About Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai

For the last century, the surgeons performing neurosurgical procedures at The Mount Sinai Hospital created an extraordinary legacy upon which today’s physicians are building and excelling. Under the leadership of Joshua B. Bederson, MD, FACS, Professor and Chairman of Neurosurgery, our physicians are constantly formulating new initiatives in minimally invasive neurosurgery, spinal disease, and the management of neurovascular abnormalities and tumors of the nervous system. With access to the most cutting-edge technology, we are committed to our mission to deliver superior, compassionate care to each of our patients.

Excellence in Neurosurgical Care

Our Neurosurgery services are internationally and nationally renowned. Our expertise in skull-base surgery, cerebrovascular disease, pituitary disorders, acoustic tumors, spinal reconstruction, epilepsy, radiosurgery, stereotactic and primary brain tumor surgery, and neuroendoscopy have made Mount Sinai a premier destination for neurosurgical care. Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai ranks 12th in the nation for neurological surgery, according to the 2016-2017 "Best Hospitals" issue of U.S. News & World Report. Our physicians are consistently listed in New York Magazine’s Best Doctors issue.

Patients not only benefit from our excellent research and highly skilled physicians, but also from our multidisciplinary approach to care. They benefit from the insights from multiple experts, as we closely collaborate with esteemed physicians in other service areas at Mount Sinai including:

Translational Research

In addition to partnering with other service areas throughout Mount Sinai, our clinical and research teams work collaboratively, enabling our physicians to translate research findings rapidly into new therapies. In turn, our patients receive the latest advanced care. At Mount Sinai, we have physicians that have received funding from the National Institutes of Health to support research activities aimed at searching for and applying knowledge of patients to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability.

Mount Sinai's top-ranked neurosurgeons are gradually unlocking the mysteries of the nervous system, translating their discoveries into treatments we could only have dreamed of just a few years ago.
