About Ibrahim Hussain, M.D.
I strive to provide compassionate and comprehensive care to my patients. I work with them and their families to provide the optimal solution to medical problems, both inside and outside the operating room. I'm proud to collaborate with the internationally recognized faculty at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian, where I work within a multi-specialist team that includes pain management doctors, neurologists, rehab doctors, physical therapists, oncologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists to provide a safe, timely, and focused treatment plan custom-designed for each patient.
Dr. Ibrahim Hussain is an accomplished neurosurgeon with advanced fellowship training in endoscopic, minimally invasive, and complex reconstructive spine surgery. He treats patients with the full spectrum of spinal disorders, including those with disc herniations, age-related degenerative arthritis, fractures, spinal cord injury, infections, primary and metastatic spinal tumors, congenital anomalies, and scoliosis. A significant portion of his practice is devoted to revision surgeries in those who have had prior spine surgery, and those with peripheral nerve problems such as tumors and compressive neuropathies. Having trained with pioneers of spine surgery at some of the top neurosurgical institutions in the world, Dr. Hussain uses and is involved in the development of state-of-the-art intraoperative technologies that aim to make surgeries safer and less invasive, including three-dimensional computer-assisted navigation, endoscopy, robotics, and augmented reality. He has special interest in performing outpatient and “awake” spine surgeries using Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols when appropriate for patients, which aim to get patients home faster, with less pain, and without the negative effects of general anesthesia.
Dr. Hussain is also committed to advancing the field of spine surgery through other avenues. He is actively engaged in biomedical research and the surgical education and training of Weill Cornell Medicine students, residents, and international fellows. He has published more than 25 book chapters on surgical techniques and neurologic disorders in neurosurgical textbooks used by trainees and surgeons around the world. Additionally, Dr. Hussain has been recruited as a surgical consultant for a number of implant, biotechnology, and bioengineering companies in order to provide expertise for the innovation of next-generation molecular treatments and medical device engineering in spinal surgery.
