Dr. Germano joined the faculty at Mount Sinai in 1993. She is Director of The Mount Sinai Comprehensive Brain Tumor Program, an advanced multidisciplinary program based on computer-assisted image-guided neurosurgery and brain mapping to accomplish minimally invasive procedures and treatment of brain tumors, and is Co-director of the Radiosurgery Program.

You can learn more about Dr. Germano by visiting the Neurosurgery Tumors website.

Her specialty interests include Brain Tumors, Computer-Assisted Image-Guided Neurosurgery, Epilepsy surgery and  Radiosurgery. She is Director of The Mount Sinai Medical Center Comprehensive Brain Tumor Program, an advanced multidisciplinary program based on computer-assisted image-guided neurosurgery and brain mapping to accomplish minimally invasive procedures and treatment of brain tumors. Dr. Germano is one of the pioneers of computer-assisted image-guided neurosurgery. This sophisticated technology, including the Novalis Shaped Beam Surgery, is used to perform minimally invasive surgery for patients with brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and movement disorders. Active in national neurosurgery organizations, she has served as an executive committee member for the Congress of Neurosurgery (CNS), as a Board of Directors' member for the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, as an executive committee member of the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Tumors, and as a scientific program member for the AANS, CNS, and the American Epilepsy Society. For the past five years she has directed a course, Advanced Techniques in Image-Guided Brain and Spine Surgery, for neurosurgeons from around the country.In the News
