Here, she perfects her surgical skills and contributed numerous research papers.

Dr. Carrer has attended numerous national and international meetings presenting her research and is an active member of the spine community. As a competitive martial artist in Taekwondo and Wushu in her youth and a weekend athlete warrior now, Dr. Carrer, has also focused on the non-operative treatment of orthopedic and spinal disorders and guides patients not only through the treatment of present ailments but through prevention of future degenerative conditions associated with activity and aging. Dr. Carrer treats patient individually and integrates multimodal treatments to maximize a rapid functional recovery. Dr. Carrer’s scope of practice encompasses the management of degenerative, traumatic and deformity–related conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral spine.

Dr. Carrer’s surgical expertise focuses on minimally invasive techniques, lateral approaches, trans-sacral and endoscopic procedures, and motion preservation. In particular, along with her partner Dr. Frazier, founder of New York City Spine, she is developing minimally surgical techniques for the treatment of failed back syndrome and revision spine surgery, so that patients with prior failed back or neck surgery can experience a fast recovery with minimal downtime and complications.
