Marc A. Weinstein, M.D.

Location Availability

My philosophy in caring for patients is to consider the treatment I would recommend for members of my own family. I have a very conservative approach and always try to evaluate the best treatment option before suggesting surgery.

Dr. Weinstein is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and dual fellowship trained in spinal surgery.  He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Rutgers University, and received his medical degree from the Yale University School of Medicine.  Dr. Weinstein completed his Orthopaedic residency at the Yale University School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, a fellowship in spine research at Cornell University and the hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, and a fellowship in spine surgery at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center under the direction of Dr. Frank Eismont.

Dr. Weinstein holds a position as an assistant professor of sports medicine and orthopedics at the University of South Florida.  He has published numerous research papers in both peer reviewed medical journals and textbooks, and has lectured at national and international spine meetings. His special interests are in cervical spine surgery.

During his free time, Dr. Weinstein enjoys the theater, opera, and reading, as well as a variety of outdoor activities. Mostly, he enjoys spending time with his family.

Dr. Weinstein is very thorough and knowledgeable. He took excellent care of me; his staff is excellent.

Sandra D.

My appt. went well with Dr. Weinstein. He patiently explained my condition and available treatment options. Everyone at Fl. Orthopaedic was courteous and friendly.

Patty J.

I cannot say enough about what an excellent doctor Dr. Weinstein is! He would not rest until he unturned every stone in finding a definitive diagnosis for me. I felt complete confidence in his skills and knowledge. Dr. Weinstein is highly regarded by the staff at Tampa General Hospital, and they freely told me so. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, but he also is friendly, compassionate, and has a great sense of humor. Dr. Weinstein heard that I was very anxious before my surgical procedure and came to see me before going into the OR. Dr. Weinstein was reassuring and kind. He helped to calm me down and actually had me laughing. I would absolutely recommend him to my family and friends.

This was my two-year check with Dr. Weinstein, and as always, he went over all information with me, answered my questions, and offered advice. Thank you.

Sue B.

When I came to you for help, I couldn’t walk because of my back pain. You took the time to explain the surgery, what I would be going though and simplified things for me, and held my hand. Three years later my back is doing well. You and your team are the best. Thank you for healing me!

Dorothy N.

My sincere gratitude is extended to Dr. Weinstein and his administrative assistant, Staci, for their caring approach in assisting me with my current back/nerve related conditions.

Terry S.

Two years ago I had a multi-level cervical spine laminectomy and fusion. Dr. Weinstein did a wonderful job with a very difficult surgery. Within six months I was back to my normal exercise routines, and now two years on, I carry on doing the things I enjoy like hiking in Yellowstone National Park as well as the Badlands South Dakota! Thank you so much, Dr. Weinstein!

Laura S.

I began walking in earnest at the end of July and since then, I have walked 90 miles (something I had not been able to do for 3 years). The only pain I have experienced since the surgery has been the pain associated with healing. Now, I will work hard to strengthen all relevant muscles, make every effort not to do anything stupid and continue to enjoy the success of the surgery.

William S.

He has helped me through two different back issues. Will always take his time with you. He is very knowledgeable. He tells you like it is and what he can do for you. He does all his own procedures to include injections. Love him and will always recommend him.

These people, this facility has literally been nothing but fantastic, professional, funny, wonderful mannerisms and go the extra mile and then some. Ask to get an appointment with Dr. Weinstein and nurse practitioner Tram. Amazing crew!

Diondria C.

Dr. Weinstein’s caring, competent and proactive in diagnosing and treating my back condition. His assigned rehab was helpful in reducing pain and now he is taking aggressive action to help restore my health and mobility.

Jay W.

Dr. Weinstein was honest with me and didn’t promise an improvement because my spine was partially fused in that position, but said he’d do his very best. He also discovered that the head of one of the screws had fallen off (it was of a type he does not recommend). I trusted him and he performed a miracle. I will never be 100%, but after a few months of recovery, I have greatly reduced the pain medication, I’m resuming some of my hobbies and I’m loving life again. Dr. Weinstein truly gave me back my hope and my life. Trust him!


Dr. Marc Weinstein and his staff are exceptional!!! My husband is playing golf, pickle ball and tennis after his back surgery 10 years ago! Loving being active and enjoying the Florida lifestyle. Thank you Dr. Weinstein!

Donna M.

Amazing job on a complicated back surgery. I couldn’t walk, sit or sleep. I now have my life back, pain free. Thank you, Dr. Weinstein and your staff!

Dianne M.

Dr. Weinstein had a positive attitude. A great sense of humor and excellent bedside manner. I felt very comfortable with him.

Roger R.

