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.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone the No. 1 hospital in the country for neurology and neurosurgery.
As one of the nation’s premier neurosurgery programs, we offer surgical experience that few institutions can match. Other physicians routinely refer patients who have the most complex brain and spinal cord conditions to our neurosurgeons. Our surgeons’ clinical skills are complemented by their deep commitment to compassionate patient care, supported by a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and staff who are unsurpassed in their training, expertise, and empathy.

Our world-class facilities within NYU Langone’s Kimmel Pavilion include two floors dedicated to neurosurgical care—one floor with seven operating rooms (ORs) and a neuro-intensive care unit (neuro-ICU) solely devoted to neurosurgical recovery. Our “smart” ORs are digitally integrated and are equipped with the most advanced technology, including Surgical Theater, a three-dimensional platform for planning and performing surgery, and Brainlab, integrated software for surgical planning, surgical navigation, data management, and intraoperative imaging.
Two of our ORs offer intraoperative MRI, allowing our neurosurgeons to make real-time decisions based on imaging results during surgery. We also are home to a hybrid vascular OR that offers angiography and traditional OR capabilities, which enables our team to seamlessly perform procedures that require advanced imaging and may require a transition to open surgery. All patient information, including charts, imaging results, and surgical navigation plans, is available at our surgeons’ fingertips through interactive video monitors in each OR. This smart OR technology allows our team to maximize the level of care and safety for each patient.
Our doctors rank among the very best neurosurgeons in their field, and treat all types of conditions affecting the brain and spinal cord, such as:
We perform the full spectrum of brain, spine, and nerve surgery in adults and children using a 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.
