Patient resources

Neurosurgery patients have a lot to think about. To help ease your mind and set you on the path to recovery, we have gathered many of the resources patients find helpful in preparation for care.

Patient forms

Prior to your initial consultation, it is recommended that patients complete the following forms and upload scans from other physicians or hospitals through our secure file sharing sites. Make sure to bring all completed forms and documentation with you to your visit.

Virtual office visits

Our surgeons routinely perform virtual office visits which enable them to meet with patients remotely. We then create a video of instructions for each patient to help the patient understand his/her individual treatment plan. A digital copy of the virtual office visit and the instruction video are sent to the patient prior to his/her procedure. Please see examples below.


Our neurosurgeons are leaders in the field of brain, spine and nervous system disorders. For assistance in finding the right neurosurgery expert for you, please call our office at (212) 434-3900, text at (929) 33-LHHNS or use our online find a doctor tool.


We are accessible by public transportation and car. The hospital is also easily accessible from LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark International airports. Taxi service and airport shuttle buses are available at most airline terminals.
