While they may share some common features, each disorder is unique and often requires an expert to understand the nuances of diagnosis and treatment.
Attracting thousands of patients from the New York Metropolitan area and beyond, our program offers advanced care from the time of diagnosis throughout disease progression. Our highly specialized team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists and physical therapists develop personalized care plans for each patient, precisely modulating treatments to maintain overall health, quality of life, and independence.
