Dr. Raj Shrivastava is a board-certified Professor of Neurosurgery and Otolaryngology (ENT) and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs for the Department of Neurosurgery at the Mount SInai Health System. He specializes 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 consisting 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, resulting in several national peer-reviewed publications and awards. Dr. Shrivastava lectures nationally and internationally, often being invited to speak 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, and this will always be his first priority.

Dr. Shrivastava also serves as Associate Director of the Neurosurgery Residency Program.
