Dr. John Caridi graduated with honors from Indiana University School of Medicine, where he was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center and R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center before completing a year-long orthopedic fellowship in adult and pediatric spinal deformity surgery at the renowned Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Additionally, he underwent training in advanced minimally invasive spine surgery at the Schoen Klinik in Munich, Germany.

Board-certified in neurosurgery, Dr. Caridi specializes in spine surgery, especially complex reconstruction of adult and pediatric cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spinal deformity. His patients benefit from his neurosurgical experience combined with his orthopedic spine training. His areas of expertise include complex reconstructive surgery for congenital and degenerative joint and disc disease; spinal trauma and deformity correction including kyphosis, scoliosis, chin-on-chest deformity, and ear-on-shoulder deformity; revision spine surgery; resection and spinal stabilization for cancers, and minimally invasive spine surgery and microsurgery.

Dr. Caridi treats patients who are affected by a wide variety of diseases of the spinal column and the central nervous system. He believes in taking a comprehensive approach to patient care, collaborating with neurologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and pain management specialists.

An associate professor in the Vivian L. Smith Department of Neurosurgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston, Dr. Caridi also serves as chief of the Neurosurgical Spine Division of UTHealth Neurosciences. Prior to joining McGovern Medical School, Dr. Caridi developed and directed the neurosurgical spinal deformity program for the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. He is a principal investigator for numerous studies focused on improving patient outcomes and has presented his research nationally and internationally. His findings have been published in peer-reviewed journals, and he was awarded the prestigious Scoliosis Research Society international traveling fellowship in 2019.
