As a physician-researcher, Jon Lurie has a longstanding interest in improving care and medical decision-making for patients with lumbar spine disorders, including low-back pain, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative spondylolisthesis, and degenerative lumbar scoliosis. In short, his work helps patients make critical decisions about how to treat back pain. In his role as co-investigator of the Spine Patient Outcomes Research Trial (SPORT) and the Multicenter Prospective Study of Quality of Life in Adult Scoliosis, Lurie helped to design, execute, and interpret several large multi-center pragmatic trials evaluating the comparative effectiveness of surgery compared to usual non-operative care in randomized and concurrent observational cohorts of patients with spinal problems.
Lurie's research often involves large Medicare claims and other database analyses as he examines differences in approaches to and outcomes of treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. He is the associate director of the Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Center in Musculoskeletal Diseases at Dartmouth, co-director of the Center for Translation of Rehabilitation Engineering Advances and Technology, and the co-director of the comparative effectiveness core for the New England Pediatric Device Consortium.
Lurie earned a BS in geological engineering from Princeton University, an MD from Stanford University, and an MS from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
