Traumatic brain and spine injuries can be the result of car accidents, falls, sports, or violence. The Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center provides a neuroscience approach to brain and spine injuries, from mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI, or concussion) to severe trauma.
The neurosurgeons of the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center treat patients who arrive in the emergency room of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, which is a Level 1 trauma center capable of providing expert medical treatment in emergencies. Our neurosurgeons are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to participate in the emergency care of injuries to the brain and spine.
Our neurosurgeons also treat non-emergency cases, including those less severe injuries that nevertheless cause pain and affect quality of life – and some of New York’s top athletic teams, including the New York Giants, New York Jets, and New York Islanders, put their trust in the experts of the Brain and Spine Center to ensure their players are in top condition.
