A leader in neurosurgery

Our neurosurgeons are world-renowned in their field, expertly treating a wide variety of neurosurgical issues, including the most rare and complex. Our specialists use the newest, most advanced treatments, such as Gamma Knife and deep brain stimulation, to ensure optimal results. 

You can see our dedication in everything we do, from creating uniquely tailored videos of recovery instructions for patients like Kathy, to being the first in the U.S. to obtain a video microscope—a novel device that allows an entire surgical team to clearly observe delicate brain and spine operations in 3D. We also teach the next generation of doctors through formalized educational programs, and we conduct leading-edge research to advance our field. 

Northwell neurosurgeons are continually thinking of ways to deliver the best possible care to patients—and create a brighter tomorrow for all.
