Stefano Sinicropi, M.D.

Dr. Stefano Sinicropi is a Board Certified Expert in spinal surgery, who is trained in both Orthopedic and Neurosurgical techniques.  He dedicates his practice to getting his patients back to a pain-free life.  After evaluating patients through his proprietary Diagnosis and Treatment Algorithm, patients will be given a specific treatment plan outline. Some patients will be or become candidates to undergo minimally invasive spine surgery, total disc replacement, or complex spinal fusion.

Dr. Sinicropi attended the prestigious Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons Medical School and then completed a combined Research/Clinical Residency at Columbia University’s Presbyterian Hospital.  Following residency he sub-specialized in Spinal Surgery through successful completion of the Kenton D. Leatherman Spinal Fellowship at the University of Louisville, where he trained with some of the most well-respected Neurosurgeons and Orthopedic spinal surgeons in the United States.

Dr. Sinicropi joined Midwest Spine & Brain Institute in 2006 and quickly developed one of the busiest practices in the Midwest. In 2012 Dr. Sinicropi was named the President and CEO of Midwest Spine & Brain Institute in Stillwater, MN and has continued to expand the Vision of “Right Diagnosis allows the Right Treatment.”

Dr. Sinicropi has one of the largest and most successful practices in Minnesota because of his reputation of giving the patient REAL ANSWERS to even the most diagnostically challenging patients.  Patients who are told that they need spinal surgery often travel to see Dr. Sinicropi to see if there is another potentially less invasive option for them.    Patients who have been told “there is nothing we can do” having sometimes endured years of treatments and incorrect diagnosis are often relieved to hear that there is a solution to their condition.
