With more top neurologists and neurosurgeons than any other hospital in the nation, New York’s #1 neurological program is innovating treatments for brain tumors, epilepsy, strokes, and spinal disorders.
We offer a wide range of treatments for spinal disorders and treat more brain tumors than any other center in New York. We have two designated Level 4 Comprehensive Epilepsy Centers that provide our complex epilepsy patients with the highest-level of medical and surgical care. Our mobile stroke units, equipped with the advanced technologies of an ED, continue to push the boundaries of comprehensive care for all patients.
