Northwell Health’s Michael Schulder, MD, Appointed to Journal of Neurosurgery’s Editorial Board

Michael Schulder, MD, vice chair of neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset and Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, has been appointed to the editorial board of the prestigious publication, Journal of Neurosurgery.                              

The Journal of Neurosurgery is recognized worldwide for its authoritative articles on clinical and laboratory research, and innovative surgical techniques and instruments, as well as its rigorous focus on the highest-quality presentation of scientific and medical advances.

Dr. Schulder will specifically help oversee the content of the journal’s brain tumor, skull-base surgery, radiosurgery, and functional neurosurgery specialty sections.

An internationally recognized expert in the use of stereotactic methods to treat patients with brain tumors, Dr. Schulder has the largest surgical series utilizing a compact, mobile intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) in the United States. He has spearheaded the development of tools to ensure that laser fibers can be inserted with the highest accuracy through small incisions to treat patients with brain tumors. Dr. Schulder’s extensive research in stereotactic radiosurgery focuses on using this technique to treat metastatic tumors, avoiding whole-brain irradiation and subsequent memory loss, as well as defining the ideal dose and treatment schedule for patients with benign brain tumors.

In addition to his role as vice chair of neurosurgery, Dr. Schulder is also director of the hospital’s neurosurgery residency program; director of the Brain Tumor Center at Northwell Health’s Neuroscience Institute; and co-director of the Center for Stereotactic Radiosurgery at Northwell Health’s Cancer Institute.