I want to start by saying Dr. Weinstein and his staff are phenomenal and I want to thank them! Dr. Weinstein has a way about him. I have learned that he is straight to the point. He is not going to sugar coat anything and if that is what you want then you need to go elsewhere. He is going to tell you what needs to be done, what is expected of his patients and other options if there are any. Dr. Weinstein is extremely knowledgeable and went through the steps that surgery and post surgery would consist of. His staff, as well, was and is extremely helpful. Staci, his secretary, was a blessing to us. She was always there to help anyway that she could and also made the whole situation less traumatic. My husband had a two-part surgery and each of them went well. He did not rush in to do any surgeries and ultimately we had the final say. My husband is still healing from the procedures and doing well.

We cannot praise and thank Dr. Weinstein and his staff enough for the wonderful experience. The skilled hands of this doctor helped my husband have a better quality of life. He is not living with the pain and numbness he once experienced before the surgeries. We highly recommend Dr. Weinstein to anyone who is in need of a wonderful orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Marc Weinstein is very, very thorough, spends as much time as needed and has given my husband the ability to play golf, pickle ball and tennis in our retirement here in Florida. His office staff is very efficient. Dr. Weinstein ordered not one, but two CT scans to identify and clarify the surgery needed for my husband’s back issues. He has been very good in managing the ongoing comfort with epidural injections that take away all pain for my husband. Thank you, Dr. Weinstein for giving the many hours and dedication to your patients. We are blessed to know you and recommend you as often as possible!

I had a very complicated lumbar case. I saw one neurosurgeon who couldn’t do my surgery and one that recused to because of the risk for complications. I had no quality of life and at the age of 54, I was not willing to give up. I saw Dr. Weinstein and he ordered multiple tests to make sure the surgery was as safe as we could make it. He was honest and warned me of the risks and guarded prognosis even with the surgery. I am one year post-surgery and have exceeded not only my expectations but his as well. Thanks to Dr. Garlick for referring me to Dr. Weinstein. Thanks from my husband for giving him his wife back. Thanks to this talented surgeon!

Jeff H.

A tremendous doctor. He fixed my husband’s issue totally. Highly recommend!

Vitals Review

I found Dr. Weinstein to be a highly competent, knowledgeable and patient-friendly physician. His pre and post surgical care was, in a single word, outstanding. Needless to say, I am very pleased with my surgical result. Dr. Weinstein engenders a patient’s trust and confidence through his thorough and meticulous explanation of care options. I would highly recommend Dr. Weinstein to both family and friends.

Vitals Review

Dr. Weinstein spent a lot of time with me, discussing my problem, possible causes and potential resolutions. I can tell he really cares about what is best for his patients. Sometimes that means doing everything you can to avoid surgery and often it means changing your lifestyle. I went to him for the truth and I got it. I was looking for a well educated doctor who puts my health before his pocket and that’s what I got! I am very happy with Dr. Weinstein and his staff and I would recommend them to anyone!

Vitals Review

Dr. Weinstein and his staff were fantastic! They all spent a lot of time with me, despite how busy the office seemed. Dr. Weinstein went over my symptoms and pain, sent me for an x-ray and showed me the results. He told me what he believes the issue is and we discussed treatment and next steps. I appreciate this honesty and advice. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Weinstein is an excellent orthopaedic doctor. I know that I’m in great hands and care with Dr. Weinstein. He’s very trustworthy in and out and is a doctor that will tell you like it is. I would have no problems recommending this doctor to others and family members.

After experiencing leg pain for several years, surgery on my lower back solved the problem. The pain is gone and I am regaining the ability to walk  and function normally. My thanks to all of you at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute!

Kenneth H.

My experience at Florida Orthopaedic Institute was nothing short of amazing. When I first walked into the ER I could hardly stand and they recommended I see Florida Orthopaedic Institute. I made an appointment and was seen by Dr. Weinstein. That day changed my life forever. He ordered an MRI which showed I had problems in my L5-S1 area. I tried injections, my disk blew out lodging fragments in my nerves. Dr. Weinstein ordered surgery, tried to repair the disk area and clean out the fragments and two weeks later another piece broke off. I dealt with the worst pain of my life for another year. The whole time Dr. Weinstein was there. Helping to control my pain which I know I was a pain in his rear, but he never quit. Had my L5-S1 fusion and woke up from surgery with the greatest spine surgeon ever at the foot of my bed. It was like he flipped a light switch. I was cured from the moment I woke up I know it. To this day some two years later I’ve never had a problem with my lower back. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Weinstein and his team. They saved my life. I’ll recommend FOI and Dr Weinstein to anyone. They are the greatest ever!

Robert W.

Dr. Weinstein did surgery on my spinal cord and replaced two discs. It was totally an amazing experience from start to end. He was very caring, very on top of things, and made me feel like I was his only patient at all times. He was so on top of things …I never had pain after or before surgery, which was a miracle in itself. No pain after is a true testament to me of his good work. I would recommend this man to anyone …. I have the utmost respect for him as a surgeon and as a person. Thanks Doc, you were great.
