The Princeton Spine and Joint Center, LLC was formed by Grant Cooper, MD, and Ana Bracilovic, MD. Ana and Grant met at Princeton High School and stayed close friends as undergraduates at the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University. They reunited in medical school at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson and married shortly thereafter. While in New York City during residency training at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, they resolved to ultimately return home to Princeton and start their own practice with a shared vision of providing highest quality patient care.

What Our Patients Say
Best Pain Doctor
I am 48 years old and have had lots of sports injuries throughout my life. I can safely say that Dr Bracilovic is easily the kindest, most thoughtful, competent, and intelligent doctor I have ever been to. She took care of my neck pain and got it better very quickly where others had failed. I was so impressed that I brought in my parents and my daughter on separate occasions and each time Dr. Bracilovic took her time with us, explained the problem, ordered the appropriate tests, arrived at an accurate diagnosis and solved the problem! I cannot recommend Dr. Bracilovic and her friendly staff strongly enough.
Dr. Cooper demonstrates a sincere interest in your well being. He has compassion and within minutes makes you feel he is genuinely interested in helping you feel better. He is a first rate doctor who I trust implicitly.
You can’t do better
My back pain was getting steadily worse over several months. I won’t say that it was unbearable, but it was getting there. Dr. Cooper diagnosed a bulging disc pressing on a nerve, and gave me an epidural steroid injection. I’ve been essentially pain free for more than four years now.
Best doctor I ever went to. I highly recommend him
Dr. Cooper cured my back and knee pain. I did not think it was possible but here I am without pain and able to play with my children again and I have Dr. Cooper to thank for that. He also gave great recommendation and prescription for physical therapy. His staff and colleagues are also terrific. A+ all around.
