required, Dr. Steinhaus uses his training in minimally invasive techniques, navigation, and robotics to provide cutting edge care, giving patients the best outcome while minimizing pain. He focuses on motion-sparing techniques and avoids fusion when possible.

If you're having an issue with your neck or back and think you might be a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, please call (801) 314-2225 to make an appointment with Dr. Steinhaus.
