Dr. Joseph Queenan is a Board-Certified Neurosurgeon with wide-ranging experience in the use of microsurgical technique to treat various disorders of the spine, as well as the brain. Since he obtained his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1991, Dr. Queenan took his residency at Case Western Reserve University Hospital in Ohio and later at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. He continued his training in New York as a fellow in pediatric neurosurgery, with a concentration in spinal cord tumors, at Beth Israel Hospital. Upon completion of his fellowship, he moved to just outside the Philadelphia area where he worked at Cooper Hospital in New Jersey for three years before joining the staff of Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware, at which time he became Chief Pediatric Neurosurgeon. He continued to work part time for Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and joined the staff of Hahnemann University Hospital in 2004 and was named Chief shortly thereafter. He is also an Assistant Professor at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Dr. Queenan joined the University Spine Institute at its induction and continues as an integral member of the staff. He is well-known for his methodical approach to spinal disorders – degenerative and traumatic, as well as congenital – in which he assesses the least-intrusive path to the patient’s spinal health and continues with conservative measures unless surgery becomes the remaining option. At that time, he discusses the patient’s desired outcome and the probability of that outcome in a candid manner. He recognizes the individuality of each patient’s circumstances and discusses with the patient his or her role in attaining the best outcome, which often involves the patient’s commitment to leading a lifestyle that supports a healthy back. Dr. Queenan also performs cranial procedures such as the decompression of Chiari malformations, shunting for cerebral spinal fluid anomalies and excision of tumors. His continued experience as an on-call trauma neurosurgeon speaks to his multi-faceted abilities to assess and execute the best surgical approach in trauma cases -- when time is of utmost importance -- as well as his ability to meticulously plan elective cases for the best surgical outcome. Dr. Queenan is a compassionate neurosurgeon who works diligently to ensure the physical wellbeing of his patients, which he believes is paramount to the quality of life for those patients.
