Welcome to

Neurosurgery

Our neurosurgeons lead the field in surgical expertise and are the go-to doctors for the most complex cases.

The neurosurgeons at NYU Langone are guided by a simple philosophy: our patients always come first. We believe that when patient care is optimized, training and research are also of the highest quality. This approach has allowed our neurosurgeons to be leaders in the field for more than 50 years.

As one of the nation’s premier neurosurgery programs, we offer a depth and breadth of surgical experience that few institutions can match. Other physicians routinely refer their most complex surgical cases to our neurosurgeons. At the same time, our surgeons’ clinical skills are complemented by their deep commitment to compassionate patient care, supported by a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and support staff who are unsurpassed in their training, expertise, and empathy.

Our surgeons rank among the very best in their field in every neurosurgical area, including brain and skull base tumors, epilepsy, adult hydrocephalus, and peripheral nerve disorders, as well as spinal neurosurgery, vascular and endovascular surgery, and pediatric neurosurgery. Our expertise encompasses a full range of cutting-edge neurosurgical approaches, including interventional neurovascular procedures, minimally invasive and endoscopic cranial and spinal techniques, skull base approaches, and stereotactic radiosurgery. 

This same patient-centered approach extends to our state-of-the-art surgical facilities, our groundbreaking neurosurgical research laboratories, and our outstanding residency-training program. With the most cutting-edge technologies and treatments at our disposal, and access to NYU Langone’s world-class specialists in complementary fields such as neurology, neuro-oncology, neuropathology, neuroradiology, neuro-ophthalmology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology and endocrinology, our neurosurgeons we have the best tools to provide the very highest level of care.
