Dr. Shrivastava is a board-certified Professor of Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology (ENT), specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of skull base tumors, meningiomas, and pituitary tumors. He has sub-specialty fellowship training in complex skull base surgery that entails the use of minimally invasive technologies. These consist of endoscopic, 3D and stereotactic navigation in order to safely remove difficult and "hard-to-reach" brain tumors. He has been active in the advancement and development of these technologies through clinical research which has resulted in several national peer-reviewed publications and awards. Dr. Shrivastava lectures nationally and internationally where he has been invited as a guest Professor and Lecturer. He is an NIH-funded researcher who has been studying the use of Ultra-High Field 7T MRI mapping of skull base tumors to improve patient outcome and safety. He has been appointed to the Editorial Board of neurosurgery journals in the sub-specialty area of skull base and endoscopic surgery.
Most importantly, however, Dr. Shrivastava believes that patient-centered care, good clinical outcome and personalized treatment comes first, this will always be the first priority.
Dr. Shrivastava also serves as Associate Director of the Neurosurgery Residency Program.

Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery
Our group focuses on the clinical implementation of stereotactic and 3D navigation for minimally invasive skull base and pituitary tumor surgery. We are researching unique visual-evoked-potential (VEP) neuro-physiological monitoring to monitor visual pathways during neurosurgical tumor surgery to provide for improved clinical outcome.
Ultra-High Field Tumor Mapping
Our Research Group is an NIH R01 funded program developing newer techniques to accurately map tumors and anatomy using ultra-high field 7T MRI. This will allow for more precise and targeted surgical resections-ultimately for better patient outcome

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Shrivastava did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2017 and/or 2018: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
