The Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine, also known as the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center, provides specialized neurosurgical care to patients with injury to or diseases of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves, including head and spinal trauma, cerebrovascular disorders, brain and spinal tumors, pediatric diseases, movement disorders, and epilepsy. We provide a complete continuum of care, from pre-treatment evaluation through a wide range of treatment options (many of them nonsurgical or requiring only minimally invasive procedures) to post-treatment care.

"Dr Virk recognized the need for my husband to have urgent surgery and scheduled same within a week. He and his team provided excellent care both before and after surgery. We were impressed with his expertise and compassion."
"Upfront and very knowledgeable. Wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"I had a visit with Dr.Virk this week. What a pleasant visit, what is a pleasure. Dr. Virk took his time with me and explained all the x-ray revealed about my medical situation. He wasn’t pressuring me to have surgery, he was accommodating and helpful. What a wonderful doctor."
