David Pisapia, M.D.
As a neuropathologist I am committed to treating every surgical specimen I receive with the utmost care and attention. Patients and their treating physicians rely on an accurate and comprehensive pathology report that often serves as the foundation for devising the most effective treatment strategy. I am constantly thinking about ways to improve the handling and analysis of surgical specimens with the goal of providing the most clinically meaningful information to patients and their treatment team.
Dr. Pisapia is a board-certified anatomic pathologist and neuropathologist who specializes in the diagnosis of neoplasms and other disorders within the central nervous system. He obtained his B.A. from Columbia University in 2000 and his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College in 2009. He completed training in anatomic pathology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical Center and his neuropathology fellowship training at New York-Presbyterian Hospital - Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Pisapia's research interests include furthering the molecular characterization of brain tumors in an effort to reveal therapeutically and prognostically meaningful subclassifications of heterogeneous brain tumors that are often lumped into a single diagnostic entity.
