Dr. Hansraj is also the author of Bloodless Spine Surgery: Pictures and Explanations. His goal with each of his books is to bring years of accumulated expert medical knowledge to the public at-large in an easy-to-digest format and to help countless individuals with ongoing spinal and health issues.

Dr. Hansraj currently practices in Poughkeepsie, New York. He is an attending orthopedic spine surgeon at St. Francis Hospital. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, the American Board of Minimally Invasive Spinal Medicine and Surgery, and the National Board of Medical Examiners.

He has authored medical books for the layperson and the professional and has written extensively for medical journals in addition to lecturing at national and global seminars, universities and conferences.

Dr. Hansraj is developing The LandWorks Center an all steel and glass, energy-efficient, Leed Platinum green building in Fishkill, NY. With floor to ceiling glass, a daylight harvesting system, motorized sunshades, open windows, and under floor air distribution this building will augment fresh air, daylight and sunlight (without glare), beauty, health and human comfort in the work place.

Dr. Hansraj resides with his wife, Dr. Marcia Griffin-Hansraj, a doctor of osteopathic medicine, and his son, Jonathan, in Rockland County. In his spare time, Dr. Hansraj enjoys an array of physical activities including skiing, walking, jogging, running and yoga, spending time with his family, and changing people’s lives for the better as often and as dramatically as possible.
